Website launched.

Doing things a bit backwards here. Launched a game on two platforms and only then made a website for it a month later...

Anyway, it's mostly useless except for a very nice online manual! This will hopeful show people what kind of game this is without having to buy it first. Buying games on impulse is totally ok, I do it myself all the time, but some people are just smarter about that. Check it out, its even more detailed than the tutorials, and let me know if there are more questions that need answers or something you would like to see explained in the manual.

Android version released.

Today I released the Android version of Forward Line on the Google Play store.

The advantage of mobile is that almost everyone has a phone, so it should be much easier to arrange head to head matches any time two people with phones have some downtime, even if they are supposed to be working! (I won't tell!)

The advantage of the Windows version is mainly screen size. It's a bit easier to visualize the situation on the board when you can see the whole thing. On a phone you have to play zoomed in most of the time, though the camera will pan automatically to show you enemy moves etc. I find that it still works well.

Also, the two different versions are multiplayer compatible, so you can have one player on computer and another on phone/tablet.

I hope you have time to check it out.

About This Game

Forward Line is a turn based, medium weight, abstract strategy board game with a World War II theme. The object is to capture the cities of the world with your military units. The game is over when one player has more than twice as many cities than his opponent. Each city can create one unit per game turn, so the more cities you conquer the more units you can muster and the greater your chances of victory.

In some ways the game is like chess, in that it is a game of positioning and maneuver; there is no random chance involved in determining whether a unit defeats an enemy unit. However, you must also use the terrain to gain advantage, and must sometimes contend with imperfect knowledge, such as managing the danger of deadly, invisible submarines. There are 10 types of military unit that have unique roles that must be combined to deceive, outrun, outwit and overwhelm your opponent.

  • Multiplayer mode over LAN, Wi-Fi or internet.
  • Single player mode against the AI.
  • In game tutorial for learning the rules.
  • View the online manual for details on the gameplay mechanics (link on right)--->
