Game Info

Experience grand strategy across the entire theater of the Eastern Front of World War II; the military conflict that many consider to be the iconic attacker/defender scenario. Command massive armies at your fingertips, in this fully 3D turn-based simulation of one of the largest military campaigns in history.

Protect your lines of supply, try to penetrate the fog of war, and hold out through the winter until reinforcements arrive. Choose from four Operations: sixteen-turn scenarios starting in June of each of the years 1941-1944, and ending in December. For the ultimate challenge you can also take command of the full sweep of the war in the massive 108-turn Campaign, lasting from June 1941 to June 1945.

First: wow! I want! I love Hex grid strategy games! I grew up playing them and can never shake the urge to grab on when a new one comes along, no matter how overdone/overused the WWi/WWii setting may be!

Second: how much?

Third: can we get a fantasy setting version of this sometime down the road?

Apologies for the lack of updates! We've been working hard to both improve the AI and optimise the game.

When going through our QA checks it became apparent that it needed some extra work so we decided to take time extra dev time to make it a much more solid and fun game. We don't currently have an exact release date, but if all goes well it should be within the next 6 to 8 weeks
