Some New Companies On The Horizon – Tuesday Newsday 3/30/21

Every week, #TuesdayNewsday brings you the headlines in wargaming and the strategy gaming world  >>>

This Week’s Headline:

Lately there have been a few announcements pop up in the wargaming media ecosystem announcing some new wargaming companies joining the fray.

  • SNAFU Games are a retailer out of Spain and now publishing some of their own games.
  • Catastrophe Games  just finished kickstarting their second game and have several more on the drawing board.

These guys are now joining other recent newcomers like Cadet Games in keeping the wargaming world a vibrant, ever-changing place.

Newly Released This Week:

  • Matrix Games officially unleashed Gary Grigsby’s War In The East 2 last week.  Our first impressions are here.
  • Looking for something different?  Hexasim are selling La Belle Epoque, which covers the time between the Franco-Prussian War and WWI.  Think of it as “Victorian Diplomacy” with a lot of overseas territories. The art looks nice, but the block graphics are insanely crowded.  Stateside, you can order from Quarterdeck International.
  • Need some terrain for a fantasy game?  Antenocitis Workshop has this cool 28mm stuff called an “Office Set” from a long, long-ago time when people actually congregated into close-quarters workplaces for their daily tasks and shared refreshment from upright, cooled communal watering holes.
  • Compass Games started shipping the 2nd Ed of The Lamps Are Going Out and we still want one.
  • Something that’ll make Ardwulf’s day – GURPS has a new Realm Management supplement out to help you with all of your “run the kingdom” sorts of needs.
  • Modiphius released a pair of new books for their Judge Dredd / World of 2000AD series, Strontium Dog and Rogue Trooper.
