Since its release in 2005, GMT's Twilight Struggle boardgame has brought the strategic challenges of fighting the Cold War to life on the game tables of tens of thousands of strategy game players worldwide. Over the years, one of the most oft-repeated pieces of feedback from players of Twilight Struggle has been "When are you going to make a Twilight Struggle computer game that lets us play against an AI and against other players?" We've been working on the answer to that question for the past 18 months or so, and are now ready to tell you that the answer is firmly "Coming in Late 2012!"
This is a computer game for Windows PC or Mac OSX that faithfully recreates the Twilight Struggle boardgame. All of the cards, rules, and gameplay options are included. Winning strategies for the boardgame will work just as well here (well, except for those times when the AI is truly evil!)
The game allows for both solo play against a computer AI as well as Internet Play versus a live opponent.
You can Save and Resume games in progress.
The User Interface is designed with an auto zoom feature that allows you to use the mousewheel to quickly pan and precisely zoom in to an area of interest or back out to see the big picture.
