On Worms Forts: Under Siege, or "that time when Team17 got really innovative"


Retro reflections by Matt S. 

This week brings us a brand new Worms game from Team17. One of the most venerable franchises in the industry, Worms has been around since 1995, has seen over 20 releases, and has continued to delight audiences over the years thanks to its tight, balanced gameplay, and utterly hilarious sense of humour.
