About This Game
Cold War Game - a real-time tactical strategy (RTT) that simulates interaction of various types of troops. Command your troops, show your martial ingenuity and complete all tasks.

In the 1970-80s, the world was divided into two camps. Ideological systems are at the peak of military, economic and geopolitical confrontation. The arms race is getting up to the highest boiling-point. The parties threaten each other in various ways - from deployment of ballistic missiles in the allied countries to strategic defense initiative in space. During this time difficult negotiations are underway to reduce all types of weapons. Let's simulate what could happen if the parties did not find a common language?

In our game, as alternative history we propose choosing a side in a hypothetical conflict between two competing blocs led by the USSR and the USA.

Actions deploy on the territory of divided Germany in the 1970s.
PLACE OF ACTIONS: GERMANY 1970s
Realize your military tactical conception on large maps of divided Germany of the 1970s, based on historical cartography. Competently use your tactical advantages of the position.
CO-OPERATION AND INTERACTION BETWEEN VARIOUS TYPES OF TROOPS
In the battle do not forget about interaction between various types of troops: cover your ground troops with aviation, defend against air raids with air defense, scout enemy positions, strike enemy troops’ gatherings by artillery and replenish ammunition in time.
HISTORICALLY ACCURATE REPRESENTATION OF MACHINERY AND EQUIPMENT APPEARANCE
More than 50 highly detailed 3D-models of military machinery and equipment have been transferred to your command.
ADVANCED DAMAGE MULTIFACTOR MODEL
Our game has an advanced system of registration of equipment damage instead of a health-bar (life-bar). Panzer vehicle schemes correspond to real prototypes. Our algorithms take into account the thickness, type and inclination of the armoured sheets when calculating the damage. The damage mode calculation counts the nearness of the hit to the place of a crew, engine, ammunition and chassis. Class of ammunition, the firing distance and the angle of impact – all that counts in the model. Thanks to this, the planning of tactical maneuvers can destroy enemy superior in strength.

At first glance it looks like a Wargame game clone which really isn't a bad thing. EA release will be next Month.

Heh, I was about to say can't you include the damn name of the game in the thread title?  Then I realised it actually is called...Cold War Game.  ::)

Anyway, yeah, it does look very reminiscent of Eugen Systems games.  Which is great!

I would say "very reminiscent" is an understatement. It looks exactly like the Eugen system titles and seems to follow the same naming conventions. Eugen gave us "wargame", these guys are giving us "Cold Wargame".  :idiot2:

Yikes.  Is this an asset flip?  I've not heard of the developer.

It looks like Eugen all right.

I hope its a quality product.
I really wish Eugen would have made a Wargame WW2, instead they went with SD1/2 which aren't near as popular. They have also stated they are indeed done with the Wargame series.

On EA release in November will be skirmish mode against the AI only, multiplayer wont be added until on down the road.

Provocative?

That's what I'd call it. 

After looking at this it's hard to imagine they aren't using some assets from Eugen. 

It goes beyond similar style. 

They don't seem to be advertising any kind of licencing or partnership, so I'm wondering if some controversy might be afoot.

I'm not the best investigator in the world, but I thought I'd be able to find some kind of listing for a company called 'Room 301'.

Since we're making Eugen connections I thought this might be another French company but unless I'm looking in the wrong place, there's no company with that name registered with the French authorities that govern these things (leaving a wide margin for error there).

Certainly not a UK company, at least. Haven't check America yet.

It certainly looks similar, although the graphics seem to be of a better quality than the original Wargame, which is, what, at least half a decade old now?

They've certainly copied the style to a large degree, whether they've done more than that I think is just speculation at this point.

My understanding is that this developer is Russian.

Couple of other things are catching my attention. No crew in the helicopters and no fixed wing aircraft...meh.
