Hi John, Thanks for the reply. I did not know there were add on packs for Steel Panthers, so I must have a search to see if i can find them. It is great you are still in the game design area, and i have seen Levee en Masse at the VPG site (I  frequently visit the VPG site as I do like their games), so I will look forward to seeing Keep Up The Fire! released.

Roger - talk about a late reply :-)  I just rediscovered this thread and your question - I worked with Novastar Games and Dave Landrey for another four years after the original Steel Panthers came out in 1995.  I worked on a number of add-on scenario packs for Steel Panthers through Novastar Games including the first efforts at a Mega Campaign.  I had the opportunity to work on Age of Rifles for SSI as well.  The computer wargame business has changed dramatically in the last 15 years that's for sure :-)

Like you, I've been a teacher for the past 25 years including a now 10 year part-time gig as an adjunct faculty at AMU.  A year and a half ago, I started doing design work for Victory Point Games which featured the release of my first boardgame - Levee en Masse.  My second game should be going out to playtesters soon - it's called Keep Up the Fire! and it's a game on the Boxer Rebellion in China in the summer of 1900.

Thanks for asking and sorry for the delay.

Saxon, I was aware, and thanks for posting those excellent links.
You are absolutely spot on with your comment of:
"These are surely the best battalion level computer wargames out there..."

Perhaps you guys are aware, but the windows versions of Steel Panthers are still being developed, and are available for free download here:


WinSPMBT (modern warfare)

These are surely the best battalion level computer wargames out there...

Hi MSgt Shane - my website is

Hi John, that is amazing that you worked on the first one. I love this game, as it is so addictive and replayable. You have my complete and utter admiration. what other games have you worked on?

Great news! What is your website Roger?
Comment by John Welch on May 28, 2010 at 6:56pm
This brings back memories for me - I worked on the original Steel Panthers back in 1995-96 - I did half of the scenarios that came with the initial release. I've continued to be amazed at how long the game has remained in circulation - particularly given the average 'life' of computer games.
