The European Fortress is in danger - A new supply-oriented wargame is arriving on PC
Company: Matrix Games
Arlington, VT, 25th February, 2014.

After years of development, the brand new game by Frank Hunter – famous designer of Campaigns on the Danube and Guns of August – is finally out!

During World War II the Germans have been trying to fortify the whole of occupied Europe in order to prevent counterattacks from the Allied troops. Their propaganda named this defense system “Fortress Europe”. But even the biggest stronghold could have breaches, and soon the German forces had to face with a large scale amphibious and airborne operation in the South of Europe.

Piercing Fortress Europa is a turn-based strategy game which covers the campaign of the Western Allies against the Axis forces in Italy between 1943 and 1945. From the Sicily beaches to the last major line of defense in Northern Italy, the player will have to lead his men to victory through six challenging campaigns.

Unlike most wargames, Piercing Fortress Europa is not focused on army movements and actions but on supply. Although strength and disruption are important, the player should particularly pay attention to resources and their allocation. Organizing a major invasion is a logistical nightmare, and the player will have to take the right supply decisions to support some of the most complicated military operations of the war.
