Wow, I thought that was vaporware.

Looks like the same Slitherix engine is being used for most of their tactical games now.

The screenshots are really impressive and it has tons of features. If it lives up to its lineage and the promise of the feature list it's going to be insane.

I was thinking the same thing....the Pike and Shot engine is what it looks like.

Looks amazing.  Hopefully with Pike and Shot Engine being used it'll have a more enjoyable single player and AI.

Yeah, every time I see Field of Glory I think of that game. 

How I longed for more battles.  I played the four that were offered until my eyes bled.

I wish more modern wargames were like this old game. The only comparable thing I can think of now is ultimate general civil war. Scourge of War would be in the same category but unfortunately falls down in far too many categories including interface and graphics... not a graphics whore, but those scourge of war graphics are well below functional, I find it hard to look at and identify what is going on.
