Once upon a time, TriplePoint client Rubicon Development went ahead and released a great little war game entitled Great Little War Game. It may have been little, but it was pretty great, racking up 2.5 million players and a fistful of awards. So, how do you follow up a great little war game like that? You release a great big war game, is what you do, and you call it Great Big War Game. And you tell the world it’ll let you play asynchronous strategy matches against anybody, regardless of platform, because it’ll run on Android phones and tablets, iPhones, and iPads, and there’s even going to be a free “lite” version. And it’s coming out in a week, on July 18th. That’s what you do.
From the press release:
In Great Big War Game, players will take control of Jenkins as he fights to prevail in battle while receiving orders from the dimwitted Generalissimo. Gamers will take turns moving and attacking across the 3D hex-grid battlefield, using land, sea, and air units to defeat their foes, all while adjusting their strategy around ever-changing enemy movements. With 50 original levels spread across a cartoon-like world, and a tutorial for newer players, Great Big War Game mixes the best features of strategy board games and PC titles. For the first time in the series, added cross-platform multiplayer will enable players to seamlessly wage war across their iOS, Android and other devices. Battles play out asynchronously, so gamers can start a battle on one platform and finish it on another.
Here’s a great little trailer for Great Big War Game. Stare at it with your great big eyes!
