Gas Powered Games founder Chris Taylor has been doing weekly vlogs over at the Kings and Castles website as a fun way of promoting the game for a while now. And while the first few weeks mainly featured antics such as horse feeding and playing with chickens, he seems to have settled into a preferred formula of “one part info, five parts crazy”. His latest video ninjas in a preview of how formations will work.
