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!
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

Beta Battle Game Play: Gettysburg

Quote from: Silent Disapproval Robot
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.

If yer lookin' for the general, I know where he is...

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.

My thought exactly.
