New Wargame With A Classic Style Covers Alexander the Greats Conquests

Matrix Games is pleased to announce that it has secured the rights to publish Koios Works (www.koiosworks.com) innovative new wargame, Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great, which is scheduled to be previewed next week at Origins 2004 this week (http://www.originsgames.com).

Kevin Albright, President of Koios Works commented, After discussions with several publishers, we decided on Matrix Games based on their familiarity with the strategy and wargaming market and their focus on quality gameplay combined with high production values. Weve aimed very high with Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great and we plan to hit the mark.

Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great is a visually breath-taking entertainment title placing the player in the role of Alexander the Great during his conquest of the known world.

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
