Robert Crandall to Discuss Upcoming Patch and What’s Next!

Matrix Games is happy to announce a live chat session with Robert Crandall to discuss the modern strategy game Flashpoint Germany.  The chat will be open to the general public with topics covering what will be coming in their latest patch, future patches, and what ideas the chat attendees have for improving the game.  The chat will begin on July 14th, 2005 at 10:00 PM Eastern US time and is accessible from the Matrix Games website.

This rare opportunity gives fans and newcomers to the genre a chance to ask the creators of the game nearly anything they want, either about the games or about developing complex strategy titles.  The chat is set to begin at 10:00 PM Eastern US time from the Matrix Games website.  The chat is accessible through the Services section of the Matrix Games website or by clicking “Users in Chat” from anywhere on the site.

 

Flashpoint Germany occurs at the height of the cold war.  The historical outcome we know hasn’t happened yet and this time things will end differently.  This time, with the world at the brink of World War III and the Soviet Union in a state of near collapse, the decision to seek a military solution was made.  Square off as either the Warsaw Pact or the NATO alliance in this war to end all wars!

 

Flashpoint Germany spans 17 different scenarios and comes complete with a scenario editor, order of battle guide and equipment database.  Additionally, players can play online, by e-mail, or against a competitive computer opponent.  Each battle map is a detailed representation of the German landscape, representing the actual terrain that would have influenced battles throughout West Germany.

Star Hammer: the Vanguard Prophecy is out on XBox One!

Friday, August 26, 2016

The game has had a tremendous amount of good press when it released on PC and iOS last year, but it took quite a while to upgrade the graphics and adapt the UI to the console systems. The whole concept of brining a deep PC strategy game is not easy to translate into practice. Ease-of-use and accessibility are key to the console players to enjoy games, but we made it!

It’s a game of 3D tactical space battles where players take part in the Second Contact War in a campaign with a branching story and over 60 missions. The game also allows to create own scenarios in skirmish mode battles. Orders are given during pause times of a perfectly balanced WEGO system, then players watch the results unfold in intriguing pausable real-time. There’s a pretty extensive arsenal of crew abilities and assault class ships, making the game extremely varied.

Strategic Command Blog Post #2: 'Artificial Intelligence'

Thursday, August 11, 2016

In 2002, the original Strategic Command game was a relatively simple construct. With a limited rule set and a much smaller 62x37 map of approximately 2300 hexes, the requirements for the AI were not necessarily trivial, but in general terms, they were straightforward.

Fast forward to today, and Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe has been expanded into a modifiable hexagonal game engine allowing map sizes of up to 512x512 or 262,144 hexes!
