Description

Talvisota: Icy Hell is an RTS re-enactment of the Winter War. Including campaigns for both Russian and the Finnish, you can partake in the faithfully re-enacted events of the Winter War.

Unlike usual RTSes, Talvisota: Icy Hell does not have any resource management but instead, it concentrates solely on the strategy aspect. The game is mouse-controlled with keyboard shortcuts like any other modern RTS. Realism has been taken into account as you can only take out enemy tanks with other tanks or specialized anti-tank units. Building units is out of the question, as you have to deal with what you're given in the beginning of the mission, but completing side-missions can rank you up and give you additional units to work with.

The missions are redrawn from real events and you are given historical lessons during missions as introductions to the missions. Talvisota: Icy Hell does not have multiplay support.
