This is a hex-based game that offers up battles and campaigns across all World War 2 fronts. Developed by an 18-year-old Frenchman who is constantly updating and tweaking this game, it is a great little hex-based experience. It is easy to learn and is a really lite, fun game. Worth the money IMO, you won't be disappointed if you want a challenge but want something you can get through in an evening. He is working on a 3-D game that looks like he will knock it out of the park. LInk is to a tutorial video, he has a Youtube channel "Hex of Steel".

Re Desert War 1940-42
Brain Kelly has "WEGO WW2: Stalingrad" coming out soon.
The mechanic is updated from DW42 and Stalingrad is the first of four planned games in the series.

Downloaded the demo for this (which seems to be the full game) from Steam the other day, still haven't had the time to check it out. From all the descriptions it seems like a really good free-form WW2 wargame. When I can pry myself from learning the other games I got, I'll give this one a shot, and if I like it, definitely buy it to support the dev.

@HOA-KSOP

Thought you might enjoy this little interaction I had with the developer of this game. Quite an impressive achievement for this young man and his brother to pull off. The Lad has obviously got a coding future ahead of him.

Cheers!

Bonjour valentin56610,

May I inquire how long it took from conception to final release for you to develop and publish this title?

Salut & Cheers !
Bonjour ! :)

Oh, I hope you're gonna have fun :p

It took just a few months from development to release on Steam in Early Access. I started EA in March 2020, and left EA in Summer 2021
It took 4 or so months of development before I posted the game on Steam in EA
Pretty quick, but definitely not the game you are playing now

If you are interested in what the game was at the beginning, have a look at this video that was made

Liken und abonnieren nicht vergessen :) Besucht mich auf Facebook und entscheidet was gespielt wird. Dort ist eine Liste mit den meisten Games aufgelistet. https://www.facebook.com/lonewolf.gam...


And so I have been working pretty much non stop on this game for now more than 2 years :)
I have another game in the works now though so expect less updates from me ;)

@Bones26 Thank you for sharing. These guys are some working fools. Even after cutting back on the updates so he can focus on his new game I still see regular updates and NEW features from these guys. They are very prolific developers and frankly, I think their new game is going to blow us out of the water, judging from their Youtube developer vids. HoS just keeps getting better. I have not played after the latest round of feature additions and content add ons, so I better circle back and check out all the goodies.

@HOA_KSOP

Went and checked out the Developer videos on his HoS YouTube channel that you mentioned and your right this new title he is working on looks extremely promising . Crazy what an independent developer can accomplish. While it clearly looks like it is a FPS of sorts I'm curious as to what final form it will ultimately take.

Oh, and he also indicated that he expects the beta for this new release to launch this month.

Much respect for his efforts.

Cheers !
