The next entry in the long-running Age of Empire series is Castle Siege, a touch-based game built for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 by Smoking Gun Interactive.
Players will gather resources and build up civilizations such as the Britons and Teutons and then go on the attack, swiping their finger to send troops into battle to bring down other empires.
If you'd rather skip the trailer, this quote from the announcement should tell you whether or not this "fast-paced experience" is right for you: "Castle Siege is built for you to enjoy the expansiveness of an Age of Empires game with the speed and simplicity of touch-based gaming."
