"MAKING HISTORY" puts players in control of global conflict, combining a highly sophisticated AI with rich historical detail. The game is unique among World War II games in the way it challenges gamers to achieve economic and diplomatic victory, not just military success.

"Strategy gamers and war buffs are going to love this game" says Richard Therrien, Vice President of Development for Strategy First. "MAKING HISTORY is a strong game and its level of quality and gameplay surpasses other strategy titles. It's refreshing to have a game with real depth that is supported by an interface that does not get in the way."

"We're incredibly pleased with the response we've gotten from hundreds of Beta testers and the thousands of players who have downloaded our demo," says Dave McCool, President of Muzzy Lane Software. "This is a fun and challenging game and we look forward to making it available to the general market soon."
