Montreal, Canada. April 28, 2005. Publisher Strategy First and developer BattleGoat are pleased to announce that Supreme Ruler 2010, the groundbreaking economic, political and military strategy game for the Windows PC, has gone gold. Supreme Ruler 2010 will be available at all major retailers on May 10, 2005.
"It's been five years, so we're obviously thrilled to finally see the game completed. We began this journey to make a strategy game that would appeal to a wide audience and that we ourselves would want to play. We have definitely succeeded," says David Thompson, Lead Designer and Partner at BattleGoat Studios.
"It is not very often that I am astounded by the scope of a project. Most games these days are cookie cutter variations of successful titles with subtle twists to differentiate them. However, BattleGoat took the path less traveled and succeeded in breaking new ground in the strategy gaming genre," say Jay Podilchuk, the Producer at Strategy First.
"We promised not to release Supreme Ruler 2010 before we felt the game was ready... I can honestly say it now is," continues Thompson.
About Supreme Ruler
In January 2010, due to a growing sense of international optimism, the World Market announced a new goal, "We are pleased to see that there is now some sense of global community reforming, but we feel it is important to accelerate this. As such, the existing regionalism must end...
It is uncertain whether this pronouncement had the intended effect. Over the next few months some regions began working together with neighbors and organized peaceful reunification votes. Yet other regions began to further isolate themselves and begin military buildups. It became apparent to many that no matter how benign the objective, it could not be achieved without great cost. What would happen next is anyone's guess.
Supreme Ruler 2010 is a groundbreaking Economic, Political, and Military Strategy game for Windows PC's. It supports Single and Multi-Player (up to 16 players) in either "Real Time" or "Turn Based" modes.
