Red March is an innovative indie RTS game. We aim to implement a combination of old-school RTS gameplay on large scale maps, showing realistic battles and using an immersive storyline to capture the feeling of the last world war. Concieved as a cure to the recent trend of oversimplification of strategy games and the dilution of their portrayal of war, Red March intends to combine the fast-paced and frantic gameplay of old-school games, such as Command and Conquer, and combine it with the innovative concepts of more recent games which have become standard, such as infantry cover systems and destructible scenery.

Flag of The United Nations

Comrades! Today is marked as Victory Day, and we have some information to reveal concerning one of our playable factions: the United Nations.

The United Nations is a single inter-governmental organisation, formed on April 4th, 1949, following the devastating African Campaign of the late 1940s by the United Kingdom and France with the intention of creating a joint defence program for Europe. With the detonation of an atomic weapon by the USSR in 1948, and the Pacific War of 1946-1947, the United States decided that it could pursue no other course of action than joining the organisation too. Now, the UN represents the most important economic cooperative organisation in history.

On the peripheries of power lie the second tier governments within the UN, including Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Portugal, Ireland, Greece, and members of the British Commonwealth. These nations have less of a final say in matters in the World Council, but nonetheless provide a great deal of the economic and industrial backbone for the UN.

The Core nations, Britain, France and the US, represent the highest official echelons of power within the UN, having the final veto in almost all matters of state. They also hold more rights, the US, for example retains its' own borders, essentially being an independent nation rather than another district of the UN, while Britain and France continue to hold influence on their colonies, giving them a greater total say in the World Council.

Nonetheless, despite these greater rights, friction remains within these nations, with some politicians arguing that membership alone erodes national identity. Many Factions also exist within higher circles of power that are hidden from the view of all but a few paranoid conspiracy theorists and possibly each other, each with their own agenda and methods. Their role is more difficult to determine than that of nations, but more sinister by far...

In terms of Gameplay, the UN player will take control of the forces of the core nations of the UN. From Britain, the Rifles Regiment, King's Royal Hussars Regiment and Royal Artillery will provide the player with some of the finest armor, artillery and light infantry in the world, let alone the might of support from the Royal Navy and RAF. From France, the Regiment du Genie, Regiment Special du Terre and Regiment du Defense will provide the player with unbeatable defences, and the tools required to counter similar defences, along with some of the finest special forces soldiers in the world. From the USA, expect the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions, Marine Corps and Rangers to bring the muscle of the UN forces, with excellent mechanised infantry, airborne support and amphibious forces capable of surprising and routing your foes.

Expect a similar reveal for the Pact faction shortly!

Why thank you! The UN is something that WatchDream and other developers have been working on for quite a long time now.

Never forget, Comrades, that they are merely misguided by their leaders. It is time to teach them the true value of Socialism!

The idea was similar, in fact in the Red March universe, the nations that would form the UN considered a smaller alliance known as NATO, but instead decided that only a much grander organisation, cooperating not only militarily, but economically, technologically and socially, would be able to withstand the might of the Pact alliance.

No, the world situation is such that such an organisation based on international diplomacy has long since fallen apart and such an idea would seem rather ridiculous to most of the factions due to their emnity.
