Type: Press Release


After decades of exploration, mankind has finally found a new hope. A new planet to conquer and colonize. They call it Pandora. From the frozen ice lands of the north, to vast deserts and lush tropical forests in the south, the planet is vast and hosts a wide variety of eco-regions. It is the perfect last resort for mankind. But it is far from being desolate, with indigenous life already covering the planet, but how will they react to alien invaders?


Pandora: First Contactis the latest science fiction 4X turn-based strategy game published by Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) and Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) and developed by Proxy Studios (www.proxy-studios.com). The game follows in the footsteps of classics like Alpha Centauri and Galactic Civilizations, but it also creates a completely new world of its own, with hundreds of creatures, settings, technological innovations and a never-seen-before range of deadly weapons. In development for now more than two years, Pandora: First Contact is something really novel in the genre of civilization-style games.

We are very excited about this new project”, said Iain McNeil, development director of Slitherine. “This year’s line-up is shaping to be very attractive to a wide range of players and we are proud to bring such an intense, immersive and engaging sci-fi strategy game to our audience worldwide”.

The game is set to release towards the end of spring, with the open beta now available for registration at http://www.slitherine.com/beta_test/PandoraPC.

Strategic Command Situational AAR The Road to Warsaw part 1

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

Greetings, and welcome to this second series of beta After Action Reports (AAR) for Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe. This and succeeding AARs will be a little different from others you may have read. First, they will not concentrate on a single campaign; more reports will be forthcoming, but each will instead focus on a different perspective and theatre, such as Germany attacking Poland; the Allies defending North Africa; and the Soviets attempting to repel the Axis invaders, among others. I will also vary the focus onto certain aspects, such as naval warfare, Diplomacy, Research, and so on.

The recent asymmetrical conflict in Ukraine is only the last one plaguing the region. Situation is still fragile in Moldova and Transnistria, where tensions between Pro-Russian separatists and the rest of the population are part of the daily agenda.

How far Moscow will want to go further in escalating the conflict? And will the NATO countries be able to overcome their differences and act as a whole?
