Maybe known by some because of the splendid online presence, but still missing a thread on this board, so I though I make one.
A Grand Strategy game about the Civil War that provides a lot detail, more than one would expect on this scale.

Webpage:
http://www.grandtactician.com/thecivilwar/index.html

Meanwhile a release in the Summer of 2020 is the goal.

Despite the close release there are still very few videos, nonetheless these show a good portion of the game and give a good and promising impression:

Yep, and almost too good to be true. I wonder if I miss something that spoils my hope that this game could replace more or less all the strategic games we currently support.

Anyhow if it meets expectations & is a success I would live to see this for the Napoleonic era.

You would think that they would be able to use the "engine" for the Napoleon era, but the economic and geographic scale would be much more conplex
