For anyone who is new to our thread, check out more game info below!

Hi everyone! We’re really excited to share with you guys our iOS/Android game, The Long Siege, that’s coming up real soon this June 2015.

To describe it in a line: It’s an action-packed, role-playing, real-time puzzle game that uses an unconventional match 3 belt system. Sounds like quite a handful, doesn’t it? It is! But that’s what makes the game delightfully hectic and engaging.

Match tiles to summon your units and embark on a siege against enemy towers that are dominating the world. The path will not be easy as it is ridden with unique enemies and bosses, but you can level up your characters, unlock ultimate weapons for each class, bolster your defenses and earn powerful upgrades that will enhance the gameplay and change your playstyle as you progress. Oh have we mentioned upgradeable tiles!?

The game will be a one-time purchase with no ads or in-app purchases. To find out more about The Long Siege, check out our website at http://www.thelongsiege.com/

Here are some artwork concepts for the game, and also a GIF beta preview of the gameplay. We're still working on some videos, hang tight!

Update: Announcing it here first on TouchArcade, our gameplay teaser is ready! Check it out

Upgrade Screen
We also made a GIF to show what the upgrade screens are like in game, it's a seamless transition so that navigating around will be easy and hassle-free


(our gifs are still wip but we're getting there!)

All upgrades can be seen visually in the game, either graphically so (looks-wise) or differing in effects or both. So upgraded weapons (and characters etc) will have different appearances from their previous counterparts, in more ways than one

Tile Varieties
Matching goes by color, shape and image on the tiles. The image posted above is a display of the tile varieties available in game (not to show the actual matching system or tile board). 1st three rows show the unit tiles that are upgradeable as you level up your characters (left being what you start out with and right being the highest level) and the 4th row consists of other utility tiles that are also paramount to gameplay. We have a few more special tiles that aren't revealed here

The pics look great. Glad to see that it will be premium. Most match games these days are not....
Good luck to you
