Panzer Corps: Operation Sea Lion announced!

Panzer Corps: Operation Sea Lion announced!

Panzer Corps: Operation Sea Lion announced!

“[However] a German invasion of England would be a matter of life and death for the British, and they would unhesitatingly commit their naval forces, to the last ship and the last man, into an all-out fight for survival”  Erich Raeder, commander-in-chief of the Kriegsmarine 

Great Britain, the propulsive core of the British Empire, is surrounded. After the fall of Scandinavia and France only a few miles of sea divide the land of Albion from the Reich. It’s only thanks to the Home Fleet and to the Royal Air Force that the Germans are not yet raising their flag on the Big Ben.

But for how long?

Pike and Shot: Campaigns announced!

Posted: Monday, July 20, 2015 by Daniele Meneghini

Never do any enemy a small injury for they are like a snake which is half beaten and it will strike back the first chance it gets.” – Niccolò Machiavelli

Boots are pounding the ground for days. Dirty and grimy soldiers are marching in the ranks with the sergeants trying (mostly in vain) to keep them disciplined.

Too many days have passed since the last plundered town and now food is starting to run out. The men are nervous.

Suddenly a cry from the head of the column. Scouting cavalry have spotted enemy heavy pikemen formations supported by artillery.

It is time to spill some blood!

Pike and Shot: Campaigns is a brand new all-in-one package. It includes the Pike and Shot base game and the Tercio to Salvo expansion, plus 21 new skirmish army lists for the rest of Europe during the period of the Italian Wars (1494-1559) covering the armies of England, Scotland, Denmark, Sweden, German States, Austria, Hungary, Transylvania, the Ottoman Empire, Poland-Lithuania and Russia!

But the main new feature is the strategic map system, implemented to allow you to lead your armies to victory over an entire theatre of operations, taking into account strategic considerations such as terrain, available manpower, supply, attrition, sieges and economic damage.

A wreck of a T- 34 is burning just outside the village. The crew was taken by surprise by the German armoured vanguard. Only few months have passed since the beginning of the invasion of the Motherland and nothing seems able to stand against the powerful advancing panzerdivisionen.

Nevertheless the Germans have underestimated the iron will of Ivan and soon they begin to face more and more resistance. No bunker can be taken until the last defender is dead, every forest can hide an insidious trap, and the Russian steppes seem to be endless.

This will be a long and cruel war.

Today, Gary Grigsby's War in the Eastone of the 50 Best Strategy Games Ever Made according to Rock Paper Shotgun– is starting a new grand campaign with its official release on Steam.

With this new release players have a new chance to dive into this conflict thanks to the accessible gameplay, the perfectly represented chain of command and order of battle and engage the enemy in massive, dramatic campaigns, including intense battles involving thousands of units with realistic and historical terrain, weather, orders of battle, logistics and combat results.

HoW15 - I don't like this, it doesn't work

Posted: Friday, June 12, 2015 by Daniele Meneghini

Imagine catching a flight to a distant city you've never been to. You leave in a rush, no time to read a proper travel guide. Don't know the language either. Don't know the local rules: this trip is going to be a nightmare, for sure. 
 
The airport is your first test. And most airports are pretty good at showing the right information, making good use of symbols, guiding customers through the right paths and making them feel like they are doing the right thing and it's not as hard as they thought just before landing.
