Successor to The Seven Years War (1756-1763) announced!


The battlefields of the seven years war may have seemed a bit quiet for some time, and now I am happy to tell you why: Work on a successor to The Seven Years War (1756-1763) has started!

I have teamed up with Ilja Varha and Peter Lebek, both of who helped me with The Seven Years project after its release. Our new project is called Grand Tactician, and it's designed to be a series of strategy games, dedicated in bringing to life conflicts from our favorite period in history of war: 17-19th centuries, the era of line warfare. Instead of just a step forward to create a sequel to TSYW, we are going for a full leap, switching to a new engine and improving on the design considerably. At this point I would like to thank all the players of The Seven Years War (1756-1763) for the feedback you have given me. It has been carefully read and taken into account in the new project! We are working hard to improve the design in every way, as well as bringing in a lot of new features we hope you will like.

While Grand Tactician fully occupies my time, the support for The Seven Years War will continue in the background.

We will reveal more information about the progress of Grand Tactician in the new website, as well as social media, so stay tuned! I hope to see you all in the battlefields of Grand Tactician!

The new website has opened at:
www.grandtactician.com

And we have released the first bits of information in our developer's blog:

“When I purchased it I was a bit intrigued about this game. After a few hours of playing it, I am still intrigued about this game.”
Real and Simulated Wars

“Empire: Total War stares in disbelief, as a single man slaps its face with a glove. It feels as futile as the Prussian guard's assault at Kolín. But the bayonet is firmly fixed, and the face underneath the grenadier's hat shows determination: Oliver Keppelmüller's strategy game, The Seven Years War (1756-1763) doesn't fawn before bigger titles.”
The Pelit (2/16) - biggest gaming magazine Finland

“In an era where developers are pushed by corporate concerns, gamers – especially those interested in understudied topics – should embrace this game and use it as a model for the path our hobby should take.”
