Back to News Listing D-Day sale! Discount on all Western Front games!

Posted: Friday, June 3, 2016 by Alberto Casulini

Type: News

On June 6 1944 the Allied forces under the supreme command of Eisenhower launched the largest amphibious invasion in history. The goal was to land in France and finally liberate mainland Europe after so many years of Nazi occupation. Many men died on that day and performed the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom. One year later, fascism had been defeated and peace had been restored to the world.

We at Slitherine will always remember. We just make games, but in our own small way we can help other people keep the memory of such heroic and tragic times alive, in the hope they will never be repeated.

Over the years we have released a number of games set on the western front of World War II. We are giving a 30% discount on them, starting from today, until the 6th of June! The discount is valid only in our stores (Matrix Games, Slitherine & AGEod). For those games which are available on Steam you’ll also be given a free Steam key. All you have to do is write “D-Day30” in the coupon code field when you’re buying the games from our stores.

Field of Glory 2 Developers Diary - A.I.

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

The AI for Field of Glory II has been developed by building on the knowledge gained from developing the generally praised AI for Pike and Shot and Sengoku Jidai.
 
Deployment
For non-preset scenarios, it is important that the AI can deploy its army in a sensible formation, taking account of the prevailing terrain.
Generally speaking, most ancient armies would deploy with an infantry centre in one or more lines. (Usually three for Romans, usually only one for Hellenistic armies). They would then have cavalry on both wings and perhaps in reserve, plus light troops both in the centre and on the wings.

Gettysburg: The Tide Turns is out!

Thursday, July 13, 2017

The Battle of Gettysburg, fought between the Army of the Potomac and the Army of Northern Virginia, is considered by many the turning point of the American Civil War.

Lasted three days, from July 1st to July 3rd, 1863, the battle saw many epic and tragic moments, culminating in the famous Pickett's Charge, the desperate frontal assault of the confederates against the unionist defensive lines at Cemetery Ridge.

Today, Shenandoah and Slitherine are very proud to release Gettysburg: The Tide Turns, the brilliant hex-based wargame that will make you relive all the hard tactical choices the Confederates and the Unionists had to take during these long and crucial days of fierce fighting.
