Undaunted: Normandy coming to Steam Early Access

Two posts in one day after my drought?

Well, when I received this news in my inbox this morning, I knew I had to post today.

Bookmark Games (developer of the wonderful Pavlov’s House solo boardgame app) have announced that they will be bringing the deckbuilding wargame Undaunted: Normandy to Steam and iOS devices (no announcement about Android yet?)

Undaunted: Normandy uses deckbuilding mechanics but you are moving your units around a tiled map that varies each scenario.

The tabletop game was published in 2019 by Osprey Games and was designed by Trevor Benjamin and David Thompson. The artwork is by Roland MacDonald.

From the press release:

Undaunted Normandy is the best-selling World War II deck-building game, placing you and your opponent in command of American or German forces fighting through a series of missions critical to the outcome of the war. Use your cards to seize the initiative, bolster your forces, or control your troops on the battlefield. Strong leadership can turn the tide of battle in your favour, but reckless decisions could prove catastrophic, as every casualty you take removes a card from your deck. Take charge amidst the chaos of battle, hold fast in the face of opposition, and remain undaunted.”

I admit I haven’t tried this one out yet. I do have Undaunted: North Africa but haven’t gotten it to the table yet.

I’m really psyched for this one.

The press release lists the key features in the app, so I’ll just post them here:

  • A faithful recreation of the original board game.
  • An original card and dice driven mechanic making the game highly replayable.
  • All scenarios from the original boardgame plus two additional scenarios.
  • Play individual scenarios or a full campaign (on Full Release).
  • Play solo against three different levels of difficulty.
  • Cross platform online multiplayer (play by email) or local hotseat.
  • Learn the game through a quick and engaging tutorial.
  • 1944 Normandy rendered in 3D maps with animated units.
  • Original music compositions by Gabriel Berger.

And here are a couple of screen shots.

In this one below you can see the terrain tiles laid out almost like they were on your table.

Undaunted: Normandy will be available on Steam Early Access in Q3 of 2022 with the full release (which I assume will include iOS and (maybe) Android).

I can’t wait to get my (figurative) hands on this one!

Let me know what you think about this in the comments.
