For not by numbers of men, nor by measure of body, but by valor of soul is war to be decided – Procopius

The Western Roman Empire might have fallen, but the fight for its legacy is far from over. In its old provinces, Romano-Barbaric kingdoms are established and, even if political fragile, their ambitions are well known. While the Ostrogoths managed to unite in a single Kingdom Italy and the Balkans, the Vandals have claimed North Africa and have become a major naval threat to Byzantium, the direct heirs of the Eastern Roman Empire.

Under the command of valiant generals such as Belisarius and Narses, the Byzantines will fight tooth and nail to prove to anyone on Earth that the Imperium of Rome is still a force to be reckoned with, and can perhaps be restored to its former glory.

Field of Glory II: Age of Belisarius, the new DLC in the series that is reviving highly historically accurate wargaming, is now available!

This expansion adds 11 new factions, 17 new units, 29 new Army Lists, 4 new historically-based campaigns and more! Eager to see Age of Belisarius in action? Don’t miss our official Twitch Stream at 5 pm CEST! You might win one out of the 5 AoB keys we are offering as Giveaway!

Armored Brigade Dev Diary #2 - Planning the Battle

Monday, July 23, 2018

Juha Kellokoski, the main game designer from Veitikka Studios, will give us a short overview on a very important topic: how to effectively plan and manage your units during a battle! Kudos to Juha for this great article

In this Dev Diary entry I will show one way to manage a defensive battle plan. As an example, I've decided to play as the United States Army, defending against the Soviet Union. Armored Brigade battles have three phases: the setup phase, the action phase and the after action report phase. Here I'm going through the setup phase. The player must designate his target reference points (TRP) and place obstacles, if he has any, and optionally he can plan unit paths, fire missions etc.

Space Program Manager celebrates the 49th anniversary of the Moon Landing with a discount!

Friday, July 20, 2018

On July 20, 1969, at 10:56 p.m. Eastern Time, people across the Earth listened the words of NASA astronaut Neil Armstrong: "That's one small step for man . . . one giant leap for mankind". These now famous words marked the Apollo 11 mission as one of the most crucial enterprise for modern human history. 

For the first time, human beings walked across the surface of the silent companion of our Planet and the hearts of millions of people watching the event vibrated with an emotion impossible to describe.

Aggressors Dev Diary #6 - Combat (part 1)

Friday, July 20, 2018

One thing I have never liked about 4X strategy games is the missing tactics. I never really understood why. Why cannot a game combine both – strategy and tactics? After all, quite a few generals became emperors!

Armored Brigade Dev Diary #1 - Artificial Intelligence

Monday, July 16, 2018

The Armored Brigade artificial intelligence (AI) is fully dynamic, which means that it can handle any scenario within the game parameters, without a need for any scripting from the scenario designer. This approach has been the basic foundation of the game. I've always found the procedurally generated game content fascinating, and that can be seen in the design philosophy of Armored Brigade.

In Armored Brigade, there's an undefined number of maps, units, environmental conditions, and so on. The system must build a readable representation, process the input and then produce output that creates a credible impression of intelligence that behaves in a realistic, unpredictable and challenging manner. That's quite a challenge indeed. A "chess AI", where you have a finite number of possible states, is out of the question.
