Matrix Games and SSG Re-release Classic Space Strategy Game for 2005! Matrix Games announced today that the re-release of the SSG (www.ssg.com.au) classic Reach for the Stars has gone gold and is expected to be available for sale this week. The updated version of Reach for the Stars, which is based on the 2000 release, contains bug fixes and enhancements that were never released to the public.

The original Reach for the Stars is noted to have been a pioneer in 4x Space Strategy games.  4x Strategy refers to the four activities you perform, Explore, Expand, Exploit, and Exterminate.  Reach for the Stars for Matrix Games has been reworked for greater stability and incorporates the final unreleased version from Strategic Studies Group, the developers of the original and 2000 releases.

In Reach for the Stars there are fifteen races, each with specific advantages and disadvantages, and you must lead yours to victory by conquering and researching.  You can, for instance, take the Combine race and use superior weapons and military equipment to your advantage, or the powerhouse economy of the LsLs.  As you grow and research new buildings and ships become available to you, which will help you conquer new worlds and new enemies.

Ageod announces The English Civil War!

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

“I had rather have a plain, russet-coated Captain, that knows what he fights for, and loves what he knows, than that you call a Gentleman and is nothing else” Oliver Cromwell, 1643

The shadow of the Thirty Years War hit the British Isles in 1625, as Charles I became King of England. Accustomed to a weaker Scottish Parliament, the new King found fiercer opposition from the Parliament in London.

Now, only two decades later, open war has started with the Royalists facing the Parliamentarians, and the conflict is raging in England and Scotland.

The Country is at odds, its population forced to take a side and torn apart by religious divisions.
