Description

Attack at Dawn: North Africa is an operational level wargame set in WW2 North African theatre. It features 3 campaigns, and 15 scenarios which can be played in solo or multiplayer modes. It can be played as a real-time, or turn-based (WeGo) game. The game begins with the German troops probing into the Libyan region of Cyrenaica, and finishes either with the total defeat of German-Italian Panzer Armee, or with the British loss of Egypt and their retreat across the Suez Canal.

Development History

Tomislav Čipčić: "Ever since I was 6, I have been fascinated with the North African campaign. The name Tobruk has stuck in my mind ever since. A couple of decades later, I've started a game project with a group of friends.
That project didn't end with the finished game, since we were all young and inexperienced. We've reached for the secret too soon ..
However, after several years and after publishing one successful tabletop wargame - I decided to have another try. The development started in 2018 with a prototype of operation Battleaxe. After that, I decided to go all in with the original idea for the game, that's how the "Attack at Dawn: North Africa" came to be. After 3 years of development, we currently have a solid, smoothly running and fun game. It will take some time until we finish with all the playtesting, balancing and refining the UI. But I have no doubt that this game will make its mark."

Features

  • Large Map - the game features a large map, covering a distance of almost 2000 kilometres – from the bay of Sirte in Libya, to Suez Canal in Egypt. The terrain varies between sea, desert and mountains; wadis and sebkhas; villages, birs and ports. There is one long metallic road – Via Balbia, spanning the whole length of the map. And a handful of well-known desert tracks leading from the road towards the deep Sahara in the south.

  • Historical Accuracy - the scenarios have been created after studying the historical orders of battle, and battle histories. Attention was given to the composition of the armies, combat values of individual units and overall authenticity of each scenario.

  • Accurate Scenarios And Campaigns - there are 15 carefully recreated scenarios in the game, which can be played as a solo or multiplayer game, or as a part of a campaign. The game features historical scenarios, and speculative scenarios, depicting the what-if situations from the campaign.

  • Intensive Gameplay - the game can be played in a real-time, or turn-based (WeGo) mode. That reflects the speed and chaos of the desert mobile warfare. Combine this with the fog of war, and the experience of being in command vehicle of a Panzer Corps comes to life. The game will immerse you in one of the most intensive and nerve-wrecking experiences of the Second World War.
