The date is 1st February 1942. Japanese troops, under the command of the indomitable "Tiger of Malaya", General Tomoyuki Yamashita, are poised at the gates of Singapore, ready to cross the Straits of Johor in force to finish what had been unthinkable even a year ago - the capture of this great British colony and naval base, dubbed "The Impregnable Fortress" by many around the world.
On the other side, Commonwealth forces under the command of General Arthur Percival are tired, demoralized and disorganised, having conducted a continuous two-month long fighting retreat down the length of Malaya. However, with the arrival of fresh troops in the form of the British 18th Infantry Division, there is one last chance to turn defeat into victory.
Both sides gird themselves for the battle soon to be joined. Commanders, your soldiers await your orders!

I've learnt over the years that I don't have any real skills except the ability to play games. So I guess it makes sense that eventually I would gravitate towards making my own games.
