Remember How the West Was Won? It
Won't Help you Here!
America, a new real-time game of strategy from DATA BECKER,
will take you straight back to the days of the Old West. The time frame is 1820
to 1890, back when the West was still a rough frontier.
You will experience this era from the perspective of
Indians, Mexicans, Americans, or a gang of desperados. At that time, no country
better exemplified the spirit of progress and change than the United States. As
the flood of European settlers into the country increased steadily, so did
conflicts with the native Indian tribes and the Mexicans to the south. The
struggle for gold, land and power was underway.
With superior graphics, advanced artificial intelligence,
and new features not found in any other game, America depicts the lifestyle and
architecture of 19th century America with stunning authenticity, and sends you
back in time to test your wits and challenge your will. Whether you want to
reenact a major historical event or start from scratch and try to build your
own village, America covers it all. Supporting to to 8 players, including
network play, it is the only game of its kind that gives you the means to
reshape the landscape of American history.
This is your country. This is your
game. America: Love it - or level it.

Sir! Cavalryman Bones reporting as ordered, sir! The
stagecoach has been robbed again. Its the third time this month, sir. If
you dont mind my saying so, Sir, weve got a disaster on our hands.
Were fighting the Mexicans in Gonzales Canyon to the south. And last
night the Indians wiped out the whole company at Apache Pass. The troops are in
urgent need of supplies! The last shipment of Winchesters never arrived.
Im afraid the Indians are using them to shoot at us now..."
"...Now back to you, my young friend. Lets get one
thing straight: Im the boss around here, and you do whatever I say! Got
it? Good. Man, the stories I could tell you
Why, there was that time just
last week when we raided the bank in Dodge City. You know, they actually
thought wed let them live! Big mistake. But the sheriff, he was
persistent to say the least. Chased us for three days, choking on our dust.
Then, on the fourth day, he choked on our bullets. Didnt taste too good,
I imagine. Go fetch me a whiskey, kid!..."
"...Amigos, our future lies in your hands! And God willing,
I, el presidente de la nación, am the man who will lead you to meet this
future. A future where fear no longer holds sway. Ay, amigos, you will no
longer have to fear tomorrow, or banditos, or gringos. No, they will be the
ones who fear you. And do you know what will replace your fear? Faith,
Many moons ago, before the palefaces came, enormous
herds of buffalo roamed the land of our fathers, and the red man lived in peace
and harmony with the Great Spirit and nature. The white mans greed for
the yellow metal drove us from the hunting grounds of our ancestors and brought
sickness and death upon us..."
