Welcome everyone interested in Salvo!

This is just a brief introduction and a disclaimer. <Don’t-ya-love-it?>

Greetings – I’m the developer for Salvo and I guess that makes me the front line defense for this forum. So, for now I’ll be doing my best to keep an eye on things here. The disclaimer is that something is taking up a lot of my time lately, hummmm - I seem real busy – Oh yea! - I’m trying to wrap-up Salvo. So, I’ll hit this forum as often as I can to give you reports on the exact hour’s situation and to answer questions about the game. But – I can only say that this is secondary to my current focus in life.

Thanks for dropping in!

I read something of what the game includes. In particular, the campaign aspect where you command a fleet through a campaign period.

Are there also scenarios where you command individual ships through a smaller campaign or mission? If so, would the captain be advanced in rank depending on his successes? And I guess what I'm really asking is, is there a campaign included that is similar to what had in Talensoft's Age of Sail?

Rick:

Some aspects of Salvo’s campaign structure are similar to that, but some are quite different. Basically, Salvo’s campaign system works by letting you make strategic choices following each campaign battle. The choice can be for one ship, or for your entire navy – depending on the context of the scenario. The quality and moral of your ships will improve as you ‘promote’ them or as they gain experience, but there is no solid conceptualization of yourself as the captain of one of the ships.

There are several campaigns that start out with single ships and remain small throughout, but the advancement of rank and other ‘character’ aspects are a little abstracted or purely in the accompanying material that goes with the campaign. Success in a battle is rewarded, but winning an entire campaign will also require making the right choices.

There will be at least one campaign in the demo, as well as a campaign tutorial. Chances are the campaign tutorial will answer your questions, so please hold on for the demo, and let em know what you think.

I had a look at Shrapnel's product page for Salvo, and was wondering how played *more precisely* the game, 'cause the feature description are somewhat vague..
Well luckily I did click on the link to www.spruegames.com and found there a very thorough documentation, there's even 3 tutorials complete with screenshots ! Now I'm sure the game is what I was looking for since years...
I feel this information can be useful

And what about the release date ?

I hope to find this game in computer shops in Italy! I don't know why but it reminds me of Achtung Spitfire!
