Fast turn-based strategy where the map changes along with the climate, Epicinium could be interesting with its fresh take on tactical battles.

War, war never changes. Except when it does and the land around you is ruined. That's what Epicinium will have a focus on when it releases free on October 12. The idea is that you need to be seriously careful to balance firepower against the enemy, and damage to the environment. There's a 'global warming' system that will also include a multitude of different weather effects adding to gameplay depth and variety.

Feature Highlight:

  • Multiplayer battles with up to 8 players in free-for-all
  • Versus-AI skirmish matches, featuring several AIs with different strategies
  • Ranked and unranked matchmaking modes
  • An easy-to-use map editor

You win by being careful. Combat will destroy grass, crops, trees and so on. Building industry will accelerate the global warming system and more environmental destruction will happen as battles go on. Players get a score based on how much of nature is left at the end of the war. While it's turn-based it does have a simultaneous turn system so no one should be left waiting around too.

Worth a look if you want a new strategy game to try out.

Interesting. And you know, climate change aside, there's nothing new about war ruining the landscape and wrecking the economy. Directly and indirectly . . . throughout recorded history you have countries chopping down all their forests to build navies.
