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
