If you’re like me, you frequently think about the golden years real-time strategy games saw in the 90s and 2000s, only to get washed away by eSports-fodder like DOTA and League of Legends, or worse, freemium Facebook games.
Thankfully, game developers are still trying to keep that fire burning, and now Hungarian developer StormCube Games (who are made up of mostly ex-Crytek Budapest veterans) have put out a no-nonsense, base-building real-time strategy game they’ve simply called Reconquest. How was that name available?! Featured above, you can view the game’s release trailer.
The game features two playable factions: the urban forces and the outlaw clan. The story (yes there’s a 10-mission single player campaign for each faction!) is set after the devastation of World War III, where humanity was nearly wiped out. Your new goal is to literally reconquer and restore order to the now lawless world.
There’s also a classic skirmish mode, as well as a “Trapped” mode, which lets you choose among eight pre-determined challenges to work through.
You can find Reconquest here on Steam.
