The Kickstarter project for the Gettysburg: The Tide Turns iPad and iPhone game has already hit its funding target. So we know this fantastic looking strategic wargame is coming and is already in development.
Now there’s one week left on the project and the developers, Shenandoah Studio, are asking for a little more help to reach some great ‘stretch goals’ for the project. Here they are:
$30k – Alternate History Scenario #1: “Stonewall” Jackson at Gettysburg
Would the tide have turned differently if Jackson were at Gettysburg? This scenario will explore the ramifications of this powerful commander’s presence at the battle.
$35k – Alternate History Scenario #2: The Cavalry Arrives!
Stuart’s cavalry was late to the battle, but what if they had arrived when expected. This scenario will explore that event and what the outcome may have been.
$40k – Alternate History Scenario #3: Hooker Retains Command
What if Meade had not replaced Hooker just before the battle? We will prepare a scenario that explores what may have happened and how the divisions and brigades would have performed.
I love the idea of these stretch goals. These would add wonderful depth to the game and add even more hours of great gameplay.
With their Battle of the Bulge game, which also started out as a Kickstarter project and which we included in our list of the Best iPad Apps of 2012, Shenandoah Studio has shown their ability to create an outstanding strategic wargame for the iPad. And they’re committed to bringing a range of wargames to the iPad and iOS. If you’re a fan of this sort of game on the iPad, it’s well worth looking at backing this project to help get those stretch goals met and just to support this great new iPad game studio.
