Publisher/developer Strategy First proudly announced today that their real-time tactical game, Nexagon Deathmatch, has shipped to retail stores in North America. “This is a completely original game for us and we couldn’t be happier to have it come out of our very own development studio,” says Don McFatridge, President of Strategy First. “There is no game on the market quite like Nexagon and I know gamers will love its uniqueness!”

Fast-forward to the future

In comes the ideal entertainment solution – Nexagon Deathmatch. A concept concocted by the heads of The Network as a perfect way to spice up a mundane existence… Watch as combatants hit the mortal arena and fight for the ultimate prize.

Jump into the fast-paced action of Nexagon Deathmatch – where incarcerated criminals control fierce armies with the goal of destroying their opponents. Their prize: Freedom!
