1.2 is available

Hi,

The 1.2 update is available in the AppStore, containing one fix. It turned out that in the Fredericksburg battle an older, not used aynomore, win hex was used. This has been corrected to the red colored hex shown in the win objectives screen.

New Settings, Instructions and Main Menu Style question

Hi,

We want to ask you which font you would prefer to be used in the main menu, settings and instructions screens. Which will be used in the upcoming 1.3 version. In this release we will disband off the flash/cartoon style drawings and provide something which suits the in game graphics better.

One font is an 8bit based font, the other a true type font called Georgia.
Please share us your preferred font.

The font on the left with the white outline seems to be easier to read.

Hi,

Here is a latest version of the Settings screen using only the Georgia font.
Looking the best so far. Both Main menu, Settings screen and Instructions screens will get updated to reflect the style of the Settings screen example attached to this post. Further all in game messages will use this much clearer font. I hope you like it. Feedback appreciated.

Further we will update you soon on the roadmap of our game and share what will be included in the 1.3, 2.0, 2.1 and 3.0 version. One hint I can already give now, coming with the 2.0 version we will raise the price to cover cost for all additional features and battles, which we will include in the 2.0 version. Of course customers who have bough our game prior to the 2.0 release will get everything at no additional cost
