Hi all!

As promised we are releasing the 1.0.17 update today. It is quite a big patch, containing (among other things) a much enhanced AI and new difficulty levels!

We are also releasing an option for you to download and install player-made scenarios directly from the game! Right now we have five new scenarios available for free – they were made during the editor contest we ran some time ago. Try them, they are amazing! We are looking forward to setting up a system for all of you to send us your scenarios, so be on the lookout for that. We hope to have plenty of extra scenarios available in the near future! And as an extra, Agrippa Maxentius will be playing Rippa's Ruse, one of the new maps, tomorrow, live on our Twitch channel at 3 pm UTC! Don't miss the (Ag)Rippa's Ruse! 

You can download the update from the Members Area.

Empires Apart Dev Diary - The goal of the game

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

In our previous dev diaries we focused on the different available game modes, as well as the design behind the UI. Today we are going to cover a number of different subjects, but all have something in common: why we decided to make Empires Apart.

It’s no secret that we drew heavy inspiration from games that marked our childhood: Age of Empires, Empire Earth, and others. We wanted to bring back that feeling, the familiar atmosphere of games we loved, but also add our own touch, as well as modernize the formula, bring it to 2018’s standards. Empires Apart is, basically, the game we wanted to play.


Desert War Mechanicics .Shock Explained

Tuesday, March 13, 2018


“Everyone was talking and chatting, when slowly came into sight the first tank I ever saw.  Not a monster but a very graceful machine with beautiful lines….  Here was the missing tool of penetration, the answer to the dominance on the battlefield of small-arms fire.”—J.F.C. Fuller

Matrix Games/Slitherine’s upcoming release of Brian Kelly’s Desert War 1940-42 uses a simple game mechanic often found in WWII board games.  It gives tank units a “special place” in the player’s toolbox—a positive shift to the combat force ratio if attacking, and the opposite when defending.  Coming up short of attack factors?  No problem!  Throw in some tanks.  A 1 to 1 attack can become a 2 to 1, 3 to 1, 4 to 1, etc.  In Desert War 1940
