Type: Press Release

 

It has now been more than one full week since our “Home of Wargamers” press event has in Stresa, Italy, with our . With a healthy number of press and developers in attendance, as well as our wonderful staff from around the world, the event was a guaranteed success. Responses from those in attendance and those in the social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and our forums and on other internet sites has been positive, with press sending in requests for more information and access to press packs and trying to get in interview time with our developers and staff!

Link to the original announcement of the press event!

For us, the use of social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter helped us greatly in getting out information about the press event, as well as announcing titles and information related to them as they came out live. In the period from April 19 to April 25, the Facebook pages for both Matrix Games and Slitherine reached more than 2,500 people, with more than 100 people talking about us directly. Combine with the fact that those people we reached out to and talked about us, was seen by their friends, we have reached numbers even higher. Twitter extended our reach even further, since we have a total of 230 followers at this time. On top of Facebook and Twitter, our forums have been particularly active and responded positively to our announcements. It is hard to say which game the crowds are leaning to, due to the amount of interest and response to them. Suffice to say we believe that all the titles have struck a lot of you guys' interest!

The press we invited out to the event has spent the past few days posting about their experience and about the games we have announced. Below are a few links to these sites that attended and what they posted about.

    Spread the Revolution or fight against it! March to Glory is OUT!

    Thursday, April 12, 2018

    ''Napoleon is a torrent which as yet we are unable to stem. Moscow will be the sponge that will suck him dry.'' - Prince Mikhail Illarionovich Golenishchev-Kutuzov, Field Marshal of the Russian Empire

    Napoleon Bonaparte seems unstoppable. His military genius combined with the revolutionary fire of his troops has crushed every enemy that stood against him. He has already proved his ability against the Austrians in northern Italy, and now, as Emperor is ready to overthrow every European kingdom.

    Is he the Son of the Revolution, the bringer of freedom for all the people under the Ancien-Regimes, or a full of ambitions tyrant? Whatever the answer is, it is clear that only on the battlefield Europe’s destiny will be defined.
