Developer diary 10 - Releasing the demo!:
Ladies and Gentleman!
We are so far: I announce the demo of the Italian Campaign 2.0!
Who played the original Italian Campaign from Nikivdd, these three scenarios will be looking familiar - but with many new features, units, briefings (and all those things, which it was written here in the topic) and modified gameplay! Don't forget to check the new minimap function on the map too - I have worked much with them!
I plan it so, when the full campaign comes out, you can continue your saved game from the demo. Hopefully nothing will be standing in that way.
The campaign was tested/played in different difficulty levels: Nikivdd played on Colonel level, I played on Rommel level. If you prefer the harder ones, expect really hard and challenging battles! This means, that you have to focus all of the time for all of the units, plus the aux units too, because the DV could depend on it, how much you handle them. I wanted to create a campaign, where you have to play mostly the scenarios more than once, because they are so hard. This gives more immersion and more happiness, when you win at least on that given *damn* hard scenario!!
It is not always imperative to make a DV to be on the best campaing-way, but it always worth. Many times it depends also much, how you are "trading" with core units: sometimes it is useful to buy some 'temporally' core units, at the second half of a scenario to assist you on the success, than sell them on the next deployement phase and patch your other core units back to battle-ready level. Of course, if you feel the IC 2.0 too hard, you can try it on an easier level.
So, nothing more to say: Good luck all of you Generale's!
...and don't forget to report back!
