Using their own state-of-the art custom voxel graphics engine named Voxoid, Puppygames have formally announced their next game with Battledroid.
Did you ever want to play games like Revenge of the Titans against other players as if you were playing a traditional war game? Now you can with BATTLEDROID!Puppygames
Coming with Linux support just like their previous games Basingstoke, Revenge of the Titans, Ultratron and more this is something quite different. It's a strategy game on a massively multiplayer grand-scale. It takes elements from tabletop games into the massively multiplayer world, with factions fighting for control over an entire planet.
The way it works is that the world is divided up into a huge hex-grid of territories, each harbouring a game resource. As you pick a place to attack and hopefully conquer, everyone else will be doing the same. As you conquer territory, you collect different kinds of units all with different stats, abilities and battle costs.
It's going to be free to play, with all content unlocked over time as you play and all players share the same army budget. You will be able to pay money for "pre-made army sets, or single colossal titans to crush your enemies with" however to keep it balanced you can't go over the total unit cost so no one is overpowered. They're promising no grinding since it's free, as "the game has no repetitive, pointless tasks: every battle is for real, against real enemies, for real advancement".
For a strategy game fan, it sounds like a huge amount of fun. Capturing and defending territory, watching huge explosive battles happen in real-time after planning, then come back the next day to see how the territory of the world has changed.
