Crown of Glory takes you back to the Napoleonic era, where you can command one of eight major powers, including France, England, Spain, Prussia, Russia, Austria, Turkey, and Sweden, in an mixed operational and grand strategy game where glory is paramount.  Glory can be earned through a variety of methods, ranging from combat and conquest to culture and diplomacy.

 

Crown of Glory is divided into two segments of play, a month by month strategic mode where you control the production, troop movements, diplomatic missions, and development decisions of your country, and a tactical or quick battle mode, with turns consisting of twenty minute intervals to decide the outcome of major battles. 

 

Crown of Glory covers both land and naval warfare.  Armies and Navies feature a variety of realistic units, each with distinct advantages and disadvantages.  Battle maps cover the whole range of terrain and weather conditions, depending on where and when on the strategic map you fight.  Take artillery, horsemen, jaeger infantry, frigates, privateers and famous leaders into battle for glory and power!

 

The robust economic, trade and diplomatic systems allow for a wide variety of strategies beyond the production of military units.  You will interact with 90 minor powers spanning over 200 different provinces, creating treaties, trade agreements, and convincing them to join your side as protectorates.  Use money and social influence to gain control where force is unwise or unnecessary.  Develop or plunder to boost the glory of your homeland.  Glory may be fleeting, but obscurity lasts forever!

Aggressors Testers Diary - Modding

Friday, June 15, 2018

As a young player I was always browsing game files trying to find a way to change them. It was partially curiosity and partially a wish to modify the rules to my own liking, because no matter how great a game is, there is always something you want to tweak or adjust.

The option of modding was part of the game design from the very beginning as I wanted to give the players the opportunity to create the Aggressors realm with me in an easy and user-friendly way. Over time, the idea was brought even further – I decided to create a framework for strategy games of different worlds and historical eras.

Monday, June 11, 2018

June, 1944. Europe has been under the Nazi heel for 4 long years. Even if the Eastern Front is crumbling and the Red Army counterattacks are in full swing, the German Armed Forces are still a formidable opponent and are making very costly every inch of ground conquered.

Only a breach into the Festung Europa and the creation of a second front could ensure the beginning of the end of the Third Reich.
