Voiceacting is pretty terrible too. Most bored "here they come" when charged by horde of killerbugs I have ever heard.

Standin' pretty. In this dust that was a city.
Looks awfully budget, but with the trigger happy Verhoeven's take on Starship Troopers (which became canonical anyway) it might actually be quite fun. Somehow the gameplay reminds me of Myth (pacing) and Dark Colony (troopers). If it won't become a tower defense, I'd might actually try it, at least if devs won't pull some scammy pricing like they did with Order Of Battle.

Looks like it will have a pretty buggy release.

And I generally avoid games that report bugs before even being playable.
Seriously makes you wonder about the number of bug reports on that one.
:yeah:

where is there a tanker throwing plasma? I can't find what you are talking about.

Left side, down, 00:23. Shooting at the troops on the walls. It lacks animations for basic movement.
Nice catch!
It is a good think the game will be RT tactics. I wonder how they will make trooper death meaningful, though, as they seem to come in large squads.

It looks like an exceptionally bland RTS with bad production values. I would have much rather had something turn-based or MechCommander with power armor if they wanted to go the real-time route.

Not sure why anyone would bother making an RTS in this day and age, especially without the budget to make it stand out.

If you look at the actual bugs ON the walls, they seem to have a ... shall we say limited selection of movement frames as well.
Same with the mech, which actually reminds me of ...

You guys, seriously....

"They aren't making any RTS games anymore!"

*someone makes an RTS game, showing obviously unfinished gameplay and a limited budget*
"This looks like shit and not at all like the perfect AAA that I want!"

I'd think twice about making RTS games as well with potential customers like that :lol:

You misunderstand. I'm happy it isn't another PG clone, but at least put a ALPHA VERSION somewhere or try not to make the half-finished animations and effects so blatant.

Again, I don't expect the sync-kills out of Dawn of War, I expect not to see bugs clipping through walls on a official release.

I mean, sure, they should have added something along the lines of "unfished alpha bla" in there.
Bit of a marketing fail.

But do you really need that to see that a final version of this game is pretty damn unlikely to have animations for their main "protagonists" that would rival Big Rigs?

They are doing their part by creating this game, are y'all?



Given the films production values, they managed surprisingly good creature effects with that bug warrior.

Holy shit, you are right.
Didn't see that as that is where YouTube displays the title (if you don't move your mouse away or go fullscreen).
Seems like I wasn't the only one, either.

Lesson learned: Don't put that there :lol:

UPDATE FROM FEDERAL NETWORK
We have an important update on the game.
5ba801abe4e2ac9ca813ada33f7b61521ca17285.jpg


The pandemic has sent more bugs our way.

When we first announced Starship Troopers: Terran Command in December 2019, FedNet soon became overwhelmed by the response and interest from people all over the globe who added it to their wishlists.

Therefore, the Federal Council authorized allocating additional resources toward development to ensure the quality of the game will meet fans' expectations.

Then the pandemic hit the team hard, compromising efficiency and disrupting plans for mobilizing a launch in 2020.

As a result of these factors, the game has now been moved to the second quarter of next year, but don't despair as you will soon be able to do your part with a chance to enlist in the closed beta tests. Join the Mobile Infantry and save the world. Service guarantees citizenship.

I think it’s stupid to reuse the movie’s style. It was closely tied to the political satire the movie pitched.
Anyway in this universe I wan’t to play as bugs.

The older squad based RTS managed to follow the movie conventions, while also having power armor. I hope this one has them too, because it was an important part of the book.

The only thing I notice is that line of sight seems a bit wonky. But I guess that goes for RTS games in general.

We're going to war! Are you doing your part?

Try the demo of Starship Troopers - Terran Command on October 1st

We have great news: Starship Troopers - Terran Command will be doing its part in the Steam Next Festival, and everyone will be able to download and play the demo.

The demo will contain two scenarios, including “Peace of Mine.” This is an early scenario that already features most of the game’s key mechanics: players will deploy the Mobile Infantry to defend a central outpost, which will serve as the staging point to reactivate mining facilities and clear out all bugs nests in the surrounding area.
