First winner of Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great’s “Win your own army” contest! Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) and Koios Works (www.koiosworks.com) are proud to announce that Mr. Irving Schwartz has won his very own Persian army consisting of fifteen of the actual miniatures that were used to create the digital Persian army in Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great.

We at Matrix Games took some time to speak with General Schwartz about his potential upcoming plan for world domination with the new army.  He has gone on record saying “This is great. Finally I’ll have a set of miniatures I didn’t have to paint myself!”  Could this be a clue to his dastardly plan to fend off the impending Greek invasion and bid for world domination?

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games said, “While we don’t condone world domination, except in our games, it is always a pleasure to give back to our customers.  We will continue to work with Koios Works to bring new contests for the many hopeful generals of the world and we give them our thanks for making this one possible.”

Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great places you in the role of Alexander the Great during his conquest of the known world. Guide Alexander through his grand campaign from inheriting his father’s legacy at the battle of Thebes to his conquest of Darius III and the Persian Empire through his last great battle at the Hydaspes, in the heart of Asia against the Indian army of King Porus.

Empires Apart Dev Diary - The goal of the game

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

In our previous dev diaries we focused on the different available game modes, as well as the design behind the UI. Today we are going to cover a number of different subjects, but all have something in common: why we decided to make Empires Apart.

It’s no secret that we drew heavy inspiration from games that marked our childhood: Age of Empires, Empire Earth, and others. We wanted to bring back that feeling, the familiar atmosphere of games we loved, but also add our own touch, as well as modernize the formula, bring it to 2018’s standards. Empires Apart is, basically, the game we wanted to play.


Desert War Mechanicics .Shock Explained

Tuesday, March 13, 2018


“Everyone was talking and chatting, when slowly came into sight the first tank I ever saw.  Not a monster but a very graceful machine with beautiful lines….  Here was the missing tool of penetration, the answer to the dominance on the battlefield of small-arms fire.”—J.F.C. Fuller

Matrix Games/Slitherine’s upcoming release of Brian Kelly’s Desert War 1940-42 uses a simple game mechanic often found in WWII board games.  It gives tank units a “special place” in the player’s toolbox—a positive shift to the combat force ratio if attacking, and the opposite when defending.  Coming up short of attack factors?  No problem!  Throw in some tanks.  A 1 to 1 attack can become a 2 to 1, 3 to 1, 4 to 1, etc.  In Desert War 1940
