1985: Under an Iron Sky - Well, boys, I reckon this is it - nuclear combat toe to toe with the Roosskies

Finally, 1985: Under an Iron Sky reached DEFCON 1 and is now available on our official site....phew!

Orders are being prepared for shipping as Warsaw Pact forces cross the Inner German Border in a last attempt to affirm Soviet control over Central Europe.

It has been an incredibly intense 18 months period, during which I've learned lots of things I've never imagined: digging into released CIA documents, endless discussions on T-80 weaknesses, storage of attack helicopters in controlled environment conditions, strategic sealift capacity, lithographic print angles, die-cutting average pressure, tricks of CMYK printing.

Also, prices of china-made 20-sided dice!

All this stuff will come handy as we prepare the second game, already in development. Can't tell much more right now, I don't want to open a gap in our already pathetic security procedures :)

Thanks everyone for the help, support and enthusiasm showed during this months.

Ah, right! commercial break!


Buy it now, before it's too late!

Here's the whole, final "1985" map; good for having an overall idea of what's going to happen....the size on your gaming table will be 95 x 170 cm, plus the 2 small maps on the East side.
I can't wait to have the final product ready and take some snapshots of everything.
