Can't wait to hear from you guys!

Hi All,

I would like to introduce you to our upcoming iPhone game, Generals. Generals is a tribute to the classic turn-based world conquest board game we all know and love. From a very young age we have been hooked on these types of games and were surprised when we couldn't find a multiplayer version on the App Store.

Well, fast forward almost 6 months and we are in the final stages of development and ready to reveal our creation to the world!


Some of our game features are:
  • Refined graphics and intuitive game play providing for an awesome strategy gaming experience!
  • Take on the world! Play online against friends and enemies over Wi-Fi & 3G.
  • Pass-N-Play with up to 5 players or against your device across four levels of difficulty.
  • Tried-and-true turn based strategy implementation at its best!
  • Enjoy easy access to comprehensive in-game help and tutorial videos.

We have put a lot of love into Generals and hope you will all enjoy it. A lot of blood, sweat, and polish has gone into this game. For example, we have automatic rejoining in multiplayer games. Let's say you're playing an online game and you get a phone call. If you answer it, the app will exit but when you re-open the app after your phone call and login to our servers you will be presented with a prompt asking you to rejoin your game. The server is smart enough to just skip over you while you're gone. This is just the tip of the feature iceberg... .

We are hoping to release Generals in the coming weeks and will very soon be looking for beta testers. If you are interested, keep your eyes on this thread as we will post updates here or look us up:

Looks good, but is the same as Lux/Risk.

Hi hhhh,

Generals shares a lot of similarities with Lux but we've taken it several steps further. Both the pre-game interface and actual game interaction are nicer IMO. Most importantly, we have multiplayer. Playing against humans is a lot more enjoyable than playing against a computer AI

Thanks for the feedback DarkeMage!

Were polishing the Generals build today and if all goes well we should announce beta invitations imminently.

We also had a an email question about an iPad version. We plan to make a universal binary for Generals so that it will work across both the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Buy once, play everywhere!

How many maps are there? One thing that makes Lux Delux a lot of fun are the maps.

@alectwin

I'll see it about squeezing in Italy for you . Definitely will be in the iPad version!

@Frog

We're going to debut with 1 map but we have built the architecture so that adding maps is super easy. We also plan on introducing multiple game modes for multiplayer, some of which, IMO, are better than the classic mode.


BTW PocketGamer.co.uk did a short article on our game! Check it out at http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhon...ws.asp?c=19873
