Games Labs are working on a new single player naval warfare game. Thus you will have both a strategic and tactic layer. Not much has been put out about the strategic layer. In the tactical layer you will be free to design your own ships.

All made with the same parts:

And some more pretty 3D models:

Game is still in Alpha.

So kinda like a Total War style double-layered strategy game? Could be tasty! 8-)

They “teased” this concept I think late last year to get people’s opinions about it.


They can make a magnificent game, (graphically speaking) as they did with Naval Action....but the gameplay itself, and the devs interaction with the players turned out to be a shitshow.

I think one of the Devs is Greek and the other Ukrainian. I was advised by one of the folks who tests for them to keep your comments/recommendations short and concise if you want them to be understood.

It's a small indie outfit. They keep things very close to the vest.

IIRC GameLabs is based in the Ukraine.

I think that the lead developer for Naval Action is also Ukrainian.

When the game review ratings for Naval Action on Steam started to dip they would hint/promise to award some in game freebies (like a premium ship( to the players if the ratings would improve (or threaten not to do some of the promised/upcoming improvements if the ratings continued to drop). It was shit like this that soured many of the users on the game.

Now I am not saying GameLabs will do the same thing with this game, but...
