Kombat Koming

The official Kombat Website is online 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.

Out of the Blue

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 enough to go online today. I hope none of the unwashed heathens have been 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.

Play Time: Fly_2. Thanks markus friedl.
Link of the Day: Have Snow Shovel, Will Travel. A History of Snow Removal.
Images of the Day: The Brick Apple. Thanks Ant and Slashdot.
Thanks Mike Martinez.
