Enter the year 1914, which will mark the beginning of the first man made catastrophe of the 20th century. From the smoking revolver of the Serbian nationalist and grab for glory of a dying empires, that were slowly losing their legitimacy, death, despair and chaos that has finally put an end to the ancient European monarchies was born.

This is not a story about warrior kings, frivolous noblemen searching for glory or about armchair generals which without a thought sent millions to their deaths. This is a story about people caught in the wheels of history, giving their youth and possibly their own lives for the people they will never meet and alliances they have never signed. With nothing to rely on except their wits and help from their new allies they are thrust into the chaos that is the Great War.

The script of "1914" is 90% written, but we are unsatisfied with the look of our character portraits and game maps. We have contacted several artists and are expecting to have a fully complete product in a month.


We are a team of five video game enthusiasts with a childhood dream of making our own video games witch laid dormant till now.
As a team of RPG loving history buffs, with special intrest in the turbulent first half of the 20th century, we have always wanted to put it in the video game media to touch as many people as possible. The script has been carefully written to reflect the situation of 1914 as faithfully as possible. We are hoping you will enjoy playing this game as we have enjoyed writting it.
