We fucking did it bois, the fort’s ours!

Holdfast is a Napoleonic-era roleplaying shooter game with “enjoyably useless” weapons and a “wonderfully silly but vivid class system” that rewards players for standing in line, listening to nearby musicians, and generally following orders from officers. Thanks to a viral video by an excited Scottish lad, it’s exploded in popularity, although public servers can suffer from “catastrophic toxicity”.

Confirmed, that video is really funny. Somehow it’s a rollercoaster of emotions even though it’s just the same emotion.

I don’t have the hardware to run something like this but it does look really fun.

Back when I binged all the Master and Commander books I was fantasizing about a game very much like this, where a bunch of people would operate and fight a fully realized Napoleonic era battleship. I hope Holdfast takes off so that can be the sequel.

Yeah I’m only interested in this if I can expedite the negotiation of a valuable treaty with a Malay sultan whilst my surgeon calmly murders and dissects two traitors and also at some point befriends an orangutan, before we once again find there is not a moment to be lost and crack on to make all sneer again

This game looks incredible and totally in my wheelhouse. It has a Mount & Blade vibe to it, but instead of bumbling AIs it’s got bumbling actual people.

I did pause for a second at this bit from the Eurogamer article: Basically, you get in line and do what you’re told, normally by someone doing their best attempt at a well-to-do British accent. It’s wonderful.

Boy, did THAT arrangement not work out well for my ancestors.

…that rewards players for standing in line, listening to nearby musicians…

Reminds me of my favorite Fire and Sword clip featuring a guy who joins a large multiplayer server and wanders up and down the parapets playing the bugle.
