Rogue-like + fast RTS combat = C-wars. Try Alpha demo on PC/Mac/Linux/Android.

1- About this game
  • Special/Random encounters in Cyberpunk Sci-fi world view
  • Permanent death
  • Combat system: a RTS on grids
  • Fast combat: 8 mins MAXI per

Old school rogue-like gameplay marries a cyberpunk apocalyptic world view with an original combat system.

Additional to the numerous special/random encounters commonly seen in a regular rogue-like game, we have forged an unique combat system. It follows RTS' spirit with ARPG's essence. Our goal is to amplify units collaboration and micromanagement.

It's a magnificent combination of retro-style visuals and innovative gameplay.

2- Plot

A global nuclear war reset humans' achievements. Luna base was the final stand of our civilization. 150 years later, Alpha, the largest Luna city, was infected by zombies. Use human wave attack to rush the infected city, or strike with smart strategy. It all depends on you - our final hope.

Please save the mankind.

Q: Playable demo?

Q: Inspiration?
  • Super Robot War: Animation-making skills
  • Fallout: Apocalyptic theme
  • CoD: summoning soldiers, combat rewards
  • Dead space: [It's more at the world view level] Nano machine implantation and enhance

A: It's a rogue-like, so a sub-genre of RPG. It's not exactly like a traditional RPG where you role play a hero. But we do have some classic RPG elements integrated such as level up your heroes, get more skills, build/buy/get weapons and encounters, etc.

Q: Why do you have the guys in normal clothing and girls in booty shorts? That's not cool.
A: That one girl in shorts is Valky, heir of Gwen Indus, a spoiled and rebellious rich kid who resents formal military uniforms. Actually it was her request to make her stand out with a jumpsuit especially designed for her. Generally speaking, most girls in SpeOps of Luna Defense Forces wear formal uniforms. But oh well, for an elite sniper like Valky, we can make some exceptions, right? :P

Q: Zombie? Again??
A: Don't you think zombies are kinda cute? ^^ They look like humans but are so slow and everywhere! Be cautious though, as zombies are not your only opponents in C-Wars! There are also super tank Creatures and the seemingly weak but actually strongest (and female) Boss in C-Wars - "Weapon." If you don't like zombies, just see them as low level mutants (and that's what they really are) and perhaps that way you would be happier.

Checked their kickstarter page, apparently they FINISHED beta at the end of july, so it's not dead after all!

Just wondering if this died or something? Because their last announcment on steam was in 2013 and it's almost 2015, where as it says the release date was set for early 2014. Plus I know this wouldn't be their first game that they dropped, so anyone able to give me an update? :P
