Precipice Update 1.3.4 (Petrov)

* Bugfix: Very ugly AI bug where after backing down from a challenge, the AI would take two turns is resolved. The same bug often resulted in an identity crisis, where the player could be blamed for the AI's actions. This bug appeared to have been introduced very recently as part of the Petrov update.

About This Game

Atomic Age Brinkmanship


Take control of the United States or Soviet Union and provide technical and economic assistance to guerrillas all over the world fighting for your cause, all while avoiding a direct and open-confrontation with the enemy.

​In Precipice, subterfuge is the most important strategy. Safeguard your closest allies and change unfavorable regimes without giving away your long-term ambitions. Every action risks an enemy reprisal, and if nobody backs down from a standoff, we all lose.

Will you be victorious in the Cold War, or will you send us all over the precipice of nuclear annihilation?

  • Manage resources from territories under your control to resolve immediate crises or win over future allies.
  • Recreate history, or forge your own path. Put a bear on the moon. The possibilities are endless.
