A Game of Naval Ship Design and Naval Combat at the Birth of the 20th Century.
Rule the Waves places you in the role of 'Grand Admiral' during the
early years of the 20th Century. You manage the naval affairs of your
chosen nation while navigating between the desires and demands of your
own government, the efforts of potential adversaries, and the affairs of
your potential allies.
The battle resolution mechanics are based
upon our successful Steam and Iron (SAI) system for combat but
technichal, economic and foreign policy decisions will also be necessary
as the player guides their navy's design, construction, deployment and
operations during a period of great technological innovation and
Rule the Waves is modeled on the period of
European global dominance but is not intended to precisely recreate
history. Rather RTW gives the Player the tools to lead a navy during the
era when 'steam and iron' dominated the high seas. You will create your
own naval history with your decisions, the ships and fleet you design,
and the conflicts that you avoid or fight!
If you ever wanted to design the perfect battleship or plan the perfect fleet, then Rule the Waves is the game for you!
