Partisans is a real-time tactical strategy. This game is about soviet partisans and their activity during World war II. It’s focused on harsh reality in those times when many people became reluctant heroes, and every feat required its price, and sometimes this price was extremely high.
- Tactics: Partisan war is a sabotage war. Forget about open fights, that are usual in games about World War II, in which a lone ranger breaks through thousands of enemies. Discover a multifaceted tactical game in which intelligence, patience and caution get the win.
- Characters: You’ll have to become the commander of partisans, to lead a squad and to form the relations system. The main character finds himself in the rear of German troops and gathers a squad of local residents and the surviving Red Army’s soldiers. Complicated moral choices and problems with discipline in the squad – all these things are part of the commander’s everyday life.
- Metagame: The game combines several modes: real-time missions, base management and strategic campaign management. In strategic mode you’ll have to open new areas on the global map, send the partisans for scouting and select missions for the squad.
The game shows the war from a new, poorly explored angle. However, it is not a historical simulator, Partisans offers a unique interpretation of those times events. The game shows partisans everyday life, which is full of cold, hunger and wounds. Still, there is room for joy as well. Players would have to make tough choices, for example, they’ll have to decide whether to help civilians and betray their position or to walk past and stay unnoticed. The game gives opportunities to prove oneself in a fight, to overcome the superior forces of the enemy using cunning and mother wit, and to leave the field when the situation is really bad.
