WWI Strategy Game “Making History: The Great War” to Launch at National World War I Museum
Long-awaited title makes its official debut at historical venue
Newburyport, MA, /PRNewswire-iReach/ —
Developer Muzzy Lane Software is excited to announce the official release of the next game in its Making History series. “Making History: The Great War” will launch on January 29th and be featured at premiere launch event at the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial in Kansas City on Saturday, January 31st. A turn based strategy game of global war set in the volatile period of the early 20th century, The Great War places you in the role of national leader with the power to choose your own path and change the course of history. The historical strategy title challenges players to prevail while maintaining control of their empire amidst global instability, rising nationalism and expanding war. The game has been available to players since launching on Steam’s early access program last spring, and has already garnered almost universal acclaim from those who chose to get the game during the beta period.
“We’ve been very gratified to see the response from the community both on Steam and at our own site”, says Muzzy Lane President Dave McCool, “Even before all the systems were in and we began polishing and balancing the game, we knew it was shaping up to be something special.” He says the National World War I Museum seemed like the ideal place for a launch event. “A key goal of the museum is to make the experiences of the World War I era meaningful and relevant for present and future generations. By giving players the opportunity to step into the role of the leaders of that time and make decisions that affect the outcome, the game is one way to do that.”
Those attending the event will get to play the game and attend a presentation by Muzzy Lane developers.
“We are thrilled to launch Making History: The Great War at the National World War I Museum,” said National World War I Museum President & CEO Dr. Matthew Naylor. “Muzzy Lane Software’s track record of creating compelling, engaging and educational games played by individuals across the world speaks for itself. The timing for the launch of this game coincides with the Centennial of World War I and the Museum’s efforts to provide programs that help people derive lessons and meaning from the Great War and its enduring impact on the world.” Making History: The Great War focuses on unique play experiences for the different great power nations rather than many different starting points. The game also includes a tutorial, a detailed editor so players can create their own scenarios, and gives players access to Muzzy Lane’s unique multiplayer service that encourages historical role-playing.
Muzzy Lane has established itself as one of the premier companies in game-based learning with recent titles like Practice Spanish: School Year Abroad, and Practice Medical Office, both developed in partnership with McGraw-Hill Education. Another title, The Underground Railroad, developed with National Geographic, recently earned an I/ITSEC Student’s Choice Award at the Serious Games Showcase and Challenge.
Making History: The Great War is currently available at a variety of digital stores, including Steam, Gamer’s Gate, and the company’s Making History website, and is playable on Windows, Mac OSX and Linux. The game will remain at the discounted price of $29.99 until launch, at which point it will be available at a cost of $39.99.
