Cinematics in Strategic Mind: Blitzkrieg
StartedTue, 24 March 2020

Episode 1. A work in progress


Screenshot 1: Admiral Doenitz explains the Kriegsmarine battle plans.

We are working hard to deliver you the best quality cinematics that will immerse you into the epochal events and make you an eyewitness of what was supposedly going on in the German high command at that time. Here are some screenshots from the cinematics we produce for the Strategic Mind: Blitzkrieg.


Screenshot 2: A field headquarters during the occupation of France.

In case you are curious as to our working process, it is as follows:

•   Scriptwriting.
•   Motion capture (of all characters for all scenes) of both body and face.
•   Polishing of the captured animations.
•   Creating all the locations using UE4.
•   Modeling all the characters.
•   Modeling all clothing, awards, insignias, etc.
•   Voice over at the studio for all the characters fitting the lip sync.
•   Putting together locations, characters, clothing, animations, and sound using UE4 (Like creation a virtual shooting set). Then we place virtual cameras in the editor and “film” our cinematics like one would in real life.
•   Then we prerender all the scenes not to load your PC with this task when you play the game, and to make sure everything is done correctly.


Screenshot 3. Heinz Guderian looks at Rommel appraisingly.

We are constantly working on improving our technology and working process. We expect to produce significantly better results compared to our previous projects and will keep working on further improvements.


Screenshot 4. Erwin Rommel at the headquarters meeting.

As you know, the coronavirus lockdown disrupts many businesses and processes throughout the world. So far we have successfully switched to the remote work and are going at the same pace as before.

We wish you all good health. We will keep you informed about our progress and share more materials with you as the release date approaches. Stay safe and stay tuned.

With best regards

Episode 4. Heinz Guderian


“There are no desperate situations, there are only desperate people.” (c) Heinz Guderian

“Heinz Wilhelm Guderian was a German general during World War II who, after the war, became a successful memoirist. An early pioneer and advocate of the "Blitzkrieg" approach, he played a central role in the development of the panzer division concept. In 1936, he became the Inspector of Motorized Troops.

At the beginning of the Second World War, Guderian led an armored corps in the Invasion of Poland. During the Invasion of France, he commanded the armored units that attacked through the Ardennes forest and overwhelmed the Allied defenses at the Battle of Sedan. He led the 2nd Panzer Army during Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of the Soviet Union. The campaign ended in failure after the German offensive Operation Typhoon failed to capture Moscow, after which Guderian was dismissed.”


“To imitate the ostrich in political matters has never been a satisfactory method of avoiding danger; yet this is what Hitler, as well as his more important political, economic and even military advisers, chose to do over and over again.” (c) Heinz Guderian

His dismissal was partially due to his outspoken manner (even in front of Hitler), and partially due to him disregarding the high command orders if he saw them unfit (usually he would ignore them to save his men from certain death, in case of his timely retreat during the Battle of Moscow, or to the contrary - he would carry on with the unauthorized attack to keep the initiative and momentum and thus minimize his units losses during the offensive).


“You hit somebody with your fist and not with your fingers spread.” (c) Heinz Guderian

Guderian was a prominent advocate of armored units and their offensive employment. In Strategic Mind: Blitzkrieg tanks will also play a major role - being an ideal unit for swift offensives due to high movement points, tracked movement type, high defense/attack values, and the Overrun ability.

Unlike many other games, in Strategic Mind: Blitzkrieg almost all the tank models (except those having only small-caliber guns, like Panzer II) have an attack range of 2, allowing you much more tactical freedom - your panzers can attack from a distance with a range penalty, or perform a frontal assault depending on the situation.

Stay tuned for more information about new content and game development progress.
