Operation Citadel WW2 strategy still going strong on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Thanks to the efforts of developer Valentin Lievre. Who has removed the build in favour of Steam. And rightly so, there are some epic reviews.

Operation Citadel is a cross platform multiplayer turn based strategy game. Which also happens to take place in WW2. Releasing back in March 2020, there are now 95% Positive reviews on Steam. Players putting in anywhere from 6hrs of gameplay to 115hrs.

This may also be linked to the game covering ALL fronts of the second world war. Along with a powerful editor, so you can recreate almost any conflict. Featuring 900 unit types, numerous campaigns, huge maps, and a complete suite of editors.

Here’s the developer explanation about Operation Citadel:

Hi I’m Valentin, young French developer of 21 years old. I started this game in December 2019 from scratch after playing my first wargame for a couple of hours. Working alone on it with my brother, who’s responsible for the art.

Operation Citadel has been developed by Valentin Lievre within a year. Which is impressive, since this is his very first war game. Plus he also believes that DLC’s should be part of the base game. So instead of having to buy additional content, it’s all included with regular updates. All while offering up a Free Demo with support for Linux, Mac and Windows PC on Steam.
