Swedish developer Oxeye Game Studio has released The Strategist, a new turn based strategy title. The game is set primarily during an alternative World War II era, although it also features a medieval campaign. The Strategist offers both single and multiplayer action, more than 30 missions, and five campaigns.
This is Oxeye Game Studio's first product based on their highly optimized "daisy" engine for the Mac OS X market. With this release Oxeye aims to get a foothold in the Mac community as a recognized developer of fun shareware games for both experienced and casual gamers.The game is a Univeral Binary application and requires a G4 processor, and OS X 10.3 or later. It costs $19.95 to register.
In the game, the player takes on the role as the Union's youngest and most promising new Strategist, who is just about to complete his training when the camp is struck by poisonous gas missiles. The player's friend, "Strategist Ricks", is kidnapped and the whole base is shattered by the unexpected attack. To fight back the player has to build new command centers, harbours and industries, and gather information about who the enemies are and where they can be found. The task is not easy and filled with both treachery and deceit.
The gameplay offers strategic decisions and requires careful planning and troop movements in order to win. The game has a fresh way of handling turn actions, which are used for attacking, building new developments and for special commands such as "Chopper Transport", "Propaganda" and "Blitz". The game supports up to 10 players and offers computer-controlled opponents for single-player challenges.
