WARMACHINE: Tactics Full Release

Privateer Press Interactive announced the full release of WARMACHINE: Tactics on Steam for Windows and OS X, following an early access period for this turn-based tactical combat game. "It seems like just yesterday that we were celebrating an overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter campaign for WARMACHINE: Tactics," said WARMACHINE creator and Privateer Press founder Matt Wilson. "I am humbled and thankful that today we can celebrate bringing the WARMACHINE world to life on PCs and Macs, for all the WARMACHINE miniatures gamers who played out the action of the tabletop in their imaginations, and for all the video gamers who will experience the WARMACHINE world for the first time." Here's the news:
Privateer Press Interactive announced that WARMACHINE: Tactics is moving out of Early Access, and the full version is now available on Steam for $39.99. As part of this full version release, WARMACHINE: Tactics now includes a full 20-mission single player campaign in addition to its robust skirmish and multiplayer modes.

Based on the award-winning WARMACHINE tabletop miniatures game, WARMACHINE: Tactics is a turn-based, squad-level strategy game for PC and Mac developed in cooperation with WhiteMoon Dreams and published by Privateer Press Interactive. The game has been enthusiastically received by Early Access players and critics, with Nerd Reactor calling it “a blast” and the Dread Gazebo calling it “sheer joy.” WARMACHINE: Tactics funded through Kickstarter, entered Early Access on Steam 10 months from the close of the campaign, and reached full version release after just 15 months.

As was said earlier, faithful reproductions of table-top games on PC do not make happy gamers in most cases.

I agree 100% with the Space Hulk Ascension remake being much better than the tabletop copy that the first game was.

The moral is simple. If you like tabletop gaming, do tabletop gaming. If you want to play PC games, expect PC game mechanics that make for smoother and more intuitive play.

Tabletop gamers are not all going to turn into PC gamers and buy your reproduction game on PC. If they are who you made the game for, you're going to lose financially. That's obviously not the ideal situation for a game studio to shoot for.
