Over the weekend, Polish developer DMD Enterprise released Uprising44 , a strategy/shooter hybrid taking place within the well-worn gaming theater of World War II. No, don't reach for your dented helmet and M1 Garand just yet: you're actually a resistance member conducting guerrilla attacks during the ill-fated Warsaw Uprising, an event "not yet used" before now, DMD claims.
Gameplay switches between over-the-shoulder, cover-based shooting - where sandbags, static positioning, and the almighty flatcap reign supreme - to directing squads of civilian fighters through a pair of grimy binoculars. More interesting is the setting, a deviation from the usual British, American, and Russian battles to the Poles' struggle against Nazi occupation. We're not sure yet how it holds up, but we're curious.
