Arms Race developing - February update.

Hello Everybody!

I'm happy to inform you that developing of new military game mechanic is completed. It was developed and tested. It works perfectly.

Here is screenshot of military units-techs menu. This is real ARMS RACE! I tried to use the best 11 military units of Air, ground and NAVY for both factions during Cold War. You will be able to develop it from 1950 to 2000 based on your investment in each. What military units you think really should be among the best 11 of Cold War for USA and USSR?

Don't waste time waiting for Arms Race. Play THE COLD WAR ERA now!

Arms Race January news

Hello everybody! I would like to inform you that we never stopped our work on Arms Race. Last month we spent a lot of time on adjusting economic mechanics for AI and budget. Arms Race has deeper and more advance Ai and economy system compare to TCWE. And we were doing our best to make sure Ai knows how to use it.

If you take a look on screenshot below you can see blue and red lines of GNP. The screenshot was taking from my test game I played this morning. I was playing as USSR and my line is red. I decided to go for many investments right away and this why my GNP is smaller compare to blue. AI invested less and it's GNP was growing faster. But the most impressive part is that AI has a good feel about it's GNP. You can see when blue GNP goes down AI is trying to avoid investments to different sectors and aim on GNP improvement. You can see after blue GDP goes down AI has fixed it spending and kept GNP growing. This what we were doing last month - creating absolutely functional economy system and teaching AI how to use it. Now it works and we full ahead to work on other game mechanics!

About This Game

The Cold War Era isn't over, it's just beginning

Military might, stealthy spies, blatant propaganda, and high-tech Space Race marvels are all at war game lovers' fingertips when they choose to play as the U.S.A. or the U.S.S.R. and rewrite history in The Cold War Era.

TCWE is a single player RTS strategy game based on the epic conflict between the Americans and the Soviets spanning the 1950s through the 1990s. Within one hour of gameplay players will course through four decades of contention, paranoia, secrecy, and the overarching the "us vs. them" mentality.

Game Features

- Choose your side and play as either the Americans or the Soviets to rewrite Cold War history.

- Launch rockets, satellites and astronauts into space to shock and amaze the world and win their alliances.
