What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Warfront Defenders: Westerplatte is a game inspired by history. It's been shaped up by historians, Polish museum authorities and fans working alongside us. It treads a fine line between history and fantasy.
The game aspires to be fun to play while touching moments of history. So, before release, we need contribution from history buffs and players to confirm that we are respecting both sides.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It's expected to remain in Early access for about 4-6 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of the game will feature more levels, features, and mechanics. More enemy type and new strategies evolving from the destruction of the environment. Also, the game will have steam achievements.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is currently stable and has two fully playable levels, as well as a separate tutorial level. All the weapons, upgrades and features have been implemented in full. There may be minor bugs that need to be ironed out. The balance of the gameplay and level length may need tweaking based on early access feedback. Illustrated Histories/Lores related to the first two levels are also included.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game is expected to have higher price on full retail release.”

Community, their suggestions, and historical information will help us realize the game. Developing the game actively involving the community is what we have been doing. And right now we need their help more than ever.”

About This Game

Battle of Westerplatte was unique in many ways, and this game will try to reflect on that. Players can expect that they will be outnumbered, outgunned, but not out of tactics. Also, expect enemies with brains, they will react to your strategies and apply counter strategies to break down your defences. All you have is a handful of soldiers to stand in their way.
Warfront Defenders as a series of games will attempt to take inspiration from the historical battles of WW2 and turn them into tactical games playable on small dioramas. This game is made in collaboration with the Museum of Westerplatte to derive inspiration from the actual event and design the level based on the actual maps from the period. Though this is not a chronological account of the battle, the gameplay and the tactics are heavily inspired by the proceedings of the historical battle and its challenges are designed to remember the defenders of Westerplatte.
