Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe is a deeply immersive turn based strategy game covering the greatest conflict in modern history.

From this unique perspective, you will be the supreme mastermind behind the entire conduct of operations, deciding the priorities, the strategies, and coordinating your global efforts to win the war!

Fury Software's aim with the Strategic Command series has always been to recreate World War II in a deep yet very accessible manner. Experienced wargamers will find much to love in it!
The ultimate goal of Imperial Japan is to become the dominant power in the western Pacific. In December 1941, a carefully planned strategy is set in motion through a series of major offensives, including a carrier strike on the US naval base at Pearl Harbor. The shock of these surprise attacks is intended to cripple the Allied forces, giving the Japanese army and navy the time needed to establish total hegemony over their opponents.
Rising Sun puts the player in command of the Imperial Navy - built around a powerful fleet of battleships and aircraft carriers, as well as the Imperial Army - hardened from years of war with the Chinese. Managing the limited resources available to build a well-balanced force of unique units such as the lethal A6M Zero fighter aircraft and the mighty Yamato battleship class will be the key to a successful outcome of the Japanese offensive. From the beginning of the campaign, starting with the air raid against Pearl Harbor, the initiative lays in the hands of Japan, but as Allied resistance stiffens, only a commander able to achieve decisive victories can keep up the momentum and fulfill Japan's imperial dreams.
Including key historical battles, the "what-if" invasion of Australia and many unique Japanese weapon designs and prototypes, Rising Sun offers a unique experience set in the Pacific Theatre of WW2.
A very brief update today, just to report that I have finished some minor but important refinements to the GUI of the game, as shown above (with a few placeholder text strings,) and will soon begin work on some core AI functions. These include the ability for the player to issue orders to friendly units. Once this is in place there should be enough for me to distribute a very basic but playable version of the game.
A brief tutorial on how to encircle with Panzer Divisions. We will be using the Road to Minsk scenario. The goal of the encirclement is to prevent the Soviet units from retreating, or routing, and being available to the Soviet side at a later date. This will help the Axis player later on in the campaign when the Soviets are swamping you with manpower.
As the Soviets you can see how important it is to prevent encirclement, and how you can snap the trap shut on overextended Panzer divisions.
