New Game From ProSim

February 16th, 2009 by Troy Goodfellow · 4 Comments · ProSim, Shrapnel, Wargames

The ProSim line of wargames is one of those series that I love to play for a month or two before I move on to something less intense. These are serious wargames for people who like serious real time action, assuming you define action as icons moving on a satellite map.

So it’s great news for me that there is a new one. Battle Group Commander: Episode One takes two modern armies and sticks them on Salisbury Plain. Why there? Who knows.

The game is designed by Gary Bezant, the man behind the earlier ProSim game, The Falklands War: 1982. (The Shrapnel press release calls the Falklands game “controversial” and I have no idea why that would be true.) It also goes for the very low price of fifteen dollars.

The publisher promises a more “noob friendly” game than the previous titles in the ATF/AATF line, and here’s hoping that’s the case. I think this is a developer that could use more exposure and a wider wargaming audience than it has had to this point.
