We are currently in pre-release of a new Turn Based Strategy Game called Master of Tactics.
Details are at

And it has been written in Java!!! Its designed as a multi-player game that can be played in an applet (no
install required) - but we are currently releasing it in standalone single player format.

We are looking for some volunteers to do some play testing and give feedback. If you are interested
visit the web site and contact us.

Hi there,

I don't have time for play testing, but I do have some tips for your website.

Download page (
- COMMING SOON is spelled wrong, write "COMING SOON" instead. Maybe ask someone with excellent English skills to go through your website and fix some (minor) language issues?
- The feature list below both download buttons contains red signs next to "No DRM", "No Activation", "No Install Restrictions", making it appear as if these are features the game misses. Instead, I would place a green next to all things for the paid version, and some of the free version.
- Consider embedding the Java runtime environment in your installer, thus removing the Java requirement. I love game development in Java, but users hate to have to install Java before playing your game. There's a few options for that: make a game EXE using launch4j and use the "bundle JRE" option to bundle a JRE with your game so the users do not have to install one. Alternatively, but expensive for starting developers, is using Excelsior JET to compile the game into a native package that does not need Java at all. It's technically a bit difficult to do but may be well worth it if you want to sell your game.

For the rest, the game looks interesting and the website looks good. Good luck with this!

Is there a real download?
I was'nt able to find one or an applet.
Maybe you could reduce the text on the website so it is clearer?

However, the screenshots look good.
