Welcome to Vietnam Lieutenant !

Post by Every Single Soldier » Wed Jan 14, 2015 5:12 pm

Hi everybody, welcome to the Vietnam'65 forum.

Vietnam'65 is at it's very core a game about Insurgency/Counter Insurgency (COIN) and has an original and fresh approach.

This is not a game about Blue forces massing to crush the Red forces.

This is a counter-insurgency model that uses the Hearts and Minds of the local population and Political Support as the two levers to victory.

It includes all the iconic features of the Vietnam War, including inter alia

Fire support bases, airstrikes, training ARVN forces, intelligence gathering, special forces, mines and booby traps, NVA offensives, search and destroy missions, MEDEVACS, Ho chi Minh trail etc

This is an engaging strategy game that will keep the payer engrossed for around 2 and a half hours per game. The AI model is very well defined and balanced making the veteran mode challenging (I still lose ;) whilst at the same time keeping it authentic to the Vietnam War, a very important consideration.

Insurgency wars are all about intelligence, combat and the local population, all covered in depth in this game

Back in March last year, I sent a rudimentary prototype out to a few gaming websites, this is what they said

Rock, Paper, Shotgun :

"Enjoying a game that captures the challenges of counter-insurgency operations and the character of the Vietnam War better than any title I can think of."

"What keeps me COINing is the wonderful Vietnam War feel, and the fact that every setback feels plausible. I’m enjoying failure and, going by past experience, that’s a sure sign I’m in the presence of a strong design."

pockettactics :

"Vietnam'65 is a breath of fresh air"

"I’ve been playing a preview copy of forthcoming iOS wargame Vietnam ’65, and man this game is interesting."

Oh so you can build roads, the gameplay vid didn't let me know about this. Can you also build bridges over rivers?

More like river crossings than bridges... :)

With certain maps, road building plays a major role in winning the Vietnam War :shock:
