Still under development (by me) and testing, sorry! I took over the project in late 2011.

I do hope it will be published this year.

Once again, today the Cumberland and Congress were destroyed by CSS Virginia in play-testing (and Minnesota, too). The simple system seems to have the right feel, much to the regret of the Federals in this one (most of the time).

March 8 not far away, time to remember:



Getting close... and we may have a surprise Ironclads release alongside Hearts of Iron.

I am very exited for this game. I guess you are making an American Civil War game too. Good video.

Hi James, could I ask you the following: will HoI include any part of the Danish-Prussian/Austrian war of 1864? (Info to this effect was listed on Avalanche's site years ago, and has apparently been copied to the geek. However, Avalanche has since changes its product description and removed any such references. And they have failed to reply to any of my mails.) Thanks a lot, Jens

I'd like to know if the Greek navy will make an appearance in this. And in what types of scenarii.

Although I am a Gold Club member of Avalanche I don't know how to "preorder" this.

Hi Jens,

Mike decided to move the Danish-Prussian/Austrian conflict to a separate game, that will include a larger Baltic / North Sea operational map. The HOI game is now focused on the Med, with more ships from the Italians and Austrians plus more ships from the French, British, Americans, Turks, Greeks and Egyptians. And a few more smaller navies.

Hi Nikos,

Oh yes, the Greeks are there now. Quite a collection of operational and battle scenarios; all ships in the mix will be used.

Don't worry about pre-orders... this was originally an APL pre-order from 2007 (!)... which is when I ordered it, and look what happened to me! Mike will re-open ordering when it is close to completion. On which, no promises, but I would like to see it published this Fall in time for Xmas.

-Jim

Hi Lucas,

It is still in development and testing.

BTW, the APL website was taken down via cyber attack on 8/22, the day PG(M): 1967 was to be released. Mike's ISP is working to get it back up.

APL website down

Hi Lucas,

Not yet. I had hoped to finish this one and make it available for Mike to publish this year, however it and the companion Civil War game have not progressed as fast as I would have liked.
