About Second Front

After extensive planning and a lot of brainstorming we seriously started working full time on „Second Front“ in April 2018.
We launched our Steam Page in March 2020, and we are proud that MicroProse is our publisher since May 2020.

We are excited about our release on January 31, 2023! But even after that we will not stop the development but constantly improve and supplement.

The Team

There’s Jo, in charge of everything … he is the programmer and works on the AI.

Our great graphics are made by Renan Longatti.

Videos & pictures are edited by Rosy, who also makes sure that Jo works exclusively on Second Front and has no private live anymore.

Tim works on historical research.

And a few more helping hands & brains & Playtesters, which we appreciate very much!
