'Supreme Ruler 2010' Goes Gold

by Rainier on April 28, 2005 @ 8:08 a.m. PDT

The year is 2010 and the Major Powers of the world as we currently know them have disintegrated into bickering economic and military regions. The United Nations has disappeared, and in its place an organization with far sharper teeth referred to simply as "The World Market" has taken its place. Individual Regions are left to fight for power to dominate their neighbors, their countries, their continents, and then the world.

"It's been five years, so we're obviously thrilled to finally see the game completed. We began this journey to make a strategy game that would appeal to a wide audience and that we ourselves would want to play. We have definitely succeeded," says David Thompson, Lead Designer and Partner at BattleGoat Studios.

"It is not very often that I am astounded by the scope of a project. Most games these days are cookie cutter variations of successful titles with subtle twists to differentiate them. However, BattleGoat took the path less traveled and succeeded in breaking new ground in the strategy gaming genre," say Jay Podilchuk, the Producer at Strategy First.

"We promised not to release Supreme Ruler 2010 before we felt the game was ready... I can honestly say it now is," continues Thompson.

In January 2010, due to a growing sense of international optimism, the World Market announced a new goal, "We are pleased to see that there is now some sense of global community reforming, but we feel it is important to accelerate this. As such, the existing regionalism must end...

It is uncertain whether this pronouncement had the intended effect. Over the next few months some regions began working together with neighbors and organized peaceful reunification votes. Yet other regions began to further isolate themselves and begin military buildups. It became apparent to many that no matter how benign the objective, it could not be achieved without great cost. What would happen next is anyone's guess.

Supreme Ruler 2010 is a groundbreaking Economic, Political, and Military Strategy game for Windows PC's. It supports Single and Multi-Player (up to 16 players) in either "Real Time" or "Turn Based" modes.
