So far we have not shown the game to outsiders of the development team, except in the official updates like these dev blogs. But when a renown strategy game designer Philippe Thibaut asks to have a look at the game… Well, you show the game!

Been following this for a while now....can't remember the last time I was this excited about a new game.

Yeah, think this one could rocket fuel reignite my interest in US Civil War.

Wow!  Have I seen this before?   I don't think so.  Man alive this game looks absolutely fantastic.

I don't throw out "day 1 purchase" lightly, but this certainly feels like that kind of game.

And it looks like it's coming out much sooner than I expected -- "mid-late summer"

I'm not a Civil War buff, but this looks absolutely fantastic.  EDIT -- I guess I channeled Toonces, because I wrote that and then saw he had written pretty much the exact same thing !

I really can't wait for this game.  I noticed Philippe has quite the nice website with a lot of interesting products.  Maybe I can find something there to keep me busy until Grand Tactician comes out!

Beta Battle Game Play: Gettysburg

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

Beta Battle Game Play: Gettysburg



Watched it all. Really impressive stuff.

What is obvious is that this is no clickfest.....the battle has time to develop naturally and with lots of time to think even without using the pause key (which for me given my aversion to RTS battles is quite something !)

As a battle simulator is is amazing but when you consider that this system, as well as being able to be used to replay individual stand alone engagements is also integrated into a whole ACW strategic game the scale is mind blowing.

I've no real interest in the ACW, but I might get this just because of the game design.

I've asked about this directly, but it's worth noting that at the time I write this the price is 39.99 for everyone, regardless of regional currency differences.

39.99 USD is actually ~34 EUR, so us Europeans will technically be paying more for the game unless they decide to adjust their pricing.
