They Are Billions: l’RTS steampunk di Numantian si rivede in foto e video

Se avete apprezzato Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator, allora amerete alla follia questo nuovo They Are Billions!

Gli autori indipendenti di Numantian Games solleticano il fine palato degli appassionati di videogiochi strategici con delle nuove immagini e scene di gioco di They Are Billions, un interessante RTS ambientato in una dimensione steampunk invasa dagli zombie.

In maniera non troppo dissimile da Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator, il sistema di gioco di They Are Billions prevede il controllo di un manipolo di soldati contro ondate di non-morti e di creature della notte: grazie allo stile grafico minimalista scelto dai Numantian, ciascuna battaglia può coinvolgere migliaia di soldati virtuali, ciascuno caratterizzato dal suo set di comportamenti predeterminati e persino da una rudimentale routine di intelligenza artificiale capace di donare loro un minimo di “autonomia”.

Il percorso di sviluppo intrapreso dai Numantian Games si concluderà ufficialmente alla fine dell’anno, con la commercializzazione di They Are Billions su Steam nella sola versione PC, ma con la concreta possibilità di vederlo su altre piattaforme in un secondo momento qualora il progetto dovesse riscuotere un successo analogo a quello dell’ormai celebre Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator.

Queste sono le caratteristiche principali del titolo tratte dalla pagina Steam ufficiale (in inglese) di They Are Billions:

Campaign

In the campaign mode, you have to help the surviving humans to reconquer their country. There are dozens of missions with different goals: building colonies, tactical missions, rescue missions… You can decide the path of progress and mission – research new technologies, advances and upgrades to improve your colonies and army.

Survival Mode

In this mode, a random world is generated with its own events, weather, geography, and infected population. You must build a successful colony that must survive for 100 days against the swarms of infected. It is a fast and ultra addictive game mode. We plan to release a challenge of the week where all players must play the same random map. The best scores will be published in a leaderboard.

Real Time with Pause

This is a real-time strategy game, but don’t get too nervous. You can pause the action to take the best strategic and tactical decisions.
In Pause Mode, you can place structures to build, give orders to your army, or consult all of the game’s information.
This game is all about strategy, not player performance or the player’s skill to memorize and quickly execute dozens of key commands. Pause the game and take all the time you need!

Build your Colony

Build dwellings and acquire food for the colonists. They will come to live and work for the colony.
Collect resources from the environment using various building structures. Upgrade buildings to make them more efficient.
Expand the energy distribution of the colony by placing Tesla Towers and build mills and power plants to feed the energy to your buildings.
Build walls, gates, towers, and structures to watch the surroundings. Don’t let the infected take over the colony!

Build an Army

What kind of people would want to combat the infected?
Only the maddest ones. Train and contract mercenaries to protect the colony. They demand their money and food, and you will have to listen to their awful comments, but these tormented heroes will be your best weapon to destroy the infected.
Every unit is unique and has their own skills and personality – discover them!

Thousands of Units on Screen

Yes! They are billions! The world is full of infected creatures… they roam, smell, and listen. Every one of them has their own AI. Make noise and they will come – kill some of them to access an oil deposit and hundred of them will come to investigate.
We have created our custom engine to handle hordes of thousands of the infected, up to 20,000 units in real time.
Do you think your colony is safe? Wait for the swarms of thousands of infected that are roaming the world. Sometimes your colony is in their path!

Prevent the Infection

If just one of the infected breaks into a building, all the colonies and workers inside will become infected. The infected workers will then run rabid to infect more buildings. Infections must be eradicated from the beginning, otherwise, it will grow exponentially becoming impossible to contain.

Beautiful 4K Graphics!

Prepare to enjoy these ultra high definition graphics. Our artists have created tons of art pieces: Beautiful buildings with their own animations, thousands of frames of animation to get the smoothest movements and everything with a crazy Steampunk and Victorian style!
