Quick paced real-time technique Drone Swarm will launch this week, an bold sci-fi sport the place you management some 32,000 individually-simulated house drones. It has an fascinating vibe, fairly fairly in movement and pretty fast-paced for a recent RTS. It is also single participant solely, which is type of refreshing if I am being sincere. There is a demo you may strive if that tickles your fancy.
Gameplay appears like a sequence of fast-paced tactical motion puzzles. It is nontraditional for an RTS, however the free demo is enjoyable sufficient should you’re . You management the swarm, forcing it to make use of varied skills like shields, fees, and superheating to defeat enemy ships whereas defending your personal mothership. The mothership itself has weapons and upgrades so that you can use as properly.
The story is about people leaping across the galaxy looking for a brand new residence for humanity after earth was destroyed by the eponymous Drone Swarm, which is now below the management of psychic people. It is type of an odd plot however apparently there’s a complete prequel comedian sequence should you’re into it. Could possibly be goofy enjoyable in a 90s Sci-Fi sequence type of means. Its been a reasonably severe yr for Strategy games, with all method of hardcore entries from Iron Harvest to Crusader Kings 3, so this extra light-weight sport is perhaps welcome to some.
Truthfully, although, why 32,000? Is it as a result of 32,000 is the biggest quantity you may retailer in a 16-bit integer? Maybe that makes it a satisfyingly giant quantity for somebody who makes laptop video games. Perhaps. Drone Swarm releases on October 20th, and is priced at $25, or $30 for the deluxe version, on Steam. The deluxe version is 20% off earlier than launch.
