  • Good turn based on the way

    Good one coming. Time of Fury from Slitherine. Much better version of Time of Wrath.

    Strategic level WWII in Europe. Simple and playable yet very detailed.

    It should have a real honest to goodness War for the Atlantic and the ability to fight a real meaningful Battle of Britain on a strategic level.

    Play testing now. I'm excited.

    Check it out. Google time of fury.

        There is a reason for this. WWII is a unique time. A global war, a massive amount of technical advancement in a short time, several power players and lots of nations caught in the middle. Post WWII war changed dramatically, due to nukes and satellites.

        This does not mean the other eras aren't potentially good choices for a GS game, but the WWII era offers the most possible options.

          Progress is being made. I think the land war is done. Now the air war and naval component needs tweeking. They are almost there. So close.

          A good naval game where you can fight the Battle of the Atlantic or the Med and a real air component that lets you fight the Battle of Britain or the bombing of Germany on a strategic level will be a first.

          This one could easily be a classic.

              I'm a gaming addict. If it's good, I'll bite.

                I liked ToW and will probably be picking this up AFTER some posts here and other places let me know what the game is really like. If it is ToW and SoP kind of molded together into one game covering Europe then I'm in.

                  As some of you may know I've developed an alternative history universe based on a fictious WWIII starting in May 1946.

                  This game has a editor and I will be able to recreate my scenario fairly easy.

                  Now how cool is that?

                  What this means for all of you is that you can play out all kinds of "what ifs" and recreate your own alternate histories.

                    Hah!..yes, sarcasm can get lost when read instead of heard. Yes, I was being sarcastic. I dont begrudge the PC gaming industry for producing WW2 games because they appeal to a larger audience than- lets say- the wars of German Unification. That said its still frustrating that I can game WWII six ways to Sunday, but I cant get games that model 16th-19th centruy warfare absent some Civil War games. There are a few sure, but very few. I look at what Norbsoft did with "Gettysburg: Scourge of war" and ask..great, now can I get one on the battles of the 30 years war? or the Franco Prussian war?

                    Thank God AGEOD has tackled a few....like the 7 years war. I mean seriously, huge armies fighting across central Europe for 7 years and I can only get one operational game and one craptastic tactical game from Matrix? arrghhhhh.

                      I think the latest version I'm testing is going gold soon. It's very good. I'm focusing in on the air war and the naval game.

                      Imagine being able to play out the Battle for the Atlantic and the Battle of Britain on a strategic scale or in the case of the Battle for the Atlantic on any scale.

                      Check it out on the Matrix forums.

                        From what they tell me we are testing the release version now. It looks very good with a great multi-player dedicated server.

                        Example: Joe could play Britain and France, and Herman the Germans with the computer playing all the other countries.

                        The graphics are easiy modified and if it's any indication from what happened in Time of Wrath there are some really tallented folks who will do some great things.

                        They are working on a game editor and from what I've seen it will be easy to modify every unit and even the map! So with a little work you could possibly do the 30 years war as someone suggested would be nice.

                          Why? If the game is done with a basis of reality both of those battles are foregone conclusions. It may not have looked like it to the participants of the time, but now with hindsight and 50+ years of research and analysis we know that Germany never had a chance in either battle.

                            Many historians disagree and it is worth exploring as is every historical conflict. By your logic there is no reason what so ever for any historical simulation. It's all pre-ordained by statistics. Moral, leadership, training, planning and logistics, weather etc. do not have to be considered if we take your slant on things. Is there no room for random events, freak occurrences, luck?

                            I personally think there is.

                            How would the Brits have fared without the gift of the US destroyers? What if the they had not produced the escort/jeep carrier and close The Gap? What if, like Japan, they never recognized the danger until it was too late? Would the home fleet be invincible to the Luftwaffe without any air support? How would the British bombing effort have gone if they lost control over their own airspace? Why did Churchill fear the U-boat threat more than any other? Etc.

                              It's here. It's ready to download at Matrix Games. It's looking good and I'm involved in 2 PBEM games now. They have their own server for the multiplayer games.
