The RTS genre is going through a bit of a renaissance, and as of late it has been helmed by Petroglyph. This is a talented group of developers who aim to return RTS’ to their former glory. When Petroglyph makes a game, you pay attention because of their pedigree as a developer and the employees who have been involved in the creation of the classic Command & Conquer games. 8-Bit Armies is a reincarnation of that ethos, and is a solid entry only held back by budgets.
Grey Goo is a hypothetical scenario in which molecular nanotechnology, without limitations, is able to self-replicate and ends the world by consuming the planet. Grey Goo the game explores this scenario of the same name, and what results is a solid throwback of RTS’ of years gone by that fits well into today’s world.
Award-winning, independent videogame developer Petroglyph, in conjunction with publishing partner Grey Box, today announced Grey Goo, an all-new real-time strategy (RTS) game set for release this fall on PC. Grey Goo breathes new life into the RTS genre by blending classic, established gameplay mechanics and tropes with modern design tools and technology to create a thoughtful, exhilarating strategy experience.
