Virtual Programming today announced the release of Paradox Interactive's strategy game Victoria II for Mac OS X. The game takes players to the year 1836, where they can choose from over 200 nations to guide through the start of World War II. In Victoria II the domestic front holds greater importance than simply conquering neighbors, with a focus on economic development as the world enters the industrial era.

Victoria II
"Victoria II offers an exquisite historical simulation, from the colonization era through the upheaval of World War I and the complex situation the planet faced at the cusp of World War II," said Virtual Programming CEO Mark Hinton. "It's not easy to nail down that part of world history, and our friends at Paradox Interactive got it just right."

"We put a lot of effort into capturing the rich intricacies of a country's development, including socio-political changes, market systems, the interplay of various population groups, and more," said Paradox Interactive's Fredrik Wester. "Victoria II may be the most complex domestic strategy game ever developed."
