What is it?

Wargamer is an ambitious project to create a series of Historical Computer Wargames at Strategic and Tactical levels. Each new scenario will be built upon the previous ones, but will contain new program code for the specific details required for that scenario, whilst maintaining backwards compatibility with earlier scenarios.

The first scenario covers Napoleon's 1813 Campaign, and was released in Europe in September 1999.

  • A series of products that integrate together.
