    Great mechanics, except loot. Too big chance to be screwed, because you never find a decent sword.

    How about my own RTS:

    Underground Throne, dungeon keeper's spiritual successor:



    The game is currently available for $1 until Saturday morning(March 1, 2014 12am CST).
    After that the price increases from $1 to $2.

    So you can buy it now for 95% off or later for 90% off it's final price of $20.

    Click the logo below to reach it's game page:

    Cool to see this thread is still active nearly a decade after I started it.

    Now if only I could figure out what happened to the last nine years of my life ... gettin' old ... shiiiit.

    It's like Homeworld effects and UI with Eve backgrounds and slightly less interesting ship design than either. Looks nice though.

    Looks like a Supreme Commander clone with TA graphics, viewed form an odd perspective. Also it's on iOS.

    EDIT: Apparently all I'm going to do in this thread is make snarky comments about the originality of indie strategy devs :(
