10 Years of Fortress Forever
Development of Fortress Forever started in 2004, and version 1.0 was released on September 13, 2007. Today marks ten years since that initial release.

In those ten years, Fortress Forever has seen:
  • 18 patches
  • 88 volunteer developers
  • Hundreds of community maps
  • 3,948 code commits by 24 different programmers
  • 7,860 asset commits by 59 different developers
  • 8,477 page edits on the FF wiki
  • 17,801 pickup games in #ff.pickup
  • 23,374 threads on the FF forums
  • 146,341 downloads since the Steam release (March 2015), and an unknowable number of downloads before then (download numbers weren't tracked)
  • Millions of collective hours played
To celebrate, let's take a look back through the years via various videos made by the community in that time:

Thank you to everyone that has played and supported this game--you are what has allowed FF to reach this milestone.

Thank you squeek and all your compadres for giving us so many hours of your time, so we could sink so many of our own. :)

Anyone still playing these days? I've seen some servers but empty as usual...
