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).
Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great is a turn-based, simultaneous-play wargame with a classic feel and a reaction system to allow mid-turn adjustments to strategy. Aside from covering the most famous conqueror in all of history, Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great also presents the wargamer with a unique miniatures-oriented feel with graphics of hand-drawn, individually adorned soldiers.

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. Guide Alexander through his grand campaign from inheriting his fathers mantle at the battle of Thebes to his conquest of Darius III and the Persian Empire and last great battle at the Hydaspes. The battlefields of Alexanders campaigns are illustrated in beautiful 3-D views with historically accurate battle scenarios and troop placements. The game also provides a number of cutscenes that provide an entertaining, educational, non-fiction storyline as the campaign unfolds.
