My New Game
in 1986 I wrote a computer game (and subsequently Two postal games) based on the original Empire mainframe game. I loved that game. I played it once or twice in 1982 and got a copy of the rules which I cherished until 1986 when I developed a Speccy and CBM-64 version of it called Dark Empire. You can see details of that here Dark Empire
The two postal games were Casus Belli (16 player Postal) and Warlord (100 Player Postal), both written in Turbo Pascal. Warlord is still run by KJC Games and bless em, my name is still in the credits in the Ms Word rules that you can download from here Word Rules for Warlord, a game created in 1990!
So I've decided, I am going to resurrect Casus Belli as a desktop game. It will hopefully end up as a mobile phone game as well. I have 90% of the source code written in Delphi and 75% translated to C++ though no libraries (SDL, DirectX) have been used yet. After that I want to create a C# version and then a Java/J2me, and if I can learn Actionscript and Flash a Flash version as well.
This won't be a quick project - I won't be working on it fulltime but will add new bits too it now and then via a series of articles on this website. I've even registered casusbelli.eu for it and that will hopefully be the Flash version. I'll be documenting this as I go along and will release source code now and then.
