**prays for some intense LAN action not just online**

@BombsAway16 Unfortunately the churn machine does make money, and the desire to make money does tend to stifle the creative process. This is why we have so many 'blockbuster action' films with guns, cars and things exploding in slow motion. Not that Carrier Command is that new and innovative, it was available in 1988 and Hostile Waters (2001) was a spiritual successor. Still looking forward to it, though.

Played the original on my Amiga 1000 and loved it! Can't wait for this to come out.

Holly mother of god this is like a dream come true for me, this is my fav game of all times (yes i am THAT old) i used to play this on my XT on an ambar monitor hercules graphics and for what i've seen in this video this new installment it's pretty much the same as the original one. For the ones who didn't understand how the game is played, you basically controll a carrier on a HUGE map with tons of islands, and it's basically a race to control the whole map or destroy the enemy carrier and you advance conquering all the islands (either deploying automated bases on deserted islands, wich can serve as communication relays, supply depots or factories) or, when you find an island populated by the enemy carrier you need to destroy it with your arsenal wich you need to build up by researching and manufacturing. As i said you control the carrier but also you control the aircrafts and the amphibious veichles on it and you can automate them all if you want or manually control them. It's a DEEP deep strategy game with a really interesting action factor. I still can't believe a 1989 game was this good and deep and fun and it was only like 200kbites big.

I haven't seen the Nvidia logo appear in a video like it did here in years. Wow.. For the video.. I don't understand how the game will be played, however, it does look great and it has grabbed my attention. I'm interested in seeing more of this game!

If it wasn't for these small eastern european developers coming out with new and innovative games, there wouldn't be much to look forward to. The US and Britain seem to be stuck in a timewarp, churning out the same old crap and wondering why they are not making any return on their investment

Wow looks amazing, these are the games we need, where you decide exactly how you want to play, FPS, strategy, aircraft? Wish i'd known of similar games before this.

@GarGx1 Hostile Waters. A great game; too bad nothing ever came of that sequel hook at the end of the game.
