Reverie announces an official release date for Dawn of Fantasy
, saying their RTS game will be released on April 1st, adding "and, no, this is not an early April Fool's Day joke" (acknowledging and simultaneously ignoring the fact that real game news is as inappropriate on that date as fake news). They offer a new trailer
showing off the game, and the following explanation of what to expect:
Toronto, Canada 27/03/2013 Indie MMORTS game Dawn of Fantasy: Kingdom Wars will soon become the latest 'Greenlit' title to be released on Steam.
