, a strategy game set in the waning days of the Roman Empire. Jon Shafer's At the Gates casts you as the leader of a barbarian tribe, ready to fill the power vacuum left by a great power in decline. You must compete not only against other nations, but with an environment that does not eagerly feed your people and armies. The resources of the world you are constantly depleting, requiring you to move your tribe in search of new ones - or to pillage those of your neighbors.
