Measuring Up: Supreme Ruler 1936

By Adam Smith on October 23rd, 2013.

Of all the times to be in charge of one of the world’s nations, 1936 has to be one of the worst. Terrible things are afoot, and even the most noble decisions will likely lead to destruction and death. A terrifying time to be a leader in reality but a perfect setting for “a real time geopolitical strategy game” and that’s precisely what Supreme Ruler 1936 is. With single player and multiplayer campaigns covering the build-up to WWII and the conflict itself, it also has a sandbox mode that allows the player to control almost any nation in the world.

Supreme Ruler: Cold War, the latest in the Supreme Ruler series of strategy games, is an extremely large and intricate Cold War-era war title, featuring lots of diplomacy and a global conflict map which can be played as a giant sandbox game of domination. Heavy stuff. So it’s admirable to see its developers, Battlegoat Studios, sexing things up with a trailer full of repurposed newsreel footage and a rock-n-rolling soundtrack. Diplomacy! Menu-sliders! Tiny tanks moving along roads! Sexxxxyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!

Ahem. It could be good. No release date yet, but “Q2″ this year, for sure.
