Revolution Under Siege (RUS) announced!

Sat Aug 21, 2010 9:19 am

[CENTER][YOUTUBE]kHUwG4eHnn8[/YOUTUBE][/CENTER]

REVOLUTION UNDER SIEGE (RUS) is a simultaneous turn based historical wargame that puts you in charge of one of the factions that fought the Russian Civil War (1917-1923).

From a ragtag group of volunteers create the powerful Red Army, using all the weaponry and equipment at your disposal: planes, tanks, armoured trains, Cheka troops and the Konarmia (the famous Red Cavalry). Or, on the opposite side, gather all patriots and reform the elite divisions that shall save Holy Mother Russia. Can you succeed in crushing the Bolshevik hydra? Or will the People's Revolution prevail?

Several sides are playable: Trotsky’s Red Army, Denikin’s white counter-revolutionary forces of Southern Russia, Kolchak’s Siberians, Finnish from both sides, or the newly independent Polish troops led by Marshal Piłsudski.

The game uses the AGE engine, famous from AGEOD's American Civil War and Rise of Prussia, renown and awarded wargames.

Features:

  • A map of unrivalled precision from Poland to the Pacific Ocean.
  • Meet again our know-how for historical realism: hundreds of officers and units are faithfully transcript in the game.
  • Politics, requisitions, revolts, repression: Gain support of the population or pressure them with your political police.
  • Cleverly use the brand new weapons of the time: tanks, armoured trains and aircrafts.
  • Recruitment, organisation: Create massive armies from groups of volunteers and send them to ambitious manoeuvres and victory.
  • Can you capture Lenin or eliminate the different White leaders?
  • Use diplomacy to trigger foreign nations entry in the war. New allies will endlessly change the course of your games !
  • Find out unique campaigns covering each one of the years of the war in Russia, as well as the Finnish Civil War (1918) or the Russian-Polish war (1920). Or rewrite history with an ambitious « what if » scenario.

As someone who has read numerous books on this facinating Civil War, and created a monster RCW mod for STRATEGIC COMMAND, that unfortunately was unplayable because the AI took forever to complete a turn, I am thrilled with this release and will be looking foward to it....
Are their any beta slots available.... ;)

Relax tagwyn.

It is only a presentation video.

It does not mean that AGEod has become Bolshevik

Can you tell us how many playable factions will be in the game...??
If possible I would try the Kuban or the Don Cossacks or the Ukrainian Nationalists beside the Denikin White Army.

If it did, one might also say that AGEOD advocates slavery because you can play the Conferderates in AACW... :blink:

I was assuming that what tagwyn did not like was Communism or the pro-communist look of the video, perhaps I am wrong

Music played a huge role in this revolution so obviously it makes sense to use it to the fullest. The obvious choice for lead tune should be Varshavianka since it encompasses all scenarios in a nice way. It was created by Polish counter revolutionaries, translated into a pro communist song and also used by Finnish reds. Perfect choice for lead score :) .

Of course this game should have a nice mix of patriotic(non communist) and red songs. I expect the licensing from Red Army Orchestra to be fairly cheap?

I recently watched Admiral, it is a good way to get into the right mood for this game.

Admiral is a nice movie indeed. For the songs, quite a few have been provided to us directly by our Russian partner in the project :coeurs:

One of my pet subject! Will be a hit definitly.


I will upload in the next week a commented version of the ROP Austrian AI files in the ROP beta forum. The White AI could possibly be modelled from this considering the similarity of the strategical situations.

RIP Makhno.

Good about the music. One can still appreciate the fantastic music without supporting ideas. There is so much depht and sentiment in those pieces. I think it is impossible not to be moved by Katyusha(WW2) and similar pieces.

I have heard that the TV-series of Admiral is the one to see but I have yet to find it on DVD here. This allows much more explanation. Still, I think this is just about the only movie covering the White side in any kind of detail.

Next year should see Mannerheim also, hopefull Renny Harlin can give him a fair treatment :) .

You need Spotify in order for those links to work.

If it's available in your country then it is a no-brainer to use it ;) .

The Red Army Choir has entered the gaming business? :D

Anyway, this looks awsome. I'll be buying it for sure. I love the boardgame REDS, and play it whenever I can find a willing opponent. I've been wanting a pc version, and I think this is as close as I'll ever get to that.

Regarding distribution, is this going to be available through the Matrix Games store in the UK, or will I need to buy it straight from Ageod?
