Over dit spel

Geïnspireerd door de cultfilm Wargames uit 1983, roept DEFCON op weergaloze wijze de spanning, paranoia en verdenkingen op van het tijdperk van de Koude Oorlog en speelt in op de fascinerende aspecten van de strategische kernwapenwedloop.
Je speelt een generaal die in een ondergrondse bunker verborgen zit. Je missie is de burgerbevolking van de vijand volledig uit te roeien en je eigen burgers te sparen. Je krijgt of verliest punten op grond van de doeltreffendheid en doortastendheid van je nucleaire vendetta en het aantal burgerdoden aan jouw eigen kant. Om te winnen moet je de vijandige bevolking uitroeien en tegelijkertijd voorkomen dat de vijand de kans krijgt om vergeldingsmaatregelen te treffen. Je staat voor een uiterst moeilijke taak omdat je bij een aanval op de vijand de posities van je eigen Ground Silos, Subs en Bombers verraadt op het moment dat ze nucleaire wapens lanceren. Dit maakt je buitengewoon kwetsbaar en stelt je bloot aan een verpletterende tegenaanval.
Je moet wanhopig pogingen ondernemen om snelle, tactische bondgenootschappen te sluiten... bondgenootschappen die elk moment uiteen kunnen vallen en veranderen in een misleidend en dodelijk verraad. Iedereen kijkt naar elkaar in een staat van nerveuze spanning en paranoïde beschuldigingen. In een grootscheeps nucleair Armageddon sterft iedereen en verliest iedereen, zorg er dus voor dat jij zo weinig mogelijk verliezen lijdt!

Channel Five News: "Breaking news: The US has launched a pre-emptive nuclear strike against North Korean ICBM silos causing collateral damage to several large cities and thus inflicting more than a million casualties. The exact numbers are not certain but the city of Pyongyang was hit directly as five silos where reportedly located in the center of the North Korean capital. The decision of dropping nuclear warheads on North Korea has stirred massive debate between UN members on whether or not the US should be punished for its deeds. China and Russia are calling for a world wide embargo on US goods and ..."

Dear Charlene,
I miss you. How are you? Are the kids fine? How is the weather in New York? I guess you've heard about the Chinese surprise attack against the Pacific Fleet? Yeah. I don't think that I'll be home soon. High Command is deploying my squadron to Anchorage, Alaska. I hope that this doesn't escalate.
Love you,
Mick.

Mick,
The President has just said on TV that we're at war with China! He said that we are mobilizing our nuclear assets! What does it mean!? And why oh why did we have to attack North Korea? What was it good for? Please Mick. You've got to come home.
Charlene

Charlene,
I can't go home. I've got to serve my country. I can't just let them kill Americans and let them get away with it! We had to nuke North Korea or we were going to be the ones being nuked! Anyway. Please take care of the kids...I have to take off in an hour or so...I could not come back alive. Just...take the kids, go to Vicky in the countryside. She may be crazy but she lives near a nuclear bunker. I'd feel better knowing that you and the kids are close to a bunker. ♥♥♥♥ might just hit the fan. I love you Charlie,
Mick

Mick! I've just seen in the news that the Chinese are readying their nukes! I'm taking the kids to the subway! Please be safe and know that I love you too!

17-04-2015 - Flight Log Excerpt from '82-1068 Spirit of New-York' Coordinates CLASSIFIED

- Lt. Michael Davidsson 18:45:17: "Control. We're going dark in exactly five minutes. What are our orders?"
- Control 18:45:47: "Standby 82-1068. We're transmitting your orders. God's speed."
- Lt. Michael Davidsson 18:46:07: "Control. Are these orders legitimate? I me...
- Control 18:46:09: "I can assure you that these are legitimate and correct orders Luitenant. POTUS has called for them as OPFOR has launched its nuclear arsenal."
- Lt. Michael Davidsson 18:46:25: "That can't be true! When did they have the time to launch?!"
- Control 18:46:34: "That was just about two minutes ago Luitenant. Diplomacy has failed. Now do your job and make your country proud."
- Lt. Michael Davidsson 18:46:52: "*Audible sigh* Roger that Control. May God have mercy on our souls."
- Lt. Eugene Rodriguez 18:46:59: "Are we really going to nuke Beijing? This is madness!"
- Lt. Eugene Rodriguez 18:48:02: "Sir are you going to say something or not?! I call that we immediately turn ar..."
- Lt. Michael Davidsson 18:48:07: " Dammit Eugene! We have to do this! This is what we have trained for! Now stick to your orders!"
- Lt. Eugene Rodriguez 18:48:14: "I refuse! I'm taking us back home! I don't want to be remembered for murdering millions of people! They're people Mick!"
- Lt. Michael Davidsson 18:48:21: "I don't care! Orders are orders! Nuclear payloads are going to rain down on our friends and families! We have to avenge them!"
- Lt. Eugene Rodriguez 18:48:29: "NO! Wa...Wait! Mick! Come on! We've been friends for like forev..."*shots fired*
- Lt. Michael Davidsson 18:48:35: "I have to do this Eugene...there is no other option."*loud breathing*
- Control 18:49:30: "Luitenant. You have to go dark in a few seconds. Please confirm that you and your co-pilot have understood your orders."
- Lt. Michael Davidsson 18:49:37:"Control...Eugene refused to comply. I had to shoot him. He wasn't ready. I...I..."
- Control 18:49:48: "It's okay Michael. You did what you had to do. Finish your mission. I think that Baghdad's international airport will be your best landing spot. Anchorage is a viable target for nuclear retaliation now. Russia is readying its own nuclear arsenal for launch. I'm proud of you. America is proud of you."
- Lt. Michael Davidsson 18:50:04: "Thanks Jim. I hope you make it. I'm going dark in three, two, one"
TRANSMISSION ENDED.

A simple arcade simulation of thermonuclear annihilation. This is what Mathew Broderick was looking at in WarGames. The simple mechanics of bombers, ICBMs, and submarines only make destroying the world's population even more satisfying. The game's tagline describes your experience perfectly: Everybody dies.

This is basically thermo-nuclear gangbang simulation with some morality thrown in to make you feel bad for good measure.

10/10 Would question my sanity play again
