Prepare Your Defences! Diplomacy is Not an Option Launches on 26th January

Build your settlement and ready your armies in this city-builder, tower defence strategy game for PC

London, UK – 1st December 2022 – Today, Door 407 is proud to announce that Diplomacy is Not an Option will launch in on PC, Wednesday 26th January 2022. A strategy game with a few surprise twists, Diplomacy is Not an Option will combine fan-favourite elements of the city-builder, tower defense and RTS genres.

In Diplomacy is Not an Option, players become a medieval feudal lord in a midlife crisis. Build your settlement, strengthen your economy, but beware: Hordes of enemies, swarms of scary monsters and crowds of rebellious peasants can at any second bring a little life to your working schedule. Waste no time on diplomacy. This is your chance to show’em who’s in charge.

Players will need to make important decisions to keep their settlement thriving and safe:

  • Control resources, decide what will be gathered and how best to use it
  • Research new technologies and building trees
  • Recruit units, control their movements and decide how to best defend the castle walls
  • Face moral dilemmas, human stupidity and shortsightedness that can lead to fatal consequences
  • Stay on the right side of magical laws to avoid zombie uprisings and harness a vaporising god ray
  • Complete regular missions and ultimate goals in a quest for power

Above all, keep in mind that the laws of physics are thoroughly reproduced in Diplomacy is Not an Option to maximize player immersion in a medieval war. Tens of thousands of units can fight on the screen at the same time, every gun has a certain range, medieval shells fly by an arc trajectory, arrows bounce off stone walls, archers have blind spots and closed gates can become an obstacle not only for the enemy – but also retreating units.

Diplomacy is Not an Option is a game without unnatural limitations. From the very first task, players are given the entire available arsenal and all in-game mechanics are unlocked. Players have full control over strategy for their city to prosper… or perish.

After a successful demo period full of amazing and helpful feedback, Diplomacy is Not an Option will launch Early Access via Steam on 26th January 2022, featuring a whole host of upgrades and new features.

The Early Access build will contain two campaign missions, the wave survival mode, and most upgrades and research skills. In the run up to full launch, Developer Door 407 plans to finalize the campaign mode, add missions, diversify units and buildings, and improve the interface.
