About

We live in a country where the people own the Government and not in a country where the Government owns the people.(c) Winston Churchill



Strategic Mind: Fight for Freedom — is a (hi)story-driven turn-based strategy set in the WW2 period. It offers refined wargame mechanics, story-rich gameplay, and modern 3D graphics. Lead the Allies troops in two campaigns, defending your homeland and freeing the European continent!

SEE WW2 FROM DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES
The game has 2 campaigns: British one features fully historical battles, while the US one has historical operations up to the defeat of Germany and also features a number of alternate history battles against the USSR afterward. It is created with great care and attention to historical details by a team that is passionate about WW2 history.

IMMERSE YOURSELF INTO THE STORY
Watching cinematics before and after every operation you can almost feel that you are indeed a participant of the unfolding epochal events. Moreover, numerous primary and secondary objectives allow you to explore every battle in detail.

Men are not prisoners of fate, but only prisoners of their own minds.(c) Franklin Delano Roosevelt

MEET THE TOP BRASS
The gameplay is plot-driven and features many historical personalities such as Winston Churchill, Bernard Law Montgomery, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and others.

WELCOME THE SUCCESSOR
Strategic Mind: Fight for Freedom is the fourth installment in the Strategic Mind line of games. The first one — “Strategic Mind: The Pacific” — was about naval warfare during the Pacific War, while the second one — “Strategic Mind: Blitzkrieg” — was telling the story of the European theater from the German perspective. The third one — “Strategic Mind: Spectre of Communism” tells the USSR story in WW2. Strategic Mind: Fight for Freedom will feature two Allied campaigns (led by the British and the US) across Europe and Africa, with alternate history ending, after the historical one. As a part of the Strategic Mind franchise, it will retain many features of the series along with adding new content and features to the existing variety.

When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.(c) Franklin Delano Roosevelt


KEY FEATURES:

•   Command ground, air, and naval forces with the emphasis on the land battles.
•   Enjoy the modern 3D graphics brought by UE4 engine with detailed models of all the units, day/night cycle and weather effects.
•   Play two plot-driven campaigns: the British and the US one.
•   Upgrade and customize your troops by leveling them up and selecting skills that best suit your strategy.
•   Provide your troops with additional equipment for each operation according to your strategy and the war theatre.
•   Receive a number of awards throughout the game and get access to unique HQ skills, which you can learn to increase the efficiency and synergy of your troops.
•   Acquire various new units out of 10 different classes. All units and equipment are available at the historically accurate time periods.
•   Capture trophies and employ some of the enemy`s most advanced units against him in future battles.
•   Explore various “what if’s” to see what could have happened if the Allies continued the war against USSR following the Operation Unthinkable line of thought.
•   Immerse yourself into the story by watching over 60 minutes of cinematics, and listening to in-operation dialogues with full VO.
•   Enjoy the benefits of our “no in-game purchases” policy.
•   Defend the pillars of Freedom and Democracy in Europe from totalitarian regimes.

All the greatest things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: Freedom; Justice; Honour; Duty; Mercy; Hope.(c) Winston Churchill

British bomber: Short Stirling

Stirling was the first British four-engined strategic bomber. It was designed by the Short Brothers company.



The model was successful and remained the British heavy-bomber of choice until newer models became available in 1943 and its role in strategic bombing raids started to diminish.




In the game
The Short Stirling aircraft will serve as a strategic bomber and will be summoned by the “Air strike” HQ skill:



We will keep posting new units that will appear for the first time in the Strategic Mind series, so stay tuned!

Matilda II: close support variant


(Matilda II Mk is on the left)

Matilda II Mk. 4 close support tank was a refitted variant of Matilda II Mk. 2 heavy tank, armed with a 75 mm howitzer.

Matilda II tanks, in general, had very solid armoring, making them almost unbeatable to early German and Italian tanks. Their 45 mm gun was decent, but not very powerful.

The Matilda II Mk. 4 variant fitted with a 75 mm gun was created as a close support tank.

In the game
As the British did not have the dedicated Assault gun units, but rather refitted some of the tanks with howitzers, we will add a series of close support tanks as Assault guns class, but with a gun range of 2. Basically, the tanks like Matilda II Mk. 4 will be placed under the Assault gun category but will retain many tanks’ features making them a hybrid between Tanks and Assault guns. We are still working on the exact details, but that is our line of thought so far.

Let us know in the comments what you think about this idea. As our long-time users know, we are reacting to your feedback and do our best to implement the best of players-generated ideas and solutions.

We will keep posting new units that will appear for the first time in the Strategic Mind series, so stay tuned!

With best regards

Fight for Freedom Demo is now live!
Tue, 22 December 2020



Christmas presents for you



Hello, guys! Christmas is on us, and Santa is very busy sorting out all of his presents to deliver them on time, especially when the pandemic is disrupting air transport and logistics. Yet, you should not worry - we have approached Santa beforehand and arranged a timely delivery of Christmas gifts to all of our players in advance.

Today, Santa delivered all the goodies we have in store for you.

Free keys

Santa has chosen 12 players who were very active and helpful to the community and offered us feedback on certain issues helping us fix critical bugs, or just were generally very friendly and supportive to other community members. Santa gives free Strategic Mind: Fight for Freedom keys to:

🎁 Problem Solver
🎁 Liberty-kun (◕‿◕)
🎁 Steevodeevo
🎁 7TH MANEUVER CORPS
🎁 Wolf1455
🎁 Asura-223
🎁 Jurand36
🎁 MatthewT
🎁 Storm Eagle
🎁 Foxador
🎁 BrGGR
🎁 bcnkor

We will send you the keys through Steam private messages. The game will become available at the full release date in Q2 2021❗

Free demo
Santa had a very tough time choosing whom to give keys, as there are many more people who helped us a lot with the fixes and further game improvement. Santa cannot give the keys to everyone, but he offers everyone to play the free Demo of Strategic Mind: Fight for Freedom starting today and wishes all of you Merry Christmas.

Where is the demo?
You can find and download the demo at the Strategic Mind: Fight for Freedom store page:


What is the state of the Demo?
This is an early Demo that will later be updated to better represent the final game. Currently, it has the first operation of the British campaign, which is fully playable. It misses VO, has only ENG/RU text localization (DE, CN, FR - UI only), and does not contain new skills, and HQ skills. It also could miss some visual elements. Overall, it provides a stable and solid experience.

Will save files from the Demo be compatible with the Full version later on?
We plan to have the save files compatible so that you can continue playing the Full version starting from 2nd operation and keep your troops and progression. Yet, there is a small chance that the compatibility would be lost due to some unforeseen changes.

You can help Santa gather wishlists for a Christmas gift to the Starni Games team here:


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 🎄

Bristol Beaufighter



The Bristol Type 156 Beaufighter, often called the Beau, was a multi-role aircraft - primarily heavy-fighter. Developed by the Bristol Aeroplane Company in the UK. It was used as a long-range heavy fighter, bomber, torpedo bomber and night fighter.

Beaufighter was a very successful aircraft that entered the war during the Battle of Britain. It was relatively slow by fighter standards but could carry more weight, which allowed for the installation of powerful armaments and radars.

Starting late 1940 many Beaufighters were equipped with radars for night operations and proved to be a very effective counter to the German night raids. Additionally, it was often equipped with air-to-surface missiles.

In the game



Like other long-range fighters in the game, Beaufighter has 60 fuel instead of the usual 40. That allows it to operate across larger distances and be less conservative with skills like Afterburner or Overwatch breakthrough. In that regard, it has a similar role to the German Me-110 series. At the same time, it is better at attacking ground targets and could be used successfully in the ground attack aircraft role. You can also equip it with air-to-ground missiles.



We will keep posting new units that will appear for the first time in the Strategic Mind series, so stay tuned!

British cruiser tanks



Unlike the sluggish and heavily-armored infantry tanks, the concept of “cruiser tanks” was designed around speed and mobility. In many ways these are the UK’s answer to the Pz III, with equivalent armaments and similar overall performance. Some early “close support” variants even came armed with a howitzer, fulfilling the combat role of an assault gun.

The Cruiser Mk III A13 was built for speed and armed with a QF 2-pounder. It was designed to swarm the enemy, and had poor armor - something the crew had to be mindful of.



Cruiser Mk IV was a hasty course correction - so hasty many models were shipped straight to the frontline, often with some parts missing. It fared poorly against thick German armor, but quickly became a soldiers’ favorite in Africa, where its speed and good climate adaptation made it deadly when facing lightly armored Italian tanks.



Crusader II kept the speed and the 2-pounder cannon, but boasted additional protective panels on its sides, and much thicker front armor, offset by the powerful Nuffield Liberty Mk.III engine. This machine came into use in 1942, just in time for the major battles in North Africa.



In the game
The сruiser tanks’ high mobility is reflected by the high movement points, but their defense is mediocre. Still, it is a force to be reckoned with, especially early into the war. Their armament provides decent Soft attack and mediocre Hard attack capabilities.

The Cruiser Mk III A13

British dive bombers



The screaming Stuka remains one of the most recognizable images of the Second World War. They were as much of a sensation at the time - faced with the enemy dive bombers, the British immediately wanted their own.

American-made A-31 Vengeance had all the weaknesses of a dive bomber - a dire need for a fighter escort, and a reliance on local air superiority - but made up for them by being rugged, dependable and, according to some accounts, simply “a lovely aircraft to fly”. They did not fare well in the battle of Britain, but won their glory in Burma, where, safe from overwhelming flak fire, Vengeances were used to conduct numerous bombing raids on the Japanese supply lines and military infrastructure.

A-31 Vengeance Mk. I was the first model ordered, with the initial order of 200. A-31 Vengeance Mk. II had only minor differences, while A-35B Vengeance Mk. IV boasted a more powerful engine, and an increased bomb load.

A-31 Vengeance Mk. II








A-35B Vengeance Mk. IV

g

In the game
The Vengeance series will be the only Dive bombers available in the UK campaign. Unlike ordinary Tactical bombers, Dive bombers deal mostly Lethal damage, not allowing the enemy to restore wounded at the end of its turn. Thus, it is more effective if you want to deal permanent damage to the enemy troops. Although, other bombers that deal mostly Nonlethal damage, could be better for making the enemy surrender and taking prisoners, instead of outright annihilating the enemy troops.
