Supreme Ruler The Great War now warring supremely

Great War! Great Huh!

The revival of vintage strategy game Supreme Ruler continues today with the launch of Supreme Ruler The Great War [official site]. After reviving the '80s strategy game with Supreme Ruler 2010 then jumping across history with 2020, the Cold War, and 1936, then rolling them all together in Supreme Ruler Ultimate, developers Battlegoat Studios are now visiting the war that actually, really, in fact, wasn't that great.

This is a subject I know little about, other than the fact that the collected wardads of RPS have previously muttered "Coo yeah Supreme Ruler, I'll rule that war supremely all right." So let's go over to Battlegoat Studios for their self-flattering blurb:

"Expanding on sixteen years of development on the Supreme Ruler series of Real Time Geo-Political Military Strategy Games for PC and Mac. Supreme Ruler The Great War brings players back to 1914, to a world that has little understanding of the devastation that will be unleashed as long-time alliances and animosities drive ever-growing conflicts. Whether leading a major power or a minor nation, players can experience the tensions of a world descending into chaos. Campaigns follow paths similar to historical events while allowing players control of their own destiny, with the opportunity to change those events and chart their own course. As well, the ever popular Sandbox mode allows players to customize their gaming experience by picking any nation and choosing their own preferred Victory Condition. With the further option of multiplayer matches, Supreme Ruler The Great War provides incredible amounts of replayability."

It's like Supreme Ruler but World War 1, yeah?

Supreme Ruler The Great War is out on Steam for £14.99/17,99€/$19.99.
