Game in preproduction phase.

GDD Excerpt:

Introduction
1.1 Project Overview
Equation of Humanity (EoH) Is a concept for a real-time strategy (RTS) game in a science fiction setting. Players will take control of one of two armies, building bases, managing resources, and producing and commanding units in order to destroy other players and AI controlled factions on the battlefield.
EoH started out as a mod for another RTS game (Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars) named Tiberium Secrets. The mod aimed to add three new armies, each with unique aesthetics and mechanics that separated them both from existing elements within the base game and from each other. Tiberium Secrets had a partial release to good reception, especially considering how old the base game was at the time. However, the limitations of the base game and its license eventually proved insurmountable, and the mod was canceled before a full release. The ASI faction was finalized and shipped, along with minor but fundamental changes to the original factions.
EoH seeks to pick up where Tiberium Secrets left off. Like its predecessor, EoH has plans for three armies with radically different designs. Using the power of the Unreal Engine, EoH will be free of the constraints of a mod and will be commercially available as a standalone product.

1.2 Mission Statement
The factions come complete with diverse units, structures, mechanics, and lore. Players will take command of a global government faction intent on ensuring the survival of humanity without concern for red tape or ideologies or an artificial intelligence believing itself to be the next evolution of humanity.
This Game’s aim is to create an aesthetically pleasing, diverse and intriguing play-style for each faction, incorporating inspiration from many other works and real-world subjects. We also strive to recreate and surpass the original draw and impact of “Tiberium Secrets”. Striving to present theories of how the world/ universe works and operates.
1.3 Literary Themes
Furthermore, we’re seeking to explore the philosophical/sociological implications of the themes presented both by our factions and provoking players to ponder some of the larger questions & ethics in life surrounding the concepts, applications, and the places of:
Religion / Afterlife
Science
Technology
Military/Militarization
Local/Global Governments
Freedom/Free Will
Civil/Human Rights
Order/Chaos
(The above is a list of the macro level, and is not exhaustive)
We want to use our project as a means to critique, highlight, and/or contemplate the aforementioned subjects and how they may have ripple effects that go beyond our project, and into life itself.

2. Concept
In the future, people have discovered a way to digitize a person’s consciousness/soul and use it to control a mechanical body. This technology is originally intended to assist the dying or those trapped in a vegetative state.
Over time, healthy people start using it on themselves to transcend the limits of the human body. People can be faster, smarter, and live practically forever.
As more people digitize themselves, a movement begins with the belief that such an existence is the future.
As this movement grows, its adherents face opposition from those who believe that the human body and soul are sacred. Animosity grows between the “transhumanists” who want a digital existence and the “humanists” who believe that a traditional existence is best.
Eventually the transhumanists (who are a minority) decide that they cannot live peacefully under the rule of humanists. They decide to strike out against their oppressors and establish a safe haven for themselves.
Though outnumbered, the superior technical integration of the transhumanists gives them a decisive advantage in military capabilities. They are able to win many victories and drive the standing armies of the world before them.
The humanists, dismayed at the escalation and victories of the transhumanists, unite around prominent military, economic, and scientific figures who originally warned that something like this would happen and were initially disregarded. An ad hoc world government (Hegemony) is formed to organize the war effort.
United in their opposition to the transhumanists, the humanists, with their superior numbers and resources, are able to make an effective stand against the transhumanists.
The stage is set for a global confrontation between the two factions over the future of humanity.
