Subject: The conflict that led up to the events of Red Alert.
Description: This game would focus on the events of World War I leading up to the elimination of Hitler. It would also show how Kane orchestrated the assassination that started the war as well as his rise to become Stalin's advisor/assistant.
The game would also not be without typical C&C flair, making use of the weapons seen in RA and TS (later on).
Positive effect: this game could help to illustrate how Kane began his rise to power as well as lay a foundation for how the Soviet Union grew under communist control to become how we see it at the beginning of Red Alert. This could also create an entirely new storyline with or without Kane (if Germany and it's allies had won the war). Also there could be a lot of foreshadowing to the later games.
Negative effect: this could seen as an elaborate history lesson if not done properly. This might also conflict with people who do not relate RA to TS.
Media: unfortunately I don't have any at this time.
