The official Kombat Website
for this upcoming World War II real-time strategy game in the works at Game
Factory UA (thanks Frans
). Here's a description of the game, which is not yet
carrying a projected release date: "Kombat is the 3D RTS game with tactical
wargame and RPG elements. The game uses the real army structure of years 39 - 45
with all main and specialized branches including reconnaissance,
counterespionage and medical squads etc. All main countries - participants of
that time war are playable in the game. Other countries activities are managed
by AI. The gameplay is based on officer’s training system that was used during
the WWII. The unique system of global and local AI provides a lot of gameplay
innovations. The powerful in-house engine allows to use new strong technical
features." The site offers the first nine screenshots from the game.

Wow, there's a LOT of snow out there! Just had to say that for the record.
I think that a properly re-tweaked version of the new format will be finalized

bathing, since this version of the format will have the long-awaited return of
retro colors... a good thing too, as any longer and they'd probably have to be
renamed nostalgic colors.
