Ageod opens up a new front for wargamers
Grenoble, France, October 02, 2013 - The Spanish Civil War is one of the most important, yet often forgotten, conflicts of the 20 th century. When the Republicans and the Nationalists started the conflict in 1936 Europe was on the verge of collapsing into the worst war it had ever faced. Throughout the three years of hostilities the Iberian peninsula lived through a time of political and social turmoil.
Developed by Ageod ( www.ageod.co.uk) España 1936 features the well-know AGE game engine with a turn-based WEGO system, and covers the entire Spanish Civil War from 1936-1939. The player will find more than 200 regions complete with cities, roads, weapons factories, weather types, factions and sub-factions. The game includes a tutorial, a Grand Campaign covering the whole conflict plus the Fall of the North scenario, a host of historical leaders, units and events.
“ We are excited to bring this game to market”, said Philippe Thibault, Director of Ageod. “ It is not often that players are given the opportunity to be confronted with such a different and original setting. Our mission is to continue to develop our community of fans by offering new opportunities in gameplay, yet trying to open up to new areas of interest”.
España 1936 is the result of deep and detailed research on the history of Spain, and is developed by Spanish developers to provide a strategy game which really focuses on the key issues of this conflict.
