    Tags: Punk Wars; Strategy Forge

    Punk Wars, the "combat-oriented 4x strategy game" by Strategy Forge, has just been released for the population at large to enjoy.

    I wanted to say that the game was about to prove that punk's not dead, but alas, to my major disappointment, it isn't about leatherclad dudes sporting weird hairdos bashing one another with gaspipes, but rather about your standard struggle for dominance in a post-apo scenario with four [technology]punk factions. Nevertheless, here's what it promises, and a release trailer on top, because why not:



    The years go by and another cycle has come to an end. Our civilisation has crumbled due to our greed and selfishness. Now we know that to avoid repeating the same mistakes, we need to stand united… and ours is the banner, under which humanity can thrive again. Our technology, philosophy and way of life are the ones that can finally bring happiness to the world… we just need to convince a few stubborn leaders...

    Punk Wars is a combat and tactics-oriented strategy drawing inspiration from the classic turn-based 4X titles. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, in which the ruins of a once powerful megacity become the arena for a deadly fight between four newly emerged corporations, trying to assert dominance for both their unique technology and philosophy of life.

    Become the powerful leader of the mesianic steampunk, tenebrous dieselpunk, militaristic steelpunk or technocratic atompunk; explore the ruins of a bygone civilization, where resources are scarce and the dangers way too common. Develop your infrastructure and technology that will secure your triumph. Create a winning strategy and a playstyle for each faction, utilising their distinctive skills and units.
    • Take control of one of the four powerful corporations - Steampunk, Dieselpunk, Atompunk or Steelpunk - and use its unique skillset to lead it to glory.
    • Explore the mysteries of a ruined, post-apocalyptic megacity.
    • Level up your units and engage in fierce battles that will challenge your tactical sense.
    • Grow your scientific, industrial and military infrastructure, creating advanced supply chains.
    • Seek, garner and wisely use scarce resources.
    • Unite humanity and lead it to the new era of peace and prosperity!
    Punk Wars is available on Steam and GOG for roughly 70 Polish zloty, or the equivalent in local currency. Get it while it's hot to receive a 10% discount.

    The entire time I watched that trailer, I was waiting for a joke. That's an extremely comical-sounding voice over.

    It's more like 30 sluts now with inflation.

    Really good idea to use that as faction.
    Not good enough to make me check out an indie 4X, but really good.

    Shit, now that I think about it, 4x TBS set in a Dune universe would be pretty amazing. Pretty weird we didn't get anything like that considering the recent movie debut.

    I tried it for roughly 15 minutes before I was so annoyed by the interface that I quit and uninstalled.
