I'm not digging the WW2 setting and it looks a little rough on the eyes, but that feature list is impressive.

Yes the WW2 topic is quite burnt IMHO, but again that´s what sell´s for mainstream I guess.

 

I don´t have the game yet, but I like what I see, even though it is a bit rough as you stated.  As mentioned in the preview, I really like the fact that the OPFOR retreats when overunned!  It´s nice to see the AI act like that.  I think the game is open for alot of improvements, and really hope it does so.  I good welcome to the gener 👍

 

BTW, it seems they are a Canadian based company:

I was a student of Dr. Sterrett during my time at the Staff College.

 

His simulations lab would make any wargamer drool; loaded with well-known and a bunch of lesser know simulations and games. He also has a wall, from floor to ceiling, of board games.

Cold War, the RTS was on sale July 1st then removed from the Steam website apparently for copyright infringement 5 hours after the release (the devs got a DMCA complaint notice)

Who complained, the European Escalation makers?

This looks like a straight rip-off (uh, "clone", an age-old honored game development tradition).

What I don't like about these new age war games is that unit spawn system c&c like. You start with £x.xx then you get £y.yy per "turn" to buy new units. I hate that, it makes no sense to me.
