What a wonderful launch, Thank you very much!

Thank you everyone for making us have such a wonderful launch weekend!



First Strike: Final Hour started really well on Steam and everyone at Blindflug is so happy with the reception. It seems there are a lot of you longtime fans instantly playing Final Hour on day one, even though you already know the game from back on mobile. It makes us very proud to see in the reviews that you are happy with the results

We're also incredibly humbled by the ammount of you who actually bought the deluxe version. We never thought so many of you would pay the extra bucks for the Soundtrack and the Design Document/Retro Boxes/Wallpaper Pack. This helps us, but especially the Music Artist Michel Barengo out a big lot. (He also wants to say thank you that you made the "Great Soundtrack" tag happen). Thank you so much!

There is one more thing we can announce. We dont wanna ask for more money, we just want to let you know, because its something we wanted for a long time. People often asked us to make similar shirts than the ones we wear at conventions (like the ones in the picture above). But that was impossible because we did them all locally here and they would have cost over 60$. So we decided opened up our own Blindflug Threadless Artist Store yesterday



We've remastered a series of all five Superweapon Shirts we wore on exhibitions for First Strike Around the world. They have new special color highlights, making them even a bit prettier than the team shirts. We hope you like the designs, we'd love to hear what you think of them.

Again, thank you very much for all the nice words. This makes all the work so much worthwhile

- Olga, Michael, Moritz, Frédéric, Sophie, Urs & Jeremy

About This Game



Welcome commander, you are now in power of one of the biggest nuclear superpowers of the world. So choose your steps carefully, it’s a small path between war and peace.

First Strike is a fast paced real time strategy game which makes dropping the big one as easy as ABC. But be sure to take the right measures to guarantee your people’s safety.

Pick one of the big nuclear players – from known superpowers like the USA to an upstart hellraiser like North Korea – and plan your strategy wisely: Expand to other countries, build bombs or debuild in order to restructure your arsenal. Or use research to gain access to new nuclear technology, better recon intel, automated self-defense-sequences and many more.

Whether you’re a bloodthirsty warmonger or a tree-hugging hippie – it’s time to put your cards on the table. First Strike shows you how little it takes to heat things up. You control the destiny of the precious and vulnerable rock floating through space, the rock we call mothership Earth.

 So, will you be the one remaining when the whole world blows to smithereens?
