All our games are now Vista Compatible!

By Rick,

We've gone through almost our entire library of games and made sure they're all Vista-compatible! This fixes a few Vista-only bugs, while also making sure that all the games work properly in the new Games Explorer and Media Center.

This was a bit more work than you might expect. If you're a game developer (or aspiring game developer) and you're looking for some code or information about how to do this, we've written up a fair bit about it here, where you can also find a plug-in for the NSIS Install System that will do most of the heavy-lifting for you.

Oh, and be sure to click on the image above and browse through a few of our new images. We had a bit of fun with the Vista ads in our local mall! Continued →

Vlogosphere, Part II

By Rick,

We went to the Toronto Independent Games Conference last week, and I took the camera along with me. Do you want to see our trip to the conference, and maybe some very quick shots of Hegemony? Be sure to check out the new video.

Also, I'd like to know what you want me to do for the next video. In the spirit of YouTube, I'm disabling the comments for this news post (yes, I'm capable of subtle jokes too!), so if you want to tell me what to do, post it on the YouTube page!

We've entered the vlogosphere!

By Rick,

We visited a foley studio yesterday to capture some sounds for Hegemony, and Rob brought along his video camera. As is to be expected, we ended up with a video blog, or as the hip kids call it, a vlog. And a rather amateurish one at that.

Check it out on YouTube. Enjoy!

This is the third in a series of posts that will discuss a broad range of topics relating to "Hegemony: Philip of Macedon". This post will introduce the Peltast unit.

Peltasts are fast, mobile light infantry suited to rough terrain and irregular combat. They wear a helmet and carry the pelta, a small crescent shaped shield. Peltasts use javelins at range and melee with a short spear or dagger. As an auxiliary force in battle, peltasts can skirmish to disrupt enemy formations and threaten flanks. Continued →

New Screenshots & Logistics Overview

By LDAjim,

This is the second in a series of posts that will discuss a broad range of topics relating to Hegemony: Philip of Macedon. This post will give an overview of logistics: the management of supply and replacements.

Activities such as camping and the burning of fields are integral to logistics in "Hegemony: Philip of Macedon". Camp to conserve supply and replace losses. Burn fields to deprive the enemy of crops, through punitive raids or a scorched earth defensive policy.

By LDAjim,

This is the first in a series of posts that will discuss a broad range of topics relating to Hegemony: Philip of Macedon. This post will introduce the Hoplite unit.

Hoplites form the main infantry battleline of the Greek City-State armies. They wear a helmet, greaves and breastplate and carry a 3-foot diameter shield that provides excellent missile defense. Hoplites advance into battle in close order formations, often charging the last few feet to maximize the impact phase of melee combat. Their main weapon is a 10-foot thrusting spear, used overhand. They also carry a short sword as a secondary weapon. Continued →

New Hegemony Video

By Rick,

Like the monolith, it has finally arrived: a new Hegemony video. We've yet to find ourselves in the office beating each other over the head like untrained monkeys, but we hope you'll enjoy it. This video shows off some of our new high-poly models, buildings, army management, and our map of Greece.

We even have a high definition version for you video afficianados. It should be noted that the file size of our HD video is approximately our target for the download size of the entire game.
