Got some tiny animals roaming the country side now!

Woah... haven't updated here in a while.
Well, I've finally gotten around to creating a "functional" website for the Game. It's even got a Mailing list! (mainly because I read on reddit that that might be a good idea).
Also, Ernesto Irawan has finished a couple of Characters for the Game, which I think look awesome!
I've been trying to come up with a sensible way to describe my Game in a short and concise manner. But it's just so hard I find. To me, every aspect of my Game seems interesting, or else it wouldn't be in it, but it would bloat the infamous "Elevator Pitch".
This is a thing I've read a lot about, but never thought it would be a problem. I mean, I could talk about my Game for days... But how to tell someone about it in just a few seconds?
I've been reading a lot of Elevator Pitch Articles, but they are all aimed at your typical Inventor-Wants-To-Do-Startup type of guys, but not at GameDevs. I also tried looking at the websites of Big Games, hoping their short summary of the Game could help me develop an Elevator Pitch. No Luck.
Do you guys know a good Article on how to write a really good Elevator Pitch for Games? Not meant as an actual Pitch at Investors, but more like, when at an Expo and someone wants to know what your Game is about?
I'd also love to hear some of your Pitches!
Yeah, the blur is indeed to intense :P I turned it up to test if it works and kind of... forgot about it.
I'll add the Platforms to the Post, good point! I'm aiming for Windows and Linux at this time.
The Minimap (made with glorious MSPaint skills for the time being..) shows the entire World/Continent. Each colored "dot" represents a Castle and it's owner. Mainly because the entire World is 32.768 x 32.768 Voxels (roughly 5 Billion Voxels) in size and, thanks to the ray-tracing method i use, the player has "infinite" view distance. I get lost constantly :P
Since November 2014 I've been working on a little Game called Spellwrath.
In Spellwrath, the player takes command of an army consisting of knights and their loyal companions, to battle for control of the world of Eyja. Between fighting enemies in turn-based combat and leveling units, the player will be constructing castles, forging mighty weapons, journeying on heroic quests and organizing champions!
You can also follow the progress on Twitter @Spellwrath where I post updates of the Game in "real-time".
Some Screenshots / Videos
The Following is an early look at the turn-based Combat System I am working on at this moment.
Apart from Combat, the Player can actually construct his castle as he pleases. Each Building has it's own function, as expected.
To actually "use" buildings the player can enter them. For example, below we have the Tavern in which the Player can accept Quests. (Ignore the naked people)
On the technical side of things, the Game uses a custom made Engine which does real-time ray-tracing combined with traditional rasterization.
It's still very early to talk about release, but I am aiming for 2018.
The target Platforms are Windows and Linux, with a possibility of a Mac release.
