Home of Wargamers 2015 Be part of it!

Posted: Monday, May 18, 2015 by Daniele Meneghini

This year’s Home of Wargamers (#HoW15) is approaching.

The dates are now officially fixed for June 23rd to June 25th and the event is being held at Vittorio Veneto, CastelBrando, a town full of heritage and history between Venezia and Treviso.

The first and most important news is that this year’s event will be solely open to our development partners: we have decided to organize a developer’s conference, rather than a press conference, so that we could really focus on the future of wargaming and strategy gaming.

We will have keynote speeches to talk about game engines, business cases, game play issues, sales channels, price positioning and many other topics to create a true debate about where the wargaming and strategy gaming markets are going, and what we should all do to drive change.

You, as players, are all invited and you will have a chance to take part to the event through live streams, ask anything on Twitter and through the forums. So stay tuned and watch out for further information!

Another Ageod game announced for 2015!

Another Ageod game announced for 2015!

Posted: Wednesday, May 13, 2015 by Daniele Meneghini

Fans of Ageod already knew that a Napoleonic title was coming in 2015. What they may not know though, is that another team is also getting ready to release another deep Ageod wargame this year! This secret project is now mature enough to be shared with you today.

If recent Ageod releases were focused on the 19th and 20th centuries, this new game steps further back in time, exploring the pike and shot era. Indeed, Ageod’s Thirty Years War will cover the series of conflicts in Europe between 1618 and 1648 when religious disputes and lust for power tore the whole continent apart and where you will fight for local and regional domination.

From the Bohemian rebellion to the Swedish intervention led by Gustavus Adolphus, from Denmark to the Palatinate, you can now recreate the Campaigns of Lützen, Nördlingen and Rocroi. In Ageod’s Thirty Years War you will coordinate the movements of several armies, take care of their supplies and fatigue and seek for the best conditions to engage in combat, undertake sieges or retreat to recover if needed; with the ultimate goal of gaining supremacy over Central Europe.
