Mosby's Confederacy Announced

Tilted Mill Entertainment announces Mosby's Confederacy, a game mixing turn-based strategy and real-time tactical combat to recreate the exploits of Confederate general John Singleton Mosby, "one of the Civil War's most interesting and dynamic leaders." Here's word on the game, which is due later this fall: "Missions and their objectives are randomized, so you'll need to approach each game differently, carefully planning your strategy for success. You draw your soldiers from local towns, then through hard won battlefield experience transform them into fighting men – scouts, cavalry, rangers and riflemen. Between battles you'll invest in local towns, so they can serve as field hospitals, stables and munitions caches, helping to keep your forces fit and able to fight, and remain confident and supportive of your ongoing efforts, by willingly supplying men to fight for your cause - and as the war rages on this becomes increasingly challenging."

The Conferderate went to war with the north because they wanted slavery. I'm sure that part won't be in this game.

Well, there was more to it than that. While slavery was indeed the main focal point, the true motivator the South's secession was for state's rights. Southern states believed that the Federal government was over-stepping it's bounds and interfering in what they believed should be decided in the State government - Slavery being the biggest single issue.

As far as that being in the game, just because a certain topic is unsavory does not mean it should be excluded from the game; to the contrary, a mature and objective representation of such things can add much educational value to the game and give cause for inflection. These are things that games can aspire to do but so often don't.
