From the front lines in France and Russia to the deserts of North Africa and the airfields and convoys of Britain, the campaigns of World War II are yours to command in WW2: Time of Wrath!  This turn-based grand strategy title, the highly improved and expanded sequel to WW2: Road to Victory, puts the player in charge of the political, economic and military decisions of one or more Axis or Allied nations, including minor nations.  A diplomacy system based on political points allows you to sway possible allies to your side.  An upgraded and expanded naval combat system includes fleet engagements, combat patrols, massive aircraft carriers, elusive raiders and U-Boats as well as a convoy system. 

 

Concentrate precious industrial resources on building, training and upgrading a wide variety of combat units from airborne soldiers and armored divisions up to nuclear weapons!  Historical leaders enhance the performance of your armies and hundreds of historical events like the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, Lend-Lease and more give you choices that can change the course of history.  WW2: Time of Wrath is fought across turns that vary in length by season and 25 km hexes with divisions and corps, giving the player a broad strategic picture of the war while still leaving enough room for operational decisions.

Aggressors - Dev Interview!

Friday, May 18, 2018

We had the chance to chat a bit with Pavel Kubat, developer of Aggressors, our epic upcoming 4x game set during Ancient Rome!
 
Matrix: First of all, thanks a lot for your time and congrats for the outstanding job with this game so far. What moved you to adopt the Ancient Mediterranean during the period of the rise of Rome as setting?
 
Pavel Kubat: The Aggressors was initially supposed to be released as a multimod game, but I eventually realized that this was simply not possible. Not just because we had a very small development team, but also because the amount of testing required and likelihood of bugs would not let us finish it.

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock - Dev Diary #6 'The Broken Alliance'

Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Youd think theyd be better shots,said Tobias. There were slugs littered throughout the plating beneath him, but the belt armour had taken most of it. It was like the Cylons hadnt even tried to aim anywhere else. Yknow, for sentient calculators.

Emaline crested the hull a few metres further down, the headlamps of her helmet lost in the flood lighting of the yards dock. Why should they be any better? Field ballistics requires intuition just as much as calculations.
