Star Hammer is Released!

Thursday, June 04, 2015

Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy is now available on PC and Mac! 

Developer Black Lab Games focused on designing a unique sci-fi game with deep tactical mechanisms. Thanks to the simultaneous turn-based approach, not only do players have the time to think about their next moves, primary targets, and fleet positioning on the battlefield, but they also have the excitement to see the result of their choices during intense real-time sequences.

Human and Nautilid factions have very different assetsand superior firepower will not be enough to seize decisive victory when the enemy benefits from more units and better positions. So daredevil commanders will have to keep a cool head if they want to see the end of the war…

Pandora: First Contact Patch 1.6.0 is out!

Wednesday, June 03, 2015

Pandora: First Contact has been updated to Version 1.6.0!

This large free update tremendously improves the AI, overhauls espionage and rebalances diplomacy. Thanks go to community member Alexander Stumpp's hard work for making it possible. The update also adds the long-awaited French translation, thanks to Steve Torres.The AI will now play a lot more like the best human players play the game: expand slower, dynamically improve tiles, adjust the tax-rate, handle resource emergency situations, prioritize refitting, perform flanking and out-of-sight maneuvers, build more diverse units, effectively use artillery and much more.

To address the repetitive nature of the espionage mechanic, success chance for missions can no longer reach 100% and agents can now lose health even if they complete a mission successfully. To combat exploitative behavior when factions have cities close to eachother, agents now lose all their movement points when entering another faction's territory.

How15 - The Price is Right?

Wednesday, June 03, 2015

There are always discussions going on about this topic. Every single release has its own thread on how expensive the game is, how it should be sold at a lower price to attract a wider audience, how a good discount would sell more copies, all the way to very strong opinions about how our business should be run. 
 
It is definitely something that players are very sensitive about and of course not only in games. You can buy Vietnam '65 for the price of two beers in a decent pub and Order of Battle: Pacific for less then a dinner for two. Still, there is someone saying prices are too expensive, or various other arguments and they all sound prefectly reasonable and valid. 
What is also interesting is the perception of prices out there. Matrix Games and Slitherine are perceived as companies that never discount games, despite a total of over 500 temporary price reductions per year, including a 7 weeks long Holiday Sale at Christmas time, an Easter sale including all releases and a massive number of other rebates.
