The Few – indie RTS about the Battle of Britain

Category: Games

We’ve just released “The Few”!
It is an indie RTS game for PC and Mac which allows the player to take command of RAF Fighter Command during one of World War 2’s greatest historic turning points: the Battle of Britain.

The goal of the game is to defend Great Britain against German bombing raids.

The game has two distinct gameplay experiences where the player manages war production, squadron placement and organises patrol routes and tactics.
Once combat is initiated the player can lead their squadrons to attack waves of German bombers.

The game follows the historical timeline very closely, but at the same time – the game mechanics are easy to learn (yet hard to master) and it provides great entertainment for both seasoned and novice players.

* There are 12 aircrafts in the game – including of course the famous Supermarine Spitfire.
* Every pilot is earning his own experience and flying skills
* Manage the British war machine – decide what should be built and where
* Fight epic air battles
* Lead English, Polish, Czechs and New Zelands squadrons to fight for freedom

The game implements ‘German Command AI” which results in each campaign playing out differently. No two games will ever be the same.

In addition the game comes with a full scenario creation system, allowing the player to create their own bespoke battles.

    Any plans to sell The Few through Humble?
    The idea of getting a DRM-free + Steam code is very appealing to me.

  3. Dustin

    I should clarify that I know the game hasn’t been Greenlit yet, but I’m hopeful. :)

  4. Dustin

    Oh god. Last comment, I promise. (I can’t figure out a way to delete my previous comments)

    I also see that you can buy a DRM-free copy on your site and get a Steam code when/if you’re Greenlit. The thing I like about Humble is it consolidates a person’s DRM-free games while Steam obviously consolidates your Steam games.

    Dustin – yup, we’ll try to contact Humble once we’ll have the version we would consider “final” :)

    Glad to hear it!
    Thanks for the quick reply.
