Digital boardgamers celebrate the release of Mark H. Walker's latest design gem
Matrix Games sent over a press release announcing the availability of Mark H. Walker's Lock 'n Load: Heroes of Stalingrad, the most accurate possible digital representation of Lock’n Load's playability. The game features two, branching campaigns - one is playable from the Soviet side and one from the German point of view. The campaigns are story driven, using graphic novel-type panels to propel the plot. A turn-based game, Heroes of Stalingrad retains Lock 'n Load's engaging impulse system while adding features, such as flanking fire, hidden units, and residual machine gun fire, that would just be too fiddly for the boardgame.
The game was designed by Mark H. Walker, and programmed by elements of the team responsible for bringing you Panzer General Online.
