"Today, every inhabitant of this planet must contemplate the day when this planet may no longer be habitable. Every man, woman and child lives under a nuclear sword of Damocles, hanging by the slenderest of threads, capable of being cut at any moment by accident or miscalculation or by madness. The weapons of war must be abolished before they abolish us."
—John Fitzgerald Kennedy, September 1961
NATO VS WARSAW PACT
Take the role of NATO or Warsaw Pact commander-in-chief. Use your agents to stage coups and infiltrate countries in the heart of Europe. Send your military to quell insurgencies and combat enemy troops.
Escalate the game as you play. Perform intelligence operations during the initial Cold War stage. Bring the army and airforce to bear when you escalate to the Conventional War stage. Engage in a nuclear exchange with your enemy when you cross the Nuclear War threshold.
The game will be designed for 1 or 2 players. We will implement a special Solo Bot system for solitaire play. You will have several options to choose from, allowing for a gameplay duration between 2 and 4 hours. We will use comic-book illustration style throughout to lighten up this heavy subject.
