battlegoat studiosBattleGoat Studios is thrilled to announce the release of their latest Real Time Geopolitical Strategy – Wargame Supreme Ruler Ultimate for PC and Mac through Steam and other vendors for SRP of $29.99. The pinnacle of fourteen years of development on the Supreme Ruler series of Real Time Geo-Political Military Strategy Games for PC and Mac.  Supreme Ruler Ultimate incorporates the stories, campaigns, scenarios, and features from our previous releases and expands on them in our improved game engine. See the end of this article for The Cavechild’s impressions on this new release.

Take control of any nation in the world from World War II through the Cold War and into the near future as our world lurches from one crisis to the next!  Play historical or modern campaigns with specific objectives, attempt one of the many Set-Piece Scenarios for a shorter game, or customize your gaming experience by picking any nation in the various era sandboxes and choosing your own preferred Victory Condition.  With so many options to choose from, Supreme Ruler Ultimate provides virtually unlimited replayability!

Lead Designer and Co-Founder David Thompson commented, “This title represents fourteen years of what has been a labor of love.  Supreme Ruler Ultimate is the culmination of all the design revisions and content we’ve created since forming the studio in 2000 and there should be something for everyone, whether they want to re-play WWII or take over the world from a near future Scotland or an independent Texas!”

BattleGoat’s Lead Programmer and Co-Founder George Geczy added, “Supreme Ruler Ultimate brings together our vision for a truly epic strategy game that encompasses some of the most turbulent times of human history – World War II, the Cold War, and the challenges we face in the near future.  We’re proud to have made one of the most detailed and comprehensive series of strategy games ever created.”  Previous BattleGoat titles in the Supreme Ruler series are Supreme Ruler 2010, Supreme Ruler 2020. Supreme Ruler Cold War, and Supreme Ruler 1936.

Thompson went on to answer questions about the future of the series. “Right now we are quite happy with what the Supreme Ruler series has achieved.  Ultimate gets us to what we originally envisioned and we will continue to supply additional content for our players and support to our modding community.  While we do not currently have plans for another Supreme Ruler stand-alone title, we will still update and enhance the game based on community feedback.  Everyone at BattleGoat feels indebted to our players and we continue to appreciate the support they provide us!”

The Cavechild ventured out of his preferred RPG, FPS, Driving, Fighting and RTS game genres to take Supreme Ruler Ultimate for a spin or two; here are his thoughts – keeping in mind that this is not the type of game he plays on a regular basis.

“Supreme Ruler Ultimate is a very in-depth, political, tactical strategy game. To be quite blunt, I personally did not enjoy it. However! This game is one of the MOST amazing games to make you think as a warlord-esque type person/politician.

The graphics are very basic and the game play has a MASSIVE learning curve. I played for about 2 hours, trying to figure it out and I was slowly getting there. It was fun to learn! You can build MANY buildings for transportation, military, industrial and MANY more! You can build in thousands of towns, along the coast line, set up defenses and SO much more. I don’t quite know how to explain this game to appeal to a mass group of people because to me, this is a very unique and acquired taste of genre, so I will simply put it like this;

If basic graphics don’t bother you, if you have the time to learn a very difficult game that uses the mind in very, unique ways, if you enjoy strategic, turn based, army building, industrial building, country planning, taking over the world bad-assery, then this game is for you.

Over all, since it’s not my kind of game, I would not play it in the long run, but with my personal play style aside, I would give this game a very high recommendation for people who enjoy political, strategy, turn based games.”
