    I like how their video on the page is reminiscent of Blizzard's ice logo.

    Exactly my thoughts as soon as I opened the thread and read OP.

    RTS is a fun and under-represented category. I frequently go back and play old C&C titles, starcraft, warcraft 3 (well... not so much any more...), etc.

    To each their own. This actually looks pretty exciting to me!

    Not a very good name or logo, but I definitely support them and hopefully they come up with something good!

    I have a feeling if I checked, I may be a NY Times Best Selling author as well.

    RTS? Lol, RIP.

    Dead on arrival. This isn't the 90's or early 20's anymore.

    Good, there has been a real lack of RTS titles coming out over the past decade or so. Too many game studios are trying to the same thing, which is how we wound up with shit like Anthem/Marvel's Avengers/every battle royale/several dozen Korean MMORPGS.

    If something like FPS and first person RPGs can stick around seemingly forever, RTS can as well. The only thing the genre needs is an actually fun game to play with a good budget for marketing. That iron harvest game is okay enough, but there can definitely be better.

    I mean, genres come and goes... RTS will come back eventually, maybe these are the ones that does it? Good luck to them.

    Good luck to them. I think the RTS genre is pretty much dead. The type of player that enjoyed them mostly moved on to MOBAs.

    AS someone who grew up on RTS games, the market for them these days is dismal. Mostly because the younger Generation tends to gravitate towards games that don't require holding your attention for more than 20mins.

    With help from RIOT? Yea.. hard pass.
