Twilight Struggle (PSV)
Twilight Struggle (PSV)

Strategy TBA

A digital adaptation of the strategy board game created by American company GMT Games. Twilight Struggle takes place during the Cold War and the player assumes the role of a leader of one of the two empires – USA or USSR. The game is played in turns on a global map. The rivaling sides are playing with cards that trigger events beneficial for one, either, or neither side of the conflict. The cards can be used for things such as strengthening one’s position, at the cost of the opponent, or technological development. At the same time both sides must be careful as escalation of the conflict can lead to a nuclear holocaust. The “What if?” mode is an interesting addition. It allows playing in an alternative reality in which, for example, whole Berlin was conquered by the western nations and the elections in England in 1945 were once again won by Churchill and his conservative party. The base of the gameplay in Twilight Struggle is a rivalry between two players, but there is also a single player mode available, in which one faces artificial intelligence.

Another installment of the popular strategy game series by Team 17 focusing on warring worms. Contrary to several of its three-dimensional predecessors, Worms: Revolution Extreme offers classical gameplay with action depicted from the side as teams of aggressive worms take their turns in attempt to eradicate the enemy team.

Chroma Squad (PSV)

Strategy canceled

An oldschool, humorous strategy game from the creators of Knights of Pen & Paper from Behold studio. The game tells the story of a group of stuntmen, who after years-long career have decide to make their own TV series and hire the player as their manager. Gameplay focuses on the economic aspects and tactical, turn-based battles. We must hire actors, give them costumes and roles in each scene. We also manage the technical aspects of the production by buying and upgrading equipment, like microphones, camera and elements of scenography. Then we start filming episodes, which take the form of tactical battles and let us use typical movies tricks and gadgets. Chroma Squad takes a lot from low budget TV series about superheroes like Power Rangers and is filled with references to the genre.
