Steam Release PDF Print E-mail

We are very proud to have Scourge of War - Waterloo on Steam. This is the premier PC gaming platform and it's awesome to see hardcore wargames on there. Big thanks to Matrix for making this happen. Iain, JD, Marco, and Matt! Thank you for working so hard on the Matrix side and stepping us through the process.

A lot of Steam popularity depends on user reviews. So if we want wargames to stay at the top and attract more gamers to the genre, we need you to spread the word. If you have a Steam account, please go on their and point new users to our boards or help them out there. Let's see if we can get some positive reviews on there. We all know that the SOW games have a steep learning curve, so without everyone's help people are just going to pick up the game and get frustrated. Maneuvering your infantry or directing a cavalry charge is a little harder than getting a headshot on a zombie. We have a great community here and we'd like to see it grow. The new patch takes care of a lot of the major game play issues. So we're ready to school the world on how to get through the Battle of Waterloo without losing too many couriers.

Thank you everyone for your great support of our games!

A short update, a new Troop Sprite, and More PDF Print E-mail

I know everyone is busy playing Waterloo so I'll try and keep this brief.  We just wanted to post a quick update on what we've been up to, as well as our plans for the near future.

First of all, we may have seemed a bit quiet as of late.  That's because we've been hard at work finalizing the SDK (Software Development Kit).  This kit will contain all of the tools you need to mod the game, including a Scenario Editor.

Following the release of the SDK, next up will be the first major patch for Waterloo.  The patch will address a few pesky bugs, as well as other updates.

Also, Tim (our troop sprite extraordinaire) posted a poll on the forum a few weeks back on adding a couple brand new troop sprite mods to the game.  Well, your votes were counted and the Prussian Landwehr Cavalry, and the Chasseurs a Cheval Garde won!  (click the names to download the mods)

New Sprite!


And finally, you may have seen the posts from Matrix games on Facebook or Twitter, or on the official HOW15 site , but Matt (A.K.A "Little Powell") made the journey across the pond to attend the 2015 Home Of Wargamers Developers Conference.  The event was held in Castel Brando--a magnificent medieval castle situated in the hills of northern Italy!  Matrix Games/Slitherine put on a fantastic event, with several informative presentations, guest speakers, and of course a little entertainment, which included an archery contest and a wine tasting at an 8,000 year old vineyard.  The developers discussed where the industry is going, and ways to make the best wargames available even better.

That's it for now.  Hope you are enjoying Waterloo, and keep the feedback coming.
