2017-03-05: title added to greenlight with the title of 'Eye of the Commander'
2017-04-20: status changed from 'Waiting' to 'Greenlit'
2018-04-04: status changed from 'Greenlit' to 'Released'
I made a light wargame, heavily inspired by the Command & Colors game series. You are restricted to just move a few units each turn, making every move feel crucial. Another benefit is the low downtime makes the multiplayer quick and exciting.

A few images in the video has been borrowed from other games, Ive blurred them in the screen shots. I had to rush the greenlight before Steam will close it.
The art style is inspired by "Battle for Wesnoth". The not blurred characters are 100% painted by me.
The final product will of course not use any stolen images.
Command & Colors
I recommend you check out the Command & Colors board game series (Command & Colors, Memoir44 and Battlelore), great fun to play against a friend. They got two games on Steam, I personally don't think they work as PC ports - get the board versions instead.
