Escalation is a downward spiral.

First Strike is a ten minute, fast paced realtime strategy game. You control one of eleven nuclear superpowers on earth and have to strategically conquer, research and attack global nations while defending yourself from missile attacks. The game is designed ground up for tablets, so you can interact with the globe using the touch screen and gestures.

We are Blindflug Studios, a new independent developer from Zürich, Switzerland. We’re a bunch of politically interested people who want to combine worlds biggest issues with imaginative and polished games.


First Strike is our debut title and is exactly what we strife for: Beautiful, custom made for the platform and a lot of fun, while playing with a serious issue without being condescending.

The game is all about risk management and opportunity. Within seconds, the situation around can turn from a passive arms race into an all out nuclear war, where everyone fires their rockets in fear of loosing the arsenal. The game lets you feel the escalation.
