It is the distant future. Humanity have never dreamt of surviving for so long. The few hundred human beings have managed to construct Arcan Central, and hide from the outer world. From the many horrors they had to suffer. Somehow, Earth had become a barren wasteland, but no one seems to remember why did that happen. Have wars scorched our planet? Was it some kind of accident that destroyed almost any lifeform on our homeworld? The council means everything. They are the protection, the safety... they live to serve humanity. To prevent any of the council members from gaining too much power, a Controller is elected from the inhabitants. This Controller must command the Droid army, created by the Council. Arcan is a unique sci-fi turn-based strategy game, with significant RPG elements. All characters on a map have the ability to evolve, and even combine their abilities with other units. So, despite the relatively small amount of unit types, it is impossible to fight the same battle twice

After more than two years of work (which was mostly balancing and graphics programming), the game is finally released! Let's see what has been accomplished, and what is to come.


Arcan's full version contains all the 15 campaign levels, which tells the story of Arcan, the future of humankind, and even the origin of the mighty Serpents is revealed. What the player gets is a unique turn-based strategy game with significant RPG elements, and many multiplayer capabilities, with a chatroom included in the WPServer provided.


There is a "Support Us!.txt" in the main folder of Arcan. If people donate us some money (the amount can range from very little to a lot, we appreciate everything we get), then we'll see that people want us to continue working on the game, and we'll release patches, and even expansion sets, in which we continue the story, enhance the multiplayer, and even include things you request!

Download and enjoy the full version of the game!

I played the game yesterday for a couple of hours, and I wanted to say thank you!
It's a bit too slow IMO, but it's still a nice game :)
