    Vietnam65 is out now on PC and iPad!

    Thursday, March 05, 2015

    "You will kill ten of us, we will kill one of you, but in the end, you will tire of it first” (Ho Chi Minh – President of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam 1945-69)

    Fifty years ago Operation Rolling Thunder was launched. Supported by dozens of US fighter-bombers, this massive bombardment campaign aimed to persuade North Vietnam to cease its assistance to communist insurgents in South Vietnam and to destroy key military targets. Soon after ground units were also deployed and the US was fully involved in this iconic Cold War conflict!

    But in Vietnam, firepower and technology only get you so far. Thanks to their knowledge of the terrain, close relationship with the local population and their mastery of guerrilla tactics, the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese Army regulars proved to be a dangerous and elusive enemy

    As a result, victory is not determined by simply eliminating the enemy, but rather by winning the Hearts and Minds of the local population, thereby gaining their support to crush the insurgency.

    In Vietnam’65, a new strategy game releasing today on PC and iPad, players will experience the true essence of this war. Developer Every Single Soldier has focused on providing a realistic and credible Counter-Insurgency model.

    Star Hammer Beta!

    Wednesday, March 04, 2015

    War Was Inevitable

    Today we are excited to announce the development of a new 3D tactical space battles game called Star Hammer : The Vanguard Prophecy. Developer Black Lab Games is focused on designing a fascinating sci-fi game in which players will not only step into the shoes of a fleet commander – carefully selecting their spaceships and crew members – but also be at the spearhead of their squadron, maneuvering their capital ships like a hard-boiled captain!

    The players will have to face a ferocious alien race - the Nautilid - which threat is as varied as it is innumerable and the game offers plenty of tactical situations in which players will have to take painful decisions. To succeed, players will need to be quick-learners to identify the weaknesses of the enemy and adopt an offensive behavior only when a clear breach appears.

    Machines are taking control! Legions of Steel announced!

    Monday, March 02, 2015

    The real question is not whether machines think but whether men do.” (B. F. Skinner– American Psychologist)

    Directly inspired from the board game of the same name, Legions of Steel is a fast-paced and thrilling tactical game. Squads of machines and humans fight hard in the inhospitable undergrounds of the production facilities. With the one shot, one kill philosophy adopted by the developers, every move, line of sight, and action point becomes a resource of strategic importance.

    Today we are happy to announce that the game will be available in May 2015 on both PC and iPad! Initially announced for late 2014, developer Studio Nyx decided to extend the development period in order to provide more content into the game, and especially nerve-racking multiplayer modes that should seduce fans of competitive and intense matches!

    “The path to paradise begins in hell(Dante Alighieri – Italian poet)

    The angelic and peaceful kingdom of Gilrand is in great danger. Led by Lord Devil in person, merciless demons are raiding the defenseless Human world.
