We really enjoy the simple and clean look that a pixel-based art style gives the game. The art style reflects the straightforward gameplay mechanics we've incorporated that made original RTS titles so popular. Over time, "improvements" to RTS games meant adding complexity which greatly narrowed the audience. With 8-Bit Armies we're looking to broaden that audience with a fast, fun, and highly accessible game that requires minimal instruction. Using a simpler, but high-quality pixelated art style also broadens the appeal of the game to players that might not have given it a second look.
The game is DRM free! You'll also need to have Steam or GOG Galaxy installed and a registered serial key to connect to our dedicated servers if you want to play online with friends in cooperative mode or player vs. player.
The game will release with 10 maps, and more maps are planned for post-launch. Maps are sized according to the number of players the map supports, up to 8 players. Most PvP games are 1v1 or 2v2, so selecting an 8 player map for one of these games will provide for a lot of open space and extra resources.
8-Bit Armies comes with our classic "retro" military factions the RENEGADES and the GUARDIANS, which most of you will find very familiar if you've played some of the classic RTS games that started the genre.
Playing a cooperative match against the AI in campaign mode is a lot like setting up a multiplayer game. When you select the mission you want to play, a game is hosted that anyone can join, whether they have already won that mission or not. The cooperative campaign has additional (harder) objectives to achieve just like the single-player campaign which contribute to your overall rank that you achieve in the game.
