Therefore,

first of all, the game is not historical,
Second, the game is basic,
thirdly, criticism is banned,

Hooray, I can do a wargame!

If wargame code development was easy, then anyone could do it.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; ... who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.
~ Theodore Roosevelt

Hmm, well in exchanging thoughts with the developer, I think I can fairly state, this game isn't meant to be taken seriously. The developer isn't. There's no reason you should.

I think he has ported a worthless mobile game to Steam and PC with the idea he can actually make money off of us.

I'm not going to cry about the 8 bucks.

But his design philosophy is the least effort possible, is the method to be chosen. I'd be shocked if this will ever see an update. That would take effort.
I can only hope this will be his last attempt at making 'wargames'.
Fool me once eh...

This guy is soooo not like Valentin, the French new comer developer who is busting his butt to make his game Hex of Steel, all it can be.

He's no Yobowargames or Shenandoah Studios who try to keep it simple. Because they at least try to make them real.

Bunnysays don't encourage this developer. Maybe he will get the message.


So I was right. I've seen many of these type of "wargames" pop up on Steam and I can spot them a mile off.

Mobile trash.

BTW if you have played less than two hours and within 14 days of you purchasing a game on Steam then you can request a refund and if you meet this criteria the refund will always be granted.

So our poster, "IslandInland," was most correct after all. We should have known, as our chap is an Englishman!

Seriously, it is important to gauge a developer's attitude; as for some of us, our purchases often seem like a charitable contribution at the time.

And yes, Valentin and his Hexwar game is an excellent example. Until I am proved wrong, he has updated his game almost every day, which I find to be a record, in my lengthy experience.

And that is honestly the primary reason I purchased WitE2 - because of the huge amount of updates for WitE1, and the hundreds of pages documenting them.





I watched a video of this "game" and saw something like "100,000 Americans, Germans and Englishmen" and knew immediately it was trash.

There were Englishmen there but there were also Scots, Welsh, Irish, Canadians, etc involved.
