Moscow, August 14


Moscow based studio Alter Games will show it’s flagship title Partisans 1941 for the first time at upcoming Gamescom, Cologne, Germany. Everybody may meet dev team and try exclusive demo-version at the Unreal Presents (B051) booth, exhibition hall 7.1

We are so excited to show our game not only to fellow colleagues but to actual gamers, to see them playing and experiencing what we created so far. It is very first time Partisans 1941 is being shown on such event as Gamescom, so we decided to go to very special demo-version. We did an exclusive mission for Partisans 1941 to all who want to try out our game in action” - said Anton Martyshenko, lead game designer.


Partisans 1941 is real-time squad strategy with RPG and base-building elements in a WW2 setting. Behind-the-enemy lines resistance had an unprecedented scale and played an important role in the Eastern Front during WW2. As this dramatic page of history is almost fully neglected previously, it is Partisans 1941 game that will put the player in the shoes of Partisan squad leader. Experience the drama of resistance on the enemy-occupied territory during the most dramatic period of war - autumn 1941. 

Partisans are not military special forces, they are people of different background united by will and duty to fight for Homeland behind the enemy lines. Face different attitude of your comrades to your actions and choices.
