Type: Press Release


Matrix Games and Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) announce their participation at HISTORICON, a gaming convention devoted to historical gaming, which takes place in Fredericksburg, VA over 4 days in July each year. 

HISTORICON draws thousands of gamers from around the world together with a variety of vendors offering everything needed to recreate historical or fictional conflicts throughout the ages and beyond. Scenarios range from ancient history to the modern era, while some even create games from the rich worlds of Sci-Fi and Fantasy. There are tournaments, seminars and a Hobby University of painting classes and events.

During the event, on the 18th and 19th July, Slitherine Group will host its annual press conference to discuss and present its forthcoming projects to industry journalist, developers, guests and personalities. The most important will without doubt be Dr. Buzz Aldrin, former U.S. Air Force combat pilot (66 missions in Korea) and NASA astronaut, who took part in the first Moon landing mission and became the second human being to walk on the Moon.

Dr Aldrin’s attendance will undoubtedly thrill and delight event attendees. He is collaborating with Slitherine and their developer Polar Motion in the creation of Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager which depicts the race to conquer outer space.

Slitherine is proud to be associated with Dr. Aldrin and his presence at the event will be an exciting and memorable moment for everyone associated with the press conference and Historicon. “We are grateful for the opportunity to thank Buzz for the tremendous support and encouragement that he is giving to the entire team who are working on the project. His input and expansive knowledge of the game subject matter is unique and unmatchable” said JD McNeil Slitherine’s  CEO.

    Desert War is OUT

    Thursday, March 22, 2018

    1940. While in Europe the German war machine seems unstoppable, in the desert of North Africa the British and its Commonwealth Allies are not willing to concede an easy victory to the Axis. Italian forces - even if initially numerically superior - are not adequately trained or equipped for a prolonged war in such environment, and soon they send request for aid to avoid complete defeat. Berlin answers to the call and a blocking force led by General Erwin Rommel is organized and dispatched to the Libyan shores.

    Now, the day has come. Are you ready for Desert War?


    Desert War Tutorial Guide

    Wednesday, March 21, 2018

    Training is fondamental. Without that, even the best eqipped troops can be prey of a better prepared enemy. You must know your own troops, their potential and limits. 
    As a commander, you must adapt your plan to un expected situations and quickly, because time is essential and the more you wait the more chances you are leaving to the enemy to exploit your mistakes.
    This is even truer in desert warfare, where the harsh environment conditions have a direct impact on communication, movement and more.
