Nations at War is based on the popular game Stratego. It pits armies of a specific historical period against each other.
Nations at War
Nations at War (NAW) is an easy to learn - easy to play computer war game based upon the timeless Stratego. The premise of NAW is allow everyone to enjoy a challenging simple war game game without having to learn a lot of complex rules and have to manage a lot of assets (units etc), in order to be able to play and enjoy the game. In addition to having fun playing the game - there is an "Historical Background" section that gives the player(s) extensive background concerning the nations/armies/time period used in the game. So, in addition to having fun playing the game - the player(s) are able to learn something about the history related to the conflict.
NAW has been designed to be very straight forward and simplistic in it's interface presentation. Currently the game is designed to run on the Windows platform - XP and later. The game itself will require a keyboard and mouse device, video card and sound card to be fully enjoyed. Right now the NAW game is a "single player" (play against a computer opponent), however a multi-player function may be added prior to the final release of the game. Future versions may be developed for both the MAC platform as well as Android platform
Once you start the game you can:
- Start a new game
- Load a previously saved game
- Set game options (sound etc.)
- View the game Help screens
- View the associated Historical Notes
- Quit the game
Starting a new game
This allows the player to start a new game - the player will then have to decide which army to command (Rome or Carthage), how to deploy the army (manually or let the computer do it). Once this has been done the computer opponent (AI) will deploy the other army automatically and the game is ready to be played. The object of the game (like Stratego) is to capture the enemy's standard. Although this is a simple objective - it will require the player to use both the skills of "misdirection" as well as being able to anticipate the opponent's strategy. The game is played until either the player successfully captures the computer opponent's standard or visa versa. If neither side can move - the game will be declared a draw.
Load a previously saved game
This selection will allow the player to "load" a previously saved game to be continued. A game may be saved at various phases - Deployment, Play etc. Once loaded the player can resume play from where they left off.
This selection will allow the player to set various "options" related to game play such as background music, special battle sounds, screen resolution and computer opponent difficulty.
This option will describe in great detail how to play the game. While based on Stratego - there are some differences that the player needs to be aware of in order to fully enjoy the game.
Prior to playing the game it is suggested that the player take the time to read the "Historical Notes" concerning the game. This will provide the player with historical and interesting facts concerning the Nations at War. In addition it will help put the player in the right "mindset" to get full enjoyment from the game.
This option will quit the NAW game and return to the Windows desktop.

The first NAW game is currently in "alpha" development. I am hoping for a Sept 2012 release date. I plan to followup this first release with a "series" of NAW games that will touch upon each important period of History and provide both a fun and informative way to learn some History.
