Arcen studio : Have a look
« on: January 29, 2016, 03:12:13 pm »

Hello,
Sry for my english

You may know some of Arcen games (AI War : Fleet Command, The Last federation...)
This studio just released Starward Rogue http://store.steampowered.com/app/410820, a roguelite. And now finish Stars Beyond Reach http://store.steampowered.com/app/354480/ (4X/citybuilder, release Q2).

Why this post ?
Tough times. Chris Park just posted news: https://arcengames.com/great-work-on-starward-rogue-team-now-youre-all-laid-off/

Have a look to their games : https://arcengames.com/arcen-store/, http://store.steampowered.com/app/410820
And feel free to get them^^

-AI : strat game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72r5vY7T0eY&list=PLGqHdntcXSYq_846nY76OXD26NFA3AU6v
Humanity has been almost completely destroyed by AIs, vastly more powerful. You strike back (Solo/Coop). But don't destroy everything, you gonna drag AI attention (it's busy away in Galaxy). Take planets you really need (base, ressources), destroy Stations to get specific knowledges/vessels, plenty of ships/turrets of any kind (prepare your fight!)... AI strategy is very accurate ^^
-The Last federation : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qObDiNA67ZE
You re alone and try to make a Federation with several civilizations. Trade, fight, help, make diplo arrangements... Check this game !


I'm not part of Arcen. Just a lambda player who will be really sorry if this studio disappears. They got a "touch", their games are different.
So... Voilą!

Have a look and forward this !

Yeah, we've been discussing it a bit in this thread.

I'm kind of hoping Stars Beyond Reach turns out to be enough of a hit for them to pull through.  Its certainly something I'm very interested in.

I loved The Last federation, I can't think of any other series that attempts something like that. That and playing a giant Hydra monster is kinda amusing.

Yeah, I think that was my favorite too.  Except those guys where you got to beat the clan leaders in a bullet hell sequence and they've got a billion health always ruined my plans.   :P
