    “I had rather have a plain, russet-coated Captain, that knows what he fights for, and loves what he knows, than that you call a Gentleman and is nothing else” – Oliver Cromwell, 1643

    The shadow of the Thirty Years War hit the British Isles in 1625, as Charles I became King of England. Accustomed to a weaker Scottish Parliament, the new King found fiercer opposition from the Parliament in London.

    Now, only two decades later, open war has started with the Royalists facing the Parliamentarians, and the conflict is raging in England and Scotland.

    The Country is at odds, its population forced to take a side and torn apart by religious divisions.

    No one can be neutral this time. To whom will you swear your loyalty? To the King or to the Parliament?

    The choice is yours!

    A new game from Ageod is in the development, and it will focus on the grim years of the English Civil War (1642-1646)!

    Directly from the product page:

    “With a detailed selection of the historical units of the conflict you will find the Covenanters, Newcastle’s whitecoats, Cromwell’s Ironside’s, the new model Army or the Cornwallis legendary infantry. Players can build and manage their armies, throughout the campaigns set in the various theaters of operations like Yorkshire, Cheshire, Lancashire, Bristol, Lincolnshire”

    Two playable factions, Six scenarios, Historical Events triggered throughout the game, Regional Decision Cards, all of this and more, will make you relive the wars that laid the foundation of the British Empire.
