Decisive Campaigns: Barbarossa Overview - Part 1

Posted: Tuesday, April 12, 2016 by Daniele Meneghini

Decisive Campaigns: Barbarossa is coming to Steam very soon. This award-winning wargame, considered as one of the best games around by both players and press, can appear very intimidating to newcomers. It’s not really something you would consider as an introductory game for novices.

We have asked YouTuber and avid tactical wargamer Idjester to try and explain the game from the point of view of someone who never got to face a complex operational wargame.

Sengoku Jidai: Shadow of the Shogun Teaser revealed & release date announced!

Posted: Friday, April 08, 2016 by Alberto Casulini

Japan, in the second half of the 16th century.  

For two hundred years the central power of the Ashikaga Shogunate has been progressively eroded by rebellious local daimyo. Decades of struggles among the warlords have divided the country and now they verge upon open war.

With the succession to the shogunate in doubt and a nation in economic distress, it is a time of reckoning for the noble families and their retainers, the Samurai.

This is the time of great and ambitious lords, a time of honour and betrayal. This is the time of the nation at war.

This is the Sengoku Jidai!

“ [The] Barbarossa’s most invigorating innovation [is] a nervous stroll through the minefield that was a WW2 general’s in tray. Tramping through the political swamp the developers have so skilfully evoked with his plethora of history-rich, humour-flecked decision dialogues, provides a wonderful sense of what it must have been like to sit in the turret of the German war machine in 1941” – Rock Paper Shotgun

"Operation Barbarossa in its present state represents a highlight in the progress of serious computer war gaming" - Wargamer

“You need to play this game”- Three Moves Ahead

Awarded “Overall Digital Game of the Year and Digital Wargame of the Yearby the Groghead’s Readers, Decisive Campaigns: Barbarossa employs an innovative gameplay mechanic, in which political affiliations and personal relations between you and your superiors (and subordinates) have a strong impact during the military operations!

Panzer Corps: US Corps has been announced! Join the Beta now!

Despite the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbour, Europe had been considered the main front by the United States from the beginning of the war. Here, Great Britain is increasingly isolated and the Soviet Union has been driven back, losing millions of men and tanks in the effort to gain time.

Germany is close to winning the War, and the Wehrmacht is the arbiter in the Old Continent. Only the opening of a new front could give a chance to the Allies to reverse the tide!

Today Flashback Games, is proud to announce a new exciting chapter in the series, with more content than ever!

Victory & Glory: Napoleon  Interview with the Game Designer!

Victory & Glory: Napoleon Interview with the Game Designer!

Posted: Wednesday, March 09, 2016 by Daniele Meneghini

Today we have the pleasure of interviewing Glenn Drover, game designer of the upcoming game Victory and Glory: Napoleon!

Glenn Drover is a well known name in the world of boardgaming, having created the boardgame adaptations of some world famous strategy games such as Age of Empires III and Age of Mythology. 
 
Victory and Glory: Napoleon will be released on March, 17th! 
 
Q: What is, in your experience, the main challenge a game designer has to deal with a new project?
 

A: The main pitfall is falling in love with your original design and ideas. At the beginning of a project, a designer is usually extremely excited about the new game, and thinks that they know how it should work. Once the reality of the first playtest kicks in, the designer’s assumptions are usually sorely tested, and many issues appear. A good designer will remain flexible enough to immediately throw out what is not working and make the necessary changes. If they are too in love with their original idea, they may not be open to that and their design can become stuck and never progress.
