    Howdy. I've always been a fan of reading and learning about WWII, and I'm very much a fan of WWII strategy videogames such as Company of Heroes and Men of War.

    I'm a grad student in Canada, and in my spare time I've started work a on WWII strategy PC game of my own, and will be doing lots of research to make it as authentic and respectful as possible. I look forward to researching various topics on this forum with you guys.

    Welcome, from a fellow Canadian. Where are you from and where/what are you studying?

    Disappointing. by the titIe was hoping you were developing a game animal something like a giant moose, but with teeth like a sabertooth cat and long claws, perhaps something that could drop out of trees on unwary hikers. A WWII strategy game would be cool also, just not as cool as a genetically mutated super-predator.

    Thanks for the warm welcome!

    Hi Alan. I'm at the University of Saskatchewan pursuing a masters degree in Computer Science. My thesis is about the effects of lag/latency in videogames.

    Haha, that sounds more like what you'd find in a horror game. Perhaps a first-person VR game where you have to survive a night-time hike through a forest. From both your username and the link to your book (I assume you wrote it?), you either like bears or hate them, a lot. Not sure which.

    But... koalas are supposed to be cuddly!

    I've made a thread outlining my game concept. Let me know what y'all think.
