Hello everyone,

My name's Joe, I'm the new communications director here at HoodedHorse. Some of you may remember me as former editor of Wargamer.com "WargamerJoe" - well, I'm back! Craig told me about the dedicated HH area here so I thought I'd return and set-up shop, act as a point of contact for the community here.

Feel free to ping me with any questions you like about Hooded Horse and our games, and I'll try and fill out the forums a bit better as well. Recent developments you may or may note be aware of:

  • Terra Invicta, our sci-fi grand strategy game from the creators of XCOM's The Long War mods, has released into Early Access
  • Recently we signed two new games: Heart of the Machine, from the developer of AI Wars 2, and Xenonauts 2
  • We recently ran a Steam event called TactiCon that as far as I can tell was a roaring success, and there were some great panels that went on during the show from people like Soren Johnson and other really cool strategy developers

It's good to be back, and I look forward to chatting to you all!

HH has really got some Hella Hot games on the way!  :D  <:-)  :notworthy:
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

Hello Joe!

A War of a Madman's Making - a text-based war planning and political survival RPG

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.

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.
