A new war is brewing. A violent conflict, between the Six Colonies, each one convinced that it was in the right, each one sure of its own ability to defeat its enemies. But they need Generals. They need soldiers. They need you.

At the moment, Never is looking to be about the most promising. As mentioned on the comments on the main page, there has been no shortage of attempts:

How do you start a single-player game in offline mode? The manual has nothing on that, nor does the online one (wiki) which just tells you how to play the game when you actually get in there.

There is no "Offline" mode. Not really anyway (yet). The way you start a singleplayer game is to join a battle on the server, add a bot, hit start.

There are other ways to make it happen, such as starting via sandboxing but even then the AI wouldn't show up (Sandboxing is used for dev testing). Moreover, unfortunately due to the unpredictable nature of Shard (IE it's broken every other engine release and it's maintainer doesn't bother to fix it), I can't include it with the game, so the only SP atm is Survival Mode.

The "real" sp experience will mostly be in the form of the campaign.

You should have a look at the dev stream on G+. I post small dev updates there that aren't worthy of the fanfare (not to mention effort and time consuming process) of posting here and on the Evolution RTS website.
