Seeing green and red? It must be Christmas!
Every year the world patiently (or not-so-patiently) counts down those 24 days to Christmas; there’s even calendars filled with little treats to help keep the young ones patient.
Then the big day rolls around and it’s filled with great food, great company and, of course, presents.
Christmas is the best time of year, and so to do our bit in celebrating we’re doing our own advent calendar. Each day we’ll unveil another game that has touched us in some way over the year – whether because it’s a work of interactive art, laugh-out-loud funny or just so weird it blew our mind.
So be sure to check back each day for a new game suggestion to fill your Christmas break!
The second game on our little countdown is also a strategy game, and you’re going to need the rest of the month to get through this one.
Sengoku, from strategy specialists, Paradox Interactive, is a massive, complex and deep game with plenty of historical authenticity to boot.
From the politicing, to the nation building and, of course the military conquests there hasn’t been a game that has captured the nuances of this tumultuous period of Japanese history so well before, and likely for some time to come. One of the most rewarding games of the year.
