The game was made by those who developed FTL: Faster Than Light (see my review), and it shows with both pixel art and gameplay. This time one doesn’t control a whole ship, but mechs that have to defend human civilization from aliens. Maybe not the most original concept, but it serves as a sufficient backdrop for tough-as-nails strategic gaming. Unlike the company’s former game, there is still a chance to survive, though, as one can send help back through time and save another timeline. Quite fitting and very Terminator-esque.
The game is only available to download for free today, December 20, 2019, until 5 pm, but it’s only the start, as more games will be unlocked the next 6 days. So check back soon on this Epic Games Store equivalent of an advent calendar.
