Latest news from War & Peace

Welcome to our seventh newsletter!

The Digital Game

Please note that the PC version of War & Peace has been renamed Napoleon's Eagles (see here).

The digital development continues, with mostly bug fixes, UI improvements and some new features added. Most of the last month tasks were targeted at the mobile versions of the game, iOS (now available on Appstore) and Android (still under development and looking for testers, see the news below).

Another improvement was the addition of the Spanish language, done by our friend Jesús Delgado, a seasoned and expert wargamer from Spain.

The Boardgame Reprint

Also, Mark and our team have discussed at length about it and we are also moving forward. We got an experienced senior editor (worked for GMT) onboard to undertake the new manual proofreading. Map is ready, box is underway, and we are just missing someone with a good experience with Illustrator to redo the numerous countersheets (which is really a hell of a job). We have received a good quote from a manufacturer and we should be able to place a firm order by early summer. A specific "Call to Arms" actions will be made in May or June, to ask contributors to pay for the final cost of their pre-orders, so that we can officially place the order. Note that, after that date, pre-orders will remain possible, but at full price.

For now, the game will only be made in English language. If all goes well, we can start production more or less at the same time as the new boardgame Small Wars: Mohicans (see below). More news soon.

Small Wars Mohicans' Kickstarter

On March 21st, we are launching a Kickstarter campaign for a new project which will be both a video game (console and PC) anda boardgame. This way we hope to satisfy the different groups of gamers, with a product that will play the same way on both medias.
Register yourself on Kickstarter and add you on this page to receive warning when the campaign starts. You can also see more information on the game's website, here: www.smallwars-game.com.

Note that this game system has been designed to work most on petty wars and, among the subjects it could deal with, the guerrilla during the Peninsula War (1808-1814) could be considered.

Stay tuned! Vive l'Empereur!
