A short entry for a SSG title for the C64 that was advertised in its 1988-1989 catalog as coming soon. With thanks to Joseph Tsai for highlighting.

The game was also due for release for the Apple II and IBM/Tandy computers. The description for the title was as follows:

“For the twenty years from 1796 to 1815, the little Corsican general dominated European politics as no one had before or since. His dynamic military genius revolutionized the face of battle as his Grande Armee carried all before it. You have the chance to command the finest army in European history and re-fight on a grand tactical scale the mighty battles which shaped the development of the modern world.”

The game never surfaced in the end it seems, and is still at large. Was the game actually ever released or was it cancelled? SSG continued to run for many years afterwards, and there seemed to be no further mention of the game.

If you know anything more about this title – please do get in touch. In the meantime we’ll try and reach out to SSG to learn more.
