Strategy specialist Gas Powered Games has announced that work has started on its next big project - a fantasy RTS called Kings and Castles, or quite possibly Chris Taylor's Kings and Castles.

It's described as "an epic real-time strategy game for the PC and next-generation consoles". Players will play as one of three kings vying for control of an "all-new, original fantasy world".

You'll also be able to follow the development closely on Facebook, Twitter (if you follow studio head Chris Taylor, a.k.a. DeathBot9) and at the game's website.

"We want to take our fans on a great adventure with us," said Taylor. "They'll get to go behind-the-scenes and watch the game come to life from start to finish... Synergy will be leveraged, and paradigms will be established. More importantly, buzzwords will be utilised."

Taylor said he wanted to "build the biggest fantasy RTS game" in his funny but otherwise pretty irrelevant first video blog.

Kings and Castles will use Gas Powered Games' existing technology platform, as seen most notably in Supreme Commander and the imminent Supreme Commander 2, due out on 19th March. "Key features include the ability to zoom to any level, incredible maps, and eye-popping visuals that will run on a wide range of systems," says the press release.

No publisher, release date or console platforms were mentioned. Both Supreme Commander games have Xbox 360 versions.
