Last week developer Tilted Mill
, a fantasy RPG-village building game that was the first of a series of planned downloadable original games. Today the developer wasted no time in announcing their next project: Mosby's Confederacy
. This tactical RTS game is set during the US Civil War and in a move that some might see as a bit unusual gives the player control of a squad of Confederate soldiers.
The company's press release for the game states, "In Mosby's Confederacy
you command small bands of skirmishers, scouts and guerilla fighters on opportunistic missions to scout, ambush, steal supplies and harass a larger and better armed force of Union soldiers, in this game of turn based strategy and real time tactical combat for the PC." The game also has you trying to win the respect of the local population as well. The game is based on the real life US Confederacy leader John Singleton Mosby, also known as the "Grey Ghost" for his ability to elude Union forces. The game's official web site has more info on the title which should be released later this year.
