Trenches - New Features and Fun!

Howdy folks!

I wanted to get on here and relay some of what we have been hard at work on in Trenches in an easy to find/explore thread.

New Unit: Engineer! The engineer will be the next unit added and we hope to put him in around the launch of multiplayer. The Engineer will wield a trenchgun (shotgun) and be able to construct defensive barriers and cut barb wire.

Along with all of this, there will be increased customization, such as the ability to turn off artillery.

Come back often as we continue to update this thread!

Engineer+ Shotgun & Macgyver skills=

He looks and sounds like the most efficient unit yet! Will they also be able to repair damaged trenches?

Love the entire layout thus far from the screens. Will the latest update delete your current campaign mode? More customization will always be great.

Good looks on the update.

Trenches is awesome! First post, felt like I had to add some ideas here

(if the ideas aren't there, here are my ideas)
Levels for multiplayer, everytime you win (or kill a solider) you get exp, higher exp you get, you level up, you know how this works. Put in more weapons, put up some defense stuff (mask, jacket, armor, etc.) higher level you are, better weapon/defense stuff you get (or buy from a 'store', required levels and you get money by winning the game (or amount of soliders youve killed)

Just some ideas I thought that'd make Trenches much funner

Rank too, would be awesome if you're doing the idea ^

(My English isn't that good, I hope you guys understood this post :P)

Hey I love this game and the updates are great, but currently I'm stuck on one of the levels due to artillery I feel it is completely unfair and unbalanced.

Why? Because I have all my troops in 1 bunker and they have literally been there for a few seconds and bam! artillery takes em all out. This just keeps happening over and over while my artillery seems to be A LOT slower.

Dunno is this just me?!?!?

What do you think about giving the Engineers a Gas-mask while constructing bunkers and cutting wires? That may sound a little to epic to counter the gas attacks but they are engineers...

That is a great idea. Maybe even permanent gas masks? We will look into it.
