Rich, Detailed Naval Warfare Simulation
Once upon a time, well-researched, detailed military simulations were a mainstay of the PC games industry--rarely best-sellers, but with a hard core of enthusiastic fans. Many were published by companies like Talonsoft--which was run, not coincidentally, by Jim Rose, co-designer of this game. Computer wargames have today almost disappeared from the store shelves, as the conventional market has narrowed its focus to potential best-sellers.
Luckily, companies like Storm Eagle are working to keep computer wargames alive, moving primarily to online distribution, and this is an excellent example.
