    I'm downloading it and I'll give you my impressions once I've played it a bit, but from the video, I can definitely say "brilliant sound effects, nice work!"
  4. No horses as of yet. But the game will include tanks as you can see from the video and the Gif. There will be a light tank and a heavy tank in the game. Both are support weapons.

    Thank you very much. I can't wait to read your impressions on the game.

    Introducing the latest unit: THE FLAMETHROWER
    WW1 saw the introduction of a brand new type of warfare. A never before seen pyrotechnic display of force.
    The long burst of flame from the flamethrower was both a dreadful and awe-inspiring sight at the exact same time.
    The flamethrower is still being worked on at the moment, you'll be able to get your hands on this unit in the next update.​

  7. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. The download links have been updated now. I will likely use tinyupload in the future. If you wouldn't mind, I'd love to get your thoughts on the demo. :)

    Nice looking game! The art style is quite unique.

    In terms of game mechanics, it actually looks almost identical to Warfare 1917, the Flash game. Not a bad thing though, since that was a great game. I do like that you can control individual snipers, unlike Warfare 1917.

    I also get the feeling that this is a mobile game. The number of popups is a bit worrying, it breaks the flow and immersion of the game. That's the only real criticism I have, keep up the good work!

    Congrats! Baron, a Youtuber with 350k subs, featured your game on his channel! That's like any indie dev's wet dream haha.

    It is a good game, although the timed pop-ups sometimes disturb playing (manual sniper or machine gun). Waiting for the full release

    Following ! Loved these type of games back in middleschool :) Looks really fun so far
  13. Thank you very much. I'm glad you like it so far. :D

    Thanks for your feedback! the pop-ups do ruin the flow, but they only show up the first time you play the game and never again. It is used to explain things to the player only when the player initiates those features themselves.

    Hahaha :cool:

    Yes Baron really loves Command Of War. Which is great for me as that provides much needed publicity for indie games. It's a cool working relationship I have no established with Baron over Twitter. His channel subscribers also LOVE!! the game so much and want to see more, which is a win/win for Baron and myself. His subs want more videos, so he gets more views, while I need the publicity :D

    Really good game, altough it would be great if it had a dificulty setting, and maybe more content like maps and so on. Great job so far! :)
    New unit:
    The trench Shotgun unit has been added, great at close quarters combat and assaulting enemy trenches
    Battlefield support: Add Mortars and trench phone to your first line support trench.
    Exploding flamethrowers!

    This game is good.I know one way you could get more players.You could put the game on steam and get more players.Really, most PC gamers only trust steam because of viruses.Anyways good luck in development and I'll be ready for the full game.Goodluck!

    Look, I really really want to play this game, but I'm not buying that headache that is seven zip.
    edit: if I click the link above it says that theres nothing there

    Last time I checked, 7Zip was free.

    And if you check further up the last post from the dev, there is another link to a Google Drive location. The Demo still appears to be there.

    Think the game has been abandoned, though.
