Aggressors Testers Diary - Modding

Aggressors Testers Diary - Modding

Posted: Friday, June 15, 2018 by Alberto Casulini

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.

Tigers on the Hunt second DLC announced! Welcome to Normandy!

Posted: Monday, June 11, 2018 by Daniele Meneghini

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.

Aggressors Dev Diary 3 - Diplomacy

Aggressors Dev Diary 3 - Diplomacy

Posted: Friday, June 8, 2018 by Alberto Casulini

Diplomacy makes strategy games feel alive. No matter how many barbarian hordes invade your borders nor how cunning their attacks are, without a leader who you can talk with to negotiate a potential ceasefire the enemy simply does not feel real.

We wanted to make Aggressors feel realistic, so we tried to bring some "life" into diplomacy. Interactions with an AI cannot replace the nuances of a communication between two human players, but if you give the AI a number of tools that it can use whilst following its own goals then the interaction suddenly feels much more real.

Posted: Thursday, June 7, 2018 by Daniele Meneghini

For not by numbers of men, nor by measure of body, but by valor of soul is war to be decided – Procopius

The Western Roman Empire might have fallen, but the fight for its legacy is far from over. In its old provinces, Romano-Barbaric kingdoms are established and, even if political fragile, their ambitions are well known. While the Ostrogoths managed to unite in a single Kingdom Italy and the Balkans, the Vandals have claimed North Africa and have become a major naval threat to Byzantium, the direct heirs of the Eastern Roman Empire.

Under the command of valiant generals such as Belisarius and Narses, the Byzantines will fight tooth and nail to prove to anyone on Earth that the Imperium of Rome is still a force to be reckoned with, and can perhaps be restored to its former glory.

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock - Dev Diary #7 'The Endurance Update'

Posted: Monday, May 28, 2018 by Alberto Casulini

“We call it nondestructive testing. It’s a suite of processes to rigorously test a mechanical system for damage or flaws. The entire purpose is to find potential faults without causing any permanent damage to the system.” Piotr Magnus looked up from his lectern, and was met with dozens of faces; serious, sleepless. Someone near the back coughed. “A lot of the tests use processes that would otherwise be hazardous to a person - electrical currents, radiation, liquid submersion - but aren’t supposed to cause any material damage to the machine.”

Aggressors Dev Diary 2 - Military Command

Aggressors Dev Diary 2 - Military Command

Posted: Friday, May 25, 2018 by Daniele Meneghini

I am a huge fan of 4X strategy games. I love the whole idea behind it: you start as a small nation which slowly gains the respect of others, you see your economy grow, you advance in technology, build an army… You watch your empire rise and you develop an attachment to your own people. You care about them. If your country is invaded you literally feel betrayed and in danger because you know your people suffer. 

On the other hand, I have always liked tactical games like Panzer General where you don't command small units but have a full control of your army. You are in charge of all the important aspects of a military campaign from a macro level.

Being an emperor and a general at the same time - that was what I wanted to achieve when I started the development of Aggressors. In my mind, Aggressors should be a simulation of a real military campaign with the need to balance realistic aspects like supply management, loyalty, army morale, soldiers a
