SpaceWar 9222
This is a very complex hex based wargame, based in space. you allocate power to ships systems like shields missiles, launch shuttles, self destuct shipss, assign captains, nuclear strikes lay mines etc... You can board ships and all kinds of space stuff.

(new A.I. version is finished and available for free, it replaces the demo version

nice, if only someone wanted to put it on retail :( if they did I would finish the AI(its not to bad now, just need to speed it up and set a few things) . but retailers want their stuff to sell rather than mine I think. thanks wodin its nice to see my game being appreciated

Considered Steam??

At one point I was considering expanding A Wargamers Needful Things to become a publisher for those games to niche etc or unlikely to give enough profit for the bigger publishers. This is the kind of project I'd be looking at.

I looked at steam a long while back, you have to pay $100 dollers to submit a game and it probably would not get greenlit because its niche.

My best option would be selling a game on itch.io , the reason a publisher is needed is the access to graphics / audio / customer base / online shop .. etc... but the publishers want to improve their own projects rather that getting dugin to a new programer, so as it stands I'm probably never getting published :(

See I can supply an online shop, AWNT has a good pool of possible customers also I can offer help with coding and art assets. As I said I have the foundations to build a publishing company that deals with small and or niche games.

I have succeded in fixing the A.I. its not the online demo with hotseat, just adding news about it, but wow its great, may sell the A.I. version, still a little work to do but the main problem is fixed

I cant believe the A.I.it attacks and hunts like a klingon,

I fixed quite a few things from the hotseat demo,

OK Its all Done, I also added a manual, I would like to add some more scenarios. All I have to do now is wait to be published, and access to trekky graphics.

I intend to leave it online for the present.

OK Last Post, I found an error on the armour and anti-armour hit effects, so all prior versions had this error, I added a visible captain orders rating on the energy allocation screen, I have assigned seperate captains per ship on the updated modules, and I have edited the captains images to give variety.

This is def the last update, I have had enough programing, everything looks fine and tested, so get the final version now, I may look for an artest yet though to beef it up
