The second part of the AAR of Order of Battle Pacific is out!

Posted: 7 APR 2015

“I said, to the people of the Philippines whence I came, I shall return!” (General Douglas MacArthur)

As promised here’s the second part of the great AAR of Order of Battle: Pacific!

We have left our heroic defenders while they were trying to hold the line against the Japanese invasion force.

They fought bravery inflicting heavy losses to the enemy, but he still has numerical superiority and reinforcements are on the way. Conversely, for the allies every unit lost was a severe wound blow to their defensive plan. 

Will Dave and Lukas be able to prevent the fall of the Philippines, or will they only be remembered for their failure?

Be prepared to see a lot of artillery strikes, hazardous flanking manoeuvres and gallant actions!

Order of Battle: Pacific gets an After Action Report!

Posted: 20 MAR 2015

Good news soldiers!

As the release date is approaching, we think it’s high time to share more visuals and information about Order of Battle: Pacific. There’s no better way than a comprehensive AAR to delve into details and see what the game can really offer. That is why Lukas (game designer) and Dave (AI programmer) work hand in hand during 20 turns in the sultry Philippines against a very capable Japanese AI!

We are in December 1941 and the Japanese army is starting its invasion of the Philippines.  Only few US units are available in this sector and have no chance of repelling the enemy. However, they can surely delay them. And the longer they resist, the better the US army will be able to strike back! But will Dave and Lukas cooperate effectively during 20 stressful turns?
