Armored Brigade Dev Diary #1 - Artificial Intelligence

Armored Brigade Dev Diary #1 - Artificial Intelligence

Posted: Monday, July 16, 2018 by Daniele Meneghini

The Armored Brigade artificial intelligence (AI) is fully dynamic, which means that it can handle any scenario within the game parameters, without a need for any scripting from the scenario designer. This approach has been the basic foundation of the game. I've always found the procedurally generated game content fascinating, and that can be seen in the design philosophy of Armored Brigade.

In Armored Brigade, there's an undefined number of maps, units, environmental conditions, and so on. The system must build a readable representation, process the input and then produce output that creates a credible impression of intelligence that behaves in a realistic, unpredictable and challenging manner. That's quite a challenge indeed. A "chess AI", where you have a finite number of possible states, is out of the question.

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Orks units preview

Heavily-muscled, aggressive, eight-foot-tall fungal thugs with a love of warfare, the Orks were a spacefaring peril long before the human Imperium entered the galactic scene. Spread evenly across the galaxy, for the most part they are an irritant to any other inhabitants, like lazy, belligerent neighbours. But occasionally, as a swarm of locusts, the scattered tribes and clans form into a Waaagh! – something between a crusade and a riot – and devastate entire sectors until they run out of things to fight and fall instead into internecine warfare.

Aggressors Dev Diary 5 - Home Politics

Aggressors Dev Diary 5 - Home Politics

Posted: Friday, July 6, 2018 by Alberto Casulini

Throughout human history it has been expected that those accepted as leaders or emperors would be responsible for bringing the country wealth, prestige and prosperity.

I have always felt that country management has been quite underrated in many other strategy games. The reason is simple, micro- and macro-management can be quite tedious, repetitive and in a way ruining the “fun”.
But sidelining country management has, in my opinion, also provided less realistic experiences. We accepted the challenge and came up with a few new game concepts that on one hand keep the economic, military, social and cultural decisions in the hands of the player whilst, on the other hand, complementing the robust and logical game mechanics. All whilst bringing in surprising elements that deepen immersion. Country management should be mostly automated and decisions should be either made actively by the player or he should be alerted in special circumstances to reduce the boring and monotonous tasks.

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Necrons units preview

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Necrons units preview

Posted: Wednesday, July 4, 2018 by Alberto Casulini

An eternity ago, the Necrons forsook the frailties of flesh for deathless bodies wrought from cold metal, in their subjugation to the star-gods know as the C’tan. In their new immortal form, they took on the then-masters of the galaxy – the Old Ones – and in aeons-long battle they defeated them. In their desperation, the Old Ones seeded the galaxy with psychic races, thus awakening the horrors of the warp, and the Necrons – weakened by a simultaneous battle of liberation from the C’tan – retreated to their homeworlds. 

There, falling into hibernation, they slumbered for untold time. As other races were born and drove themselves to extinction, they lay deep and undisturbed in multitudinous worlds, tended and defended in their not-sleep by their monstrous Canoptek automata.

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Space Marines units preview

Posted: Friday, June 29, 2018 by Alberto Casulini

With bolters blazing, the Battle-Brothers of the Adeptus Astartes crush the foes of the Imperium wherever they may be found. Each Space Marine is an elite genetically-engineered super-soldier, a mighty and fearless hero worth a hundred lesser men.

Each Space Marine is recruited into a thousand-man Chapter, before they are extensively modified, with nineteen extra organs and the crucial Chapter gene-seed. From the numerous Ultramarines and mysterious Dark Angels to the fierce Space Wolves and tormented Blood Angels, each chapter has its own traditions and style of combat.

Armed with the finest weapons the Imperium can provide, clad in suits of intimidating power armour and borne to war aboard swift and deadly fighting vehicles, they are the Imperium’s ultimate weapon. Though relatively few in number, it is the Adeptus Astartes who represents Humanity’s best hope for survival – for they are the greatest warriors the galaxy has ever known.

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Astra Militarum units preview

Posted: Tuesday, June 26, 2018 by Alberto Casulini

The Astra Militarum, commonly known as the Imperial Guard, is the primary fighting force of the Imperium of Man. Across a galaxy of a hundred billion stars, there must be billions of Guardsmen at least – yet even the Departmento Munitorum on Terra, which oversees this immense force, has no real idea of how many troops there are at any one time. A safe estimate is to say that there are millions of regiments.

In Warhammer 40,000: Gladius the Astra Militarum is one of the four factions you can play as. Its strengths are, of course, its huge numbers, its mighty vehicles and its fortifications.

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.
