Polish developer and publisher, <a target=_blank href=http://www.techland.pl>Techland[/url], has announced their new cRPG by the title of <a target=_blank href=http://weirdwar.techland.pl/>Weird War: The Unknown Episode of World War 2[/url].

When I visited the game's <a target=_blank href=http://weirdwar.techland.pl/>website[/url], I realised, that it's actually the same game as <a target=_blank href=http://www.mirage.com.pl/www43/html_en/info.html>World Wide War 43[/url] by <a target=_blank href=http://www.mirage.com.pl>Mirage Interactive[/url] and the Alien Artefact group, whom we <a target=_blank href=http://www.rpgcodex.com/content.php?id=50>interviewed[/url] some time ago, based on the engine of their previous WW2 cRPG, <a target=_blank href=www.anotherwar.com>Another War[/url]. Strangely, there's no mention of neither Mirage, nor Artefact on Techland's <a target=_blank href=http://weirdwar.techland.pl/>website[/url] for the game.

After searching a bit more, i found out that the Polish publisher of this game is <a target=_blank href=http://www.cenega.pl>Cenega[/url], and the game has already gone gold in Poland. I also found out that the game is actually based on (a sequel, to be precise) a classic Polish 1970s comedy movie - <a target=_blank href=http://us.imdb.com/Title?0065908>How I Unleashed World War 2[/url] (a great one, too!). I was surprised to find it out, as it wasn't mentioned in any of the two official sites, and hyped as the most importand feature at the Polish publisher's site (not that strange, though, since both official sites are in English only - this IS weird, though). The game's title in Poland is also different - "Jak Rozpetalem Druga Wojne Swiatow±: Nieznane Przygody Franka Dolasa" (How I Unleashed World War 2: Unknown Adventures of Franek Dolas). Also, Marian Kociniak, who played Dolas in the movie, will also voice him in the game.

I'm a bit too confused to comment it all, so I'll just give you the box shot from the Polish version:
