School is a Battlefield: Battlefield Academy

Chocks away! Apparently!

No demo yet, but the just released Battlefield Academy does seem at least its own thing, which is always intriguing. Well, if not totally own thing, a continuation of something which was its own thing. Battle Academy was a 2004 webgame for the BBC – which is still available – and Slitherine has made a stand alone expanded commercial re-imagining with the aid of John Buckley, Military Historian at the University of Wolverhampton. Multiple theatres, accessible style, lots of details, multiplayer and modding – full feature list on the site, where you can also buy it. A little footage showing some basic tactics follows…

(The title is from “School is a battlefield for your heart” from top 90s cancelled teen-drama My (So-Called) Life. Which didn’t fit, which makes me sad. Sigh.)
