Back to News Listing The Spanish Civil War relives in Espana 1936

Posted: Wednesday, October 02, 2013 by Filippo Chianetta

Type: Press Release

 

The Spanish Civil War is one of the most important, yet often forgotten, conflicts of the 20th century. When the Republicans and the Nationalists started the conflict in 1936 Europe was on the verge of collapsing into the worst war it had ever faced. Throughout the three years of hostilities the Iberian peninsula lived through a time of political and social turmoil. 

Developed by Ageod (www.ageod.co.uk) España 1936 features the well-know AGE game engine with a turn-based WEGO system, and covers the entire Spanish Civil War from 1936-1939. The player will find more than 200 regions complete with cities, roads, weapons factories, weather types, factions and sub-factions. The game includes a tutorial, a Grand Campaign covering the whole conflict plus the Fall of the North scenario, a host of historical leaders, units and events.

We are excited to bring this game to market”, said Philippe Thibault, Director of Ageod. “It is not often that players are given the opportunity to be confronted with such a different and original setting. Our mission is to continue to develop our community of fans by offering new opportunities in gameplay, yet trying to open up to new areas of interest”.

España 1936 is the result of deep and detailed research on the history of Spain, and is developed by Spanish developers to provide a strategy game which really focuses on the key issues of this conflict.

Pike & Shot is now available for iPad!

Thursday, January 29, 2015

"We may employ artifice to deceive a rival, anything against our enemies.” (Cardinal Richelieu – French Statesman)

Back in October, Pike & Shot grabbed the attention of both specialized press and fans of wargames due to its streamlined game mechanics and its rich, yet rarely used historical background. From a strategic point of view, the period presents a brilliant evolution of military units and approaches thanks to the development of new technologies. Integrating firearms and artillery into an army is not an easy task, and only the most flexible commanders will be able to combine them perfectly!

To End All Wars gets its first expansion!

Wednesday, January 28, 2015

So long as the opposing forces are at the outset approximately equal in numbers and moral and there are no flanks to turn, a long struggle for supremacy is inevitable” (General Sir Douglas Haig - British commander)

Praised for its historical accuracy and its capacity to properly cover a huge conflict that involved thousands of men and units, Ageod’s WW1 wargame, To End All Wars, amazed history buffs last summer. However, the huge scale of the Grand Campaign was demanding a lot of time and a deep involvement from the players. So the developers went back to the WW1 battlefields and selected a list of smaller scenarios able to not only offer an original approach of the war, but also to provide true tactical operational challenges to their fans!
