Great Little War Game

Hi guys. We have a turn-based strategy game coming soon for all iOS formats, and our first promo video can be seen here:

The website is on the to-do list, but I wanted to share the vid with you all as soon as possible. The game itself is in late Beta and should be up with Apple in a week or two.

I forgot to mention that we'll be looking for some beta testers with either an iPad or retina phone/pod. (The game will be available on older model phones too, but not 3G as it's too slow to be fun on that)

If anyone is interested, please PM me with your details (and UDID) and I'll get back to you at some point when we have a worthy build. Hopefully some time early next week. Sorry if that's a bit vague, we're doing plenty of our own testing atm and its a bit hectic.

Looking great Rubicon.

Does it play anything like Advanced Wars? If it does I'll pick it up as soon as it is released.

Thanks, Nick.

It sorta does, yes. We're not going to pretend we weren't influenced by it in part, but this is not meant to be a clone either. Hopefully we've brought our own unique flavour to the genre.

If this game does reasonably well at the box office, it's certainly something we can go on extending with too!

Looks stunning, you have done a great job with this! Should sell well.

Wow, the gameplay looks like a lot of fun. Looking at the video, it looks like you've made a turn-based strategy game with unit building design taken from real-time strategy games. Can't wait to play this!

Will this be playable on older IOS devices, like the 2G touch and 3G iphone?

Also, I love all of these great TBS games coming out in 2011

Thanks for the encouraging comments guys, I do hope the game won't disappoint.

Sadly it won't be for 3G or older devices. It does technically run on 3G, but the frame rate we're able to achieve isn't pretty. It rips along nicely on 3GS or above though.

I mean, that looks fantastic.

You should incorporate L.O.S. and "overwatch" mode.

Holy Jesus, that looks absolutely STUNNING! Blimey, that game alone might even convince me to buy an iPad! I'll definitely volunteer for beta testing when the time comes, please! Have an iPhone 4 already, but it would look fantastic on a bigger screen..

Just as an aside, and please tell me to shut up if you like; but have you thought about releasing this on the current gen consoles? Something like this is sadly missing on the 360, and I honestly think it would sell by the bucketload on the Xbox Live Arcade. Any thoughts?

Good Lord, this really does look fantastic! How far down the road with development are you?

Hm, I'm not sure about that. It's not really squad level tactics in the same way as "Hunters:Episode One", this one looks a lot more like Advance Wars/ Cannon Fodder. Some sort of terrain interaction would be good though.

Again, great work chaps! Loving the graphics and animation too, this sounds like a trip to the Isle of Wight to me!
