Last week we published Wargamer.com stalwart Matthew Flanigan’s video of the first part of his play through of one of the scenarios from Ageod’s recently released Breaking The Deadlock expansion to their To End All Wars WW1 mega-game. This week the war continues to rage in the Balkans and, as the title suggests, Belgrade is in a spot of bother.
So, following last week’s news item which included mention of a beta programme for an “unannounced game of 3D tactical space combat”, Slitherine have finally come clean about the proper name of the game - Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy. Additionally further details about the game have now been published, so read on to find out more and how to join the beta programme.
Don’t worry! I’m not going all Elmer Fudd on you here! It’s just that, lately, I’ve been pondering the proposition of perfection. Despite my ongoing efforts to convince my wife of my inherent infallibility, it doesn’t transpire terribly often in this existence and those infrequent flawless phenomena really do stand out.
1965, more or less half way through the Vietnam War, was also the year that Johan, the man behind developer Every Single Soldier, was born and, by coincidence, your editor. Now, 50 years on, Johan has produced a game about the conflict which, interestingly, focus’ on the “hearts and minds” counter-insurgency nature of the war – something a bit different for a wargame.

In September 2013 we conducted an interview with Studio Nyx about their crowdfunding campaign for a conversion of the Legions of Steel boardgame into an iPad game – you can read that here.

Instead of forging ahead on their own Studio Nyx teamed up with industry heavyweight Slitherine who stepped in to become the publishers of the game. After significant development time it now looks as though the game will soon be with us.
A typical start to the week by catching up the things you missed during the last one. In this case the release of Arnhem: Airborne Assault on iPad and Android tablets. This is a turn based hex game about, obviously, Operation Market Garden in 1944 focusing on the most famous part the fighting for Pegasus Bridge.
It’s only a couple of days since Ageod released their first DLC for their World War 1 strategic uber-title, To End All Wars, the cunningly named To End All Wars: Breaking the Deadlock. Even though it is so new this hasn’t stopped Wargamer.com stalwart Matthew Flanigan from diving straight into the new scenarios and producing a video of how is getting along. We’d previously commented that the base game where you play the whole war could be a bit intimidating, so let’s see what Matthew thinks about this issue and others as he plays the new release.
Seems to be the season for space games – not that we’re complaining here at wargamer.com – and here is an announcement about StarDrive 2 a turn based 4x game which is to appear on Steam in the near future.
