Machinations is a real-time strategy game where you manage and direct swarms of ships to take over and destroy your enemies. Plan your attacks carefully to gain the the most tactically advantageous Nodes (space-stations which build and house your fleet). Upgrade your Nodes with defensive lasers or build shipyards to augment your fleet. Capture super-weapons to cut swathes through your enemies' fleet. Play against up to three AI players in frantic, randomised melees matches. Or complete the Campaign mode to help Admiral Sudo (your robotic commander) reclaim his lost empire.
Machinations has been revived in a big way, with tons of new work being done after a very long lull (largely caused by a staff member deciding that a 10 month backpacking trip of the world was more important... I regret nothing!)
We have tons of new artwork including backgrounds and backdrop objects (think planets and asteroids, etc.), new menu screens, revamped old menu screens, new campaign content coming and more quickplay options that ever before.
Watch this space for a big release into beta coming soon. Or if you're desperate to check the game out, then head over to our testers group on Google Plus, join the group and then follow the link written below the group title to download our previous release (just try to ignore all the place-holder artwork... : P )
