The Strategist released

Oxeye Game Studio has released The Strategist, a turn-based strategy shareware game with single-player campaigns and online multi-player support. Based on its highly optimized "daisy" engine for Mac OS X market, players take on the role as the Union's youngest and most promising new Strategist, who is just about to complete his training when the camp is struck by poisonous gas missiles. The player's friend, 'Strategist Ricks', is kidnapped and the whole base is shattered by the unexpected attack. To fight back the player has to build new command centers, harbours and industries, and gather information about who the enemies are and where they can be found. The task is not easy and filled with both treachery and deceit."

The company says that the gameplay offers strategic decisions and requires careful planning and troop movements in order to win; it also claims that the game has a fresh way of handling turn actions, which are used for attacking, building new developments and for special commands such as "Chopper Transport", "Propaganda" and "Blitz". The game supports up to 10 players and offers computer-controlled opponents for single-player challenges.

The Strategist is distributed as shareware and is priced at $20 (USD). All registered customers are entitled to free priority technical support. It requires Mac OS X v. 10.3.9 or later.
