Grand strategy with turn-based tactical combat, set in a deep simulation of an entire solar system and its billions of inhabitants. You are the last of a murdered race, determined to unify or destroy the 8 others. But you must work from the shadows, using superior technology -- bring your cape and cowl.
Greetings, Hydral. I will be your computer for this "grand strategy campaign with turn-based tactical combat." I think that's code for "we're going to die."
Our solar system is vast and complicated, and I sense you are a little dimwitted -- so I tell you what, let's start with the simple stuff. Like escaping with this flagship you just hijacked from a bunch of angry robots. That seems important. I also think we can ingratiate ourselves to other races by bringing them the spacefaring technology they are struggling to develop. Then we'll see from there.
Please excuse my impertinence, but I believe you are the last of a murdered race, yes? My records note you Hydrals were the dictators of the solar system, so basically you had it coming. And by "it," I mean the moon that smacked into your homeworld. Hmm. So people really aren't going to like you until they get to know you. Well, your one advantage is only you can use the scattered remnants of advanced Hydral technology. Now all you need is a cape and cowl, and you're a superhero. Still, they outnumber us tens of trillions to one.
Look, I'm not going to tell you what to do. My understanding is that you're trying to form the solar system's first-and-last unified federation, and that's a noble enough cause. But right now nobody wants that except you, and you've got 8 very diverse, very angry races to either unify or exterminate. So... good luck with that. I'll help how I can.
The Last Federation is a really unique game in that it is a strategy/tactics game set inside a simulation game. Check out its game page for details, or swing by the forums for the game. This is Arcen's largest title ever, and we're really excited to share it with folks.
Alpha Information! Private alpha testing with players is currently in progress, and we will be adding more players throughout the coming weeks leading up to release. If you're interested in signing up, please see this forum post.
Screenshots for you! The launch of the game is less than two weeks away, so these are the launch screenshots -- these particular screens aren't going to be changing much in terms of how they look between now and then, although some others are still very much in the process of being polished.
