Firefly announces independently funded Stronghold Kingdoms MMO


Back in April, London-based developer Firefly Studios teased the big reveal of a new installment in its strategy franchise, Stronghold. Today, it delivered, revealing Stronghold Kingdoms, an MMORTS set in the franchise's traditional medieval world. Interestingly enough, Firefly is funding the project itself, giving it the freedom afforded to all independent developers, as well as imbuing it with the fear of crippling financial disaster in the event of failure. Now that's motivation!

We know next to nothing about the game, though Firefly is describing it as a "castle-based MMO." We don't know about you guys, but we're thinking about rolling motte-and-bailey.
