New Content and Feature Updates!

Posted on Jul 01, 2015 at 06:00 PM by ralph

The last few weeks we’ve been quietly working on new models, features and fixing issues that have come to us from the community. We now have plans to release an extension product to the TGW series. More details and an official announcement will be made in the weeks ahead. In the meantime we are offering some of these new assets and game features to the current user base. This update gives you a new Hungarian Unit model set, Mexican revolutionary models for the Federales, Villistas and Zapatistas plus updated Chinese Units.

As we go forward with this new project, regular updates and improvements will continue to be made on the current game. We see TGW as a platform to expand upon and evolve.

    January 20, 2015 

    With the game about to officially release on Jan 29th, lead engineer Dave McCool, MH designer Ralph Gerth and I (Chris Parsons, product manager), were reflecting recently on our experience having a game available to the public on Steam’s Early Access. We’ve been hearing a lot about Early Access lately, including some criticism from players who bought in and then were unhappy when the title they purchased remained in Early Access too long, or, in some cases, never emerged. These are perfectly valid concerns. Like Kickstarter projects, buying into a creative process in the early stages of development isn’t a sure thing. So what’s the view from the developer side?
