"The Lord God is my Armour!" - Gustavus Adolphus, refusing the steel body armour offered by his aides, 16th September 1632.

Since the beginning of the Italian Wars in 1494, Europe has been turned into an endless killing ground. Armies are raised one after another, sooner or later involving all the powers and kingdoms of the Old Continent in the conflicts. This is a time of cruelty and great military innovations. This is the era of the birth of Modern States and the definitive death of the Middle Ages.

This is the Iron Century!

Pike and Shot: Campaigns is released! The latest and comprehensive title in the Pike and Shot franchise is finally out!

Challenge yourself with 4 historical campaigns, including the eruption of Gustavus Adolphus’s innovative army into the Thirty Years War, the rise of the famous Roundheads during the English Civil War, and the great 1683 siege of Vienna by the Ottoman Empire, or choose your troops from 21 new skirmish army lists and lead them into furious battles across the Europe!

Your destiny awaits! Grab the game here!

If you wish to learn more about the game, be sure to join us live on Twitch.tv tonight for a gameplay session of Pike & Shot: Campaigns!

IMPORTANT!

Pike and Shot: Campaigns is a stand-alone release and includes all the content from the Pike and Shot base game and the Tercio to Salvo expansion. Any community scenarios you had installed for the previous Pike & Shot releases will have to be redownloaded for Pike & Shot Campaigns.

Owners of Pike and Shot get a 75% discount when upgrading to Pike and Shot : Campaigns. If you have a version from our site or an affiliated store you’ll have a serial. Your Pike and Shot serial will act as a discount code to give you 75% when applied to your shopping cart on the Slitherine or Matrix sites.

If you bought from Steam, all you need to do is go to the Steam page and your discount will be pre-applied. Please note the Steam discount is only valid until the 27th October so make sure you upgrade before then!

In addition, be aware that Pike & Shot: Campaigns is not multiplayer compatible with the previous Pike & Shot games. So if you have any PBEM++ games running from the previous Pike & Shot releases, then be sure not to uninstall your old game until these have been completed.

WarPlan Dev Diary #2 - Land and Air System

Monday, June 24, 2019

The land system for a wargame is one of the most crucial parts of the game. Land units allow you to control territory which is how you win the game. Nothing generates as much excitement and a healthy level of anxiety than seeing a Russian front stretched from Leningrad to Rostov with both players desperately trying to achieve their goals while feeling they don’t have enough resources just as the weather turns to mud.

I wanted to add flavor to the operational level of WarPlan without overwhelming the players with information or actions. I tried to take what was important and incorporate it as simple decisions for units grouped in as few categories as possible. This way they can make quick decisions without overwhelming procedures. This is also incorporated into the fog of war system which is based on inaccurate and incomplete information instead of being completely blind to what is happening where. Play like a general not a calculator.
