Making History is an amazing turn-based strategy game in the style of war board games like Risk. It includes several game scenarios, each one of them set at different critical moments during the previous years to WWII.

This game beats any other strategy adventure I've ever seen so far. It really makes you feel like you're rewriting History. You can choose any nation in the world and take any decisions on how to manage resources, establish diplomatic relationships with other countries, create alliances or even declare war and try to conquer a foreign territory. In a way, Making History enables you not only to create your own version of History, but also to test historical hypotheses and check, for example, what would have happened if the Republicans had won the Civil War in Spain.

That said, I strongly recommend you to follow the 30-minute tutorial, because this is a true strategy game with loads of detail and many elements to take care of. It's a pity that the demo doesn't allow you to save the game or play multiplayer games, but still it gives an excellent overall view of the game. Really worth a try!

An excellent turn-based strategy game that challenges you to rewrite History in your own way.
