Just wondering if Matrix will be carrying this one? Don't think it was listed as an upcoming title from the recent press event. Thanks....

Yes, I know about ToF, and yes they seem similar, but this seems to be a new game perhaps?

You're right, it definitely is a new game.

With a hex map that is only 68x47 this may be a simpler version of TOF for the Risk / Stratego crowd. But I don't know for sure.

Yes, it's a new game but it's the same old game. Time of Fury is basically the same thing as Time of Wrath and you can see the same menus and icons and graphics in the new game. I'm sure they will add some stuff to it but basically if you like the first two you will probably like the third - if you don't like the system not much is going to change to make you love it.

Yeah that surprised me too, I couldn't find anything that this new title was intended for handhelds or tablets only...?

I wish they'd roll this out on Android or iOS - seems small enough for that

We are going to release the game on PC first. Other platforms depends on the sales level.

Doom,
With a map this small it's a perfect fit for tablets. What are the units? Army an corp sized units?

Looking at one of the screenies, I see xxxx's and xxx's so yeah, armies and corps. Can't tell if there is stacking though. Seems like you would need it at this scale or you wouldn't have room for all your units.

Iain, could you please check if the game runs on 1024 x 600 (netbook)?

Thanks

@Doomtrader...

Not sure if it's me only, but in the previous games i have almost no music running in the background...i think it would be nice if it did.

Cheers

What is this? Europe grand stratagy again? Isn't this Wastelands fourth one? Looks like all the others. Time for something new. IMHO.

I agree with Von. I can't see why I would buy this game unless of course it was released on tablet form. It looks like a scaled down version of TOF. TOF is one of my favorite games to play. Why would I want a lesser version of that game?

It's probably for people who have found ToF too complex.

Indeed Perturabo.
To play Time of Fury 1939 campaign you need a lot of time, need to move hundreds of units and make a lot of decisions, when you sum up everything it gives you sometimes around a month to complete the game. Some people have much less time to spare for gaming and would like to play more accessible games but still with good mechanisms in the background.

I can promise that the next game we will release is not a grand strategy.

Generally, what usually puts me off strategic and operational games is the huge quantity of units to micro-manage.

Will it have a demo?

After looking at the map again. I think the only unit size that would work would be army sized or army groups. With a movement no greater than two spaces at a time. So I see your point in a lot fewer pieces to move around. Probably 90% less units in TOF.

Thanks for the video Doom. I think I will pass. But if there every was a game that cried "put me on a tablet" it's this game and I'd be the first to buy it.

Thanks
