Voici à l’occasion de la sortie aujourd’hui de ce jeu de Shenandoah Studios un nouveau trailer présentant ce projet initialement financé avec succès via Kickstarter en août 2013, mais dont le développement avait ensuite pris un très important retard. La raison étant qu’une grande partie du programme a dû être réécrite.
Quoiqu’il en soit le jeu est désormais disponible sur PC, avec en prime un système pour gérer des tournois (inscriptions par ici) et une version pour iOS devrait en théorie toujours arriver par la suite.
Gettysburg: The Tide Turns is out!
The Battle of Gettysburg, fought between the Army of the Potomac and the Army of Northern Virginia, is considered by many the turning point of the American Civil War.
Lasted three days, from July 1st to July 3rd, 1863, the battle saw many epic and tragic moments, culminating in the famous Pickett’s Charge, the desperate frontal assault of the confederates against the unionist defensive lines at Cemetery Ridge.
Today, Shenandoah and Slitherine are very proud to release Gettysburg: The Tide Turns, the brilliant hex-based wargame that will make you relive all the hard tactical choices the Confederates and the Unionists had to take during these long and crucial days of fierce fighting.
But the news is not over! We have just opened the gates for the first Gettysburg: The Tide Turns Tournament!
Take the challenge and defy your human opponents! The tournament will start on Wednesday 19th! Click here to sign up!
IMPORTANT! Only 8 players will be allowed initially, so first come first served! We will add more players in future matches once we will collect enough feedback! Even if we did beta testing during the development stage, “no plan resists contact with the enemy”!
What are you waiting? Grab Gettysburg: The Tide Turns now!
Where were we? Gettysburg: The Tide Turns releases this week!
The development history of Gettysburg: the Tide Turns has been a rollercoaster ride. When Slitherine acquired the rights to complete the game three years ago, our expectations were that we would deliver the game in a matter of months. That turned out to be impossible and we had to rewrite huge chunks of the code from scratch, taking 3 years rather than 3 months.
Gettysburg: The Tide Turns will be available for PC on Thursday (July 13th).
After a long series of challenging events, we are now ready to deliver the PC version of the game. All backers of the original Kickstarter project will soon receive an email detailing all the granted rewards. At this point in time, there are some rewards that are impossible to distribute. Nevertheless, we came up with a plan to reward all backers and hopefully make everyone who decided to invest in this game pleased and positive.
Stay tuned! Check out the official product page and find out more about the game!
