Convoy

Game News - posted by Trash on Tue 4 November 2014, 14:57:44

Tags: Convoy; Kickstarter

Never thought I'd see the legacy of Roadwar 2000 and Autoduel continued but here it seemingly is. Convoy is marketed as FTL meets Mad Max and has a lot of the hallmarks of the earlier classics. As a huge Roadwar fan I must say that the prospect of once again navigating a convoy across a dangerous postapocalyptic wasteland while scrounging for supplies and upgrades is a tantalising one. Them not naming those old classics on the other hand is rather disappointing to me. Perhaps I'm just getting old. Check out their Kickstarter if you're interested.

Alea Jacta Est sneaks up on Steam

Tags: AGEOD; Alea Jacta Est; Slitherine

Back in 2012 we thought that Alea Jacta Est was a pretty groovy ancient era wargame. Well, I'm happy to say it still is and apparantly it's suddenly scheduled to be released on our favorite porn deletion service Steam. No idea what price range or if they'll put up all the dlc scenarios and expansions as extra dlc. And what about achievements. Can't have no achievements, now can we? Bit of a surprise this, really. Then again, more quality wargames on Steam is not a bad thing.

Finally a worthy follow up for King of Dragon Pass?

Game News - posted by Trash on Mon 3 November 2014, 12:13:39

Tags: A-Sharp; King of Dragon Pass; Six Ages

It's no secret that many here hold a very special place for King of Dragon Pass. Therefore I'm really happy to tell you that the original team has started work on a spiritual successor named Six Ages. It's set in the same world and will once again focus on mixing storytelling, strategy, roleplaying and decision making. Keep an eye on their dev blog and twitter for more info.

Not really clear if they're going to work on a pc or mobile only version. We'll see. If a pc version is planned I sincerely hope they'll also port the improved and updated mobile version of King of Dragon Pass to it.

Battle Brothers releases the greenskins

Game News - posted by Trash on Mon 3 November 2014, 11:56:55

Tags: Battle Brothers

The lovely looking medieval fantasy mercenary company sim Battle Brothers has divulged a new faction for you to slaughter or get slaughtered by. The Orcish hordes make their appearance and look like neat adversaries. A later dev blog also has some info about a new UI, weapons and more Orc stuff. Here, have a trailer.



Really looking forward to this one. The idea of running a mercenary company in a fantasy world is criminally neglected in pc gaming. Have a look at the demo if you want a taste of it. Also do check out this thread on our forums. Lots of information from the devs themselves.
