How about some more info about SS now that you're full into it? What theaters will be covered? North Africa, Italy, Sicily? What years will be covered? How long are you planning for its development? Six months, a year, or...?

What else can you reveal to really get our mouths watering?

Southern Storm is still Cold War based Central Europe in the 80s. Adding in 4 new countries to the mix (Canada, France, East Germany, and Czechoslovakia). Beyond that we will be looking to add and improve a number of features we've talked about over the past year or so of Red Storm work. We will start to talk a bit more about things soon and we want to start a designer blog over on our website to highlight some of those new items as we move forward. As for release timing, when it's done and ready.

Cool, but why is it called Southern Storm?

Southern Germany/Europe Front. We will look at other areas after release like the North (Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Poland) and even some talk of an Arctic Storm with Sweden, Norway and Finland, but that's all talk right now. Plus we want to hit other places (Med/Mid-East, Far East, etc.) and times (WW2, modern, and other cold war decades). Just going to take some time to get there.

Darn. So you never hired interns to convert the database and model over to WWII. Well there is always next summer. But you know how nature abhors a vacuum. What did Georgie say? "A good plan violently executed right now is far better than a perfect plan executed next week." Of course I am biased toward WWII and it shows.

I would absolutely love Arctic Storm. Not that many wargames that take place in Sweden. Turn "talk" into "action" - please

The team has gone from 2 to our current 6. I would say we are aware of how to build a team. Interns not withstanding!

George was talking about actual warfare not games based on it. We have a really good plan or two, trust me on this - I've seen the plans, but they need much more work before you would think they should be executed.

You are with some very good company including the design team. We will move the game series out to encompass more time frames. God willing and the creek don't rise. It just takes time when you have guys that do this in their spare time. Everything takes time.

Good Hunting.

Well this is a little gem of a game, don't take too long, I'm 64 and can't wait forever! Ha...

One thing to consider in making a decision where to take this engine. There is another Matrix Game from another design group. Has Brexit in the title. Updating to a very modern standard and using flashpoints around the world today this might bring greater relevancy to this series. A simulation based in the 80's over wars that did not occur can only take you so far...

As stated above, Poland will be added with the Northern Storm expansion after Southern is launched.

Thanks for the support. We appreciate all of you as well.

Good Hunting.

Is SS an addon/DLC to the main FPC or a completely new game ?
Will all maps and features of FPC still exist in SS ?
Thanks

Southern Storm will be a completely new game. Much of the engine is being rewritten and many new features are being added. The plan is to eventually adapt Red Storm maps and scenarios to Southern Storm, but we don't know how that will look (and its possibilities) until we are finished with Southern Storm. Southern Strom should have the look and feel of Red Storm but with many improvements and additions.
