Commander: Conquest of the Americas demo

By Quintin Smith on July 26th, 2010.

I took screenshots of what the game really looks like but couldn't bring myself to put them up instead.

Paradox Interactive’s latest strip of historical beef jerky, Commander: Conquest of the Americas, has a brand spanking new demo available for download at FilePlanet. CotA casts players as a European power scrabbling for colonies in the New World at the start of the 16th century, meaning it’s all turning a profit while remembering to fight your wars. Or the other way around, if you’re a jerk. I’ve had a quick look and it seems plenty engaging in a biscuity, Paradoxy, straight-laced sort of way, so why not give it a shot?

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.
