Newburyport, MA, February 4, 2014--Developer Muzzy Lane has announced their highly anticipated WWI era game “Making History: The Great War” will release for the Mac and the PC on July 28th, 2014. The latest game in the Making History series, The Great War will immerse players in an era of transition and intrigue, backdoor diplomacy and naked aggression, unstable empires with conflicting interests and military strategies rendered obsolete by modern, industrialized warfare. Players will get to control autocratic leaders who, at that time, had almost unlimited power. They control their economies, can raise armies, and make diplomatic deals. As the game progresses, they may find that power slipping away amidst a rising tide of new ideologies and nationalism.
