Mithis Games, a new Hungarian company formed by several developers from the team behind the forthcoming space strategy epic Imperium Galactica 3, have unveiled their debut project. Going by the working title of Midway - Naval Battles, it's a World War II strategy game that puts you in command of one or more battleships, fighting for the British, Americans, Germans or Japanese as you work your way up the career ladder from humble captain to admiral. Planes and submarines can be brought into play as well, with the promise of 40 different units at your disposal, while formations and fleet tactics can be used to make the most of them. Players will also be responsible for managing their ship's crew, who will develop new skills over time as they gain combat experience. Midway should be casting off in late 2003 or early 2004.
