Gettysburg: The Tide Turns Hex-based Wargaming for iOS Comes to Kickstarter

Philadelphia, PA, July 2nd, 2013 – Today, the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg,  Shenandoah Studio is proud to announce  Gettysburg: The Tide Turns an iOS wargame, now seeking support on Kickstarter. 

Gettysburg captures this major Civl War conflict through a new hex-based wargame designed from the ground up for iOS by  Eric Lee Smith. Players command brigades of soldiers hoping to out-wit their opponents across a beautifully rendered battlefield.  Gettysburg  features the same level of playability and strategic depth that Shenandoah Studio is known for, as well as the polish and intuitive interface that made  Battle of the Bulge  so exciting to gaming veterans and so welcoming to those who had never played a wargame before.

In 2012, our Kickstarter project  Battle of the Bulge  launched to great critical* and popular success, thanks in large part to the support of our Kickstarter backers We are returning to Kickstarter to seek community help to implement  Gettysburg  to the same high standard. Our community is key to our success.
