That’s a pun, you see, because it’s made by Finnish game studio Nitro Games, but it’s also finished and available to pre-order. Anyway, Paradox Interactive’s latest historical naval war and management game, Commander: Conquest Of The Americas, is actually released on July 30th, and it’s the semi-sequel to East India Company. I didn’t really get on particularly well with EIC, despite feeling like it got the diplomacy stuff right, and the sea-battle stuff mostly right. I just sort of tired of the grind of it, and left feeling unpleased. Anyway, it clearly made enough headway and charmed enough of you lot to get this follow up, which sees familiar perfidious European powers vying to take control of the Americas. Bloody bastards. Trailer below, if you’re interested.
