Fractured State is an urban combat real time strategy game that takes place in the pseudo diesel/steam punk decay of the nation of Laperia.

After discovering a volatile but naturally occurring mineral which their leaders coined "Laperite" the nation grew enormously in wealth and influence with an explosion in technological advancements. The engine of their sprawling cities runs not only on Laperite - and it's purified liquid form Laperium - but also on the backs of slaves, prisoners, and those deemed "unsavory" by the Industrialist Guilds.

The largest group in the labor force is made up of the followers of an ancient religion which idolized the relics of a civilization that has long passed. One opportunistic man will band these followers together and form the Children of the Ancients. Laperia is suddenly faced with a revolution and all out civil war.

It has been a bit since we last posted. We have been pushing in a more planned manner towards the alpha (or at least we are attempting organization). A result of this is that I have had to design some menu UI for various screens that Matt wanted to implement.

First then is the starting screen. I grouped the buttons that will be more commonly selected, and which pertain more directly to the gameplay, along the top. Down below you will be able to access the editor to make/edit maps (and potentially some other features). The lore button will take you into character bios, story basics, and hopefully some graphic novellas. Neither of the bottom buttons currently has a UI designed for them, although the editor is in and working.

 
The flags will eventually get more detail. For now they can at least give you a sense of what will first greet you when the game loads.

So after you load up you will need to make a profile (the first time, after that it will retain the one you were using when you closed the game). The side panes and profile selector will toggle on and off depending on what you are doing.

Next up is the server browser.

And lastly- the game lobby. The top right frame will house the map preview and the lower right frame will house the game options once we implement them.

If you have any thoughts/questions/suggestions let us know. We should have some new in game UI to show in the coming weeks.

can you actually try out doing this as a mod (or official expansion if the developers agree, last year they made a mod into an official DLC )for the game "Mount&Blade : Warband" since the game is very moddable game and the singleplayer mixes RTS with some Third-person medieval combat fighting game for battles.. and the multiplayer is the usual DM,TDM,CTf and battles and sieges and even some mods that players made such as invasion, sea battles, etc.

Our goal has always been to make a game with a flexible modding API and to support the mods that come out of the community. I'm not sure what our motivation would be to make a mod instead of a standalone game.

So, is it a RTS game with nation building?

While we do have ideas for some persistent elements in the game we currently have no plans to implement a nation building mechanic.
