Gettysburg: Armored Warfare Cinemotions

Jim had a look at 64-player RTS Gettysburg: Armored Warfare last week and now, thanks to a couple of videos of the game that I've managed to hunt down, you can pretend to be his eyes by watching bits of the game yourself. The first video dates back to March 2011, at which point the game hadn't been loudly announced at a convention and therefore didn't exist in any form, so let's assume time has been impossibly sundered to put that there. The second is from last week's Paradox convention and shows the impressive map editor along with some gameplay.

Do not watch this next footage on a screen angled exactly as the screen in the video or the third dimension will fall over, clutching its side as if it has a terrible stitch, and we'll be out of both time and space. Not good. I bet something psychedelic and possibly quasi-spiritual would happen, as if Tree of Life and 2001 had produced an offspring. That'd go on for a while and without any temporal structure 'a while' would last bloody ages.

I'm looking forward to trying this and shall begin growing the correct moustache in anticipation. For more details, head back to Jim's words.
