[prMac.com] Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Shenandoah Studio is proud to announce the successful funding of iPad and iPhone wargame Gettysburg: The Tide Turns on Kickstarter.
The project reached 149% of its initial goal, raising nearly $30,000. We are grateful for the more than 900 supporters who rallied to our cause. Their contributions have made Gettysburg: The Tide Turns possible and have allowed us to proceed confidently in this new direction.
We are starting full development on the project and will provide periodic updates to Kickstarter backers. Gettysburg: The Tide Turns is scheduled for release in Quarter 1, 2014.
About Gettysburg: The Tide Turns:
Gettysburg captures this major Civil War conflict through a new hex-based wargame designed from the ground up for iOS by Eric Lee Smith. Players command brigades of soldiers hoping to out-wit their opponents across a beautifully rendered battlefield. Gettysburg features the same level of playability and strategic depth that Shenandoah Studio is known for, as well as the polish and intuitive interface that made Battle of the Bulge so exciting to gaming veterans and so welcoming to those who had never played a wargame before.
Gettysburg: The Tide Turns planned features:
* Play as the Union or Confederates across the entire scope of the battle
* Play on both iPad and iPhone
* Easy play for casual players
* Access to depth and full game rules for hardcore players
* An innovative movement system that randomizes turns for increased tension
* Beautifully rendered maps and interfaces
* Historical commentary, photographs, and images included along with the game
* Online multiplayer via Game Center
* And more to be announced...
