Want to Join an Existing iPad Development Team?


If you are an experienced programmer/developer, there's a potential opportunity to get involved with one of the teams creating iPad (and probably other platform) versions of GMT games. One of our development teams is looking to add one or two new programmer/developers. Here's a note from their leader, Rob Masson, with more details:

We are a team of developers, sound engineers, graphic artists, and producers who are aiming to change the face of digital gaming and need one or two skilled developers to help out with our current and future projects. We need people with one or more of the following skill sets:

   - iOS Development
   - Android Development
   - Corona / Lua Development

New P500 Additions!


We have two new P500 boxed game additions to the list this time, both by talented designer Hermann Luttmann. I'm really excited to have both of these games in our line! I love Gettysburg games, and seeing a regimental game on one of the most pivotal actions of the battle that I can actually finish in an evening definitely has me wanting it. As for the Metz game, I only have one Franco-Prussian War game, and wish I understood the period better. So I'm looking forward to this one and its multiple scenarios as well, especially because it shares some mechanics with Hammerin' Sickles. On that note, be sure to check out the Blind Swords Chit Pull System (described in some detail in each write-up) that Hermann uses in both of these games - it is really cool!
I encourage you to use our P500 list to pre-order these games (and any others on the page that appeal to you). Just click the banners or links below to go to each game's P500 page for more details and ordering info. Enjoy!
