According to the press release, seems like they still have to go through final beta yet...so I am guessing we might have some time left and wouldn't be surprised if Matrix tries and adds their own flavor to it before released:)  Now the fun part will be is how much they will charge for this.  Anyone thinking in the $80+ range like their more popular big games?

Mixed feelings here.  I like that wargames are being consolidated under one roof for easy of access, but I fear the fact that in 10 years it'll cost as much as on release day.

and why do they insist on having a forum on matrix for it and a forum on slitherine for it recently - just put 'see matrix' in the other one, theres always info in one that isnt in the other

Well he said they would announce a release date in his post. "Still in development" is about as loose as it can get - and news about a publisher is about as unexciting news as it can be. 70 - 80 buks at least I would think.

This is one of my biggest issues with Matrix and Slitherine....if you are one company now, why not have combined forums and stores?  I have a feeling they are setup this way in cas they ever dissolve and go separate ways in the future:)

Good news, thanks...hope they can keep the price out of the WitPAE and WitE ballpark.

I think Matrix may be able to help them since they have some kind of a game, but aren't sure how to package it.  Three crucial steps:

1) Change the name (anything at all is better than "Command" -- that's like naming something "Big Thing")
2) Make sure it actually works installation and graphics-wise on a wide range of machines
3) package it and sell it

1a change the name to Byzantium 1908.  With a 'z' that's +60 bucks for the next decade!

I thought the name "Command" was one chosen as a winner out of a competition to name the game!

I still think Red Pill was a better more identifiable/catchy name.

Perhaps "Naval War Z" will sell more copied? ;)
