Story:
Folvos is one of the least developed planets in the sector; small and primarily covered by desert, it is served by a mere two spaceports. The vast majority of the citizens of the Folvos Republic live in the northern-most areas, which are covered by dense vegetation.

Some citizens however, are forced to live among the harsh desert conditions, and as a result find themselves under constant threat from gunmen and smugglers.

Fighting for their lives, certain factions of the Folvos Republic have been forced to form groups of warriors, the so-called Ramushaks, in order to ensure not only their safety, but their very survival. Frequent conflicts between Ramushaks and local pirates have little to salvage the sullied reputation Folvos earned itself in recent years.

However, the Vasgalan Empire has begun to show considerable interest in this otherwise-forgettable little planet. With a grip that extends over four planets, Emperor Alfred Vasgalan II has found himself a popular, if extreme ruler. Though starved of basic freedoms, his people believe him to be just and fair, and support his charismatic drive for progress.

One of the most fierce opponents of the Empire is the Surolak Republic, the most prolific weapon producers in the known galaxy. Their weapons form one of the most stable parts of the otherwise fragile Folvos economy, which makes the Vasgalan Empire’s interest in the tiny colony all the more worrisome.

On a recent research mission to Folvos, Vasgalan scientists uncovered a new anomalous material with many strange properties, including energy manipulation. They christened it Refunium.

Seizing the opportunity to claim this new energy source as their own, the Vagalans rallied their troops for a hard and fast strike on Folvos under the assumption that Refunium was exclusive to this one, tiny planet.

Attempts to claim Folvos as the Empire’s fifth planet met with little resistance; at the eleventh hour, diplomats managed to secure a non-aggression pact with the Surolaks while persuading the Folvos government to assimilate with the Empire.

It is an unstable and unholy alliance. Now, nothing stands in the way the Vasgalans peaceful occupation of Folvos, pioneered by young Duke Albert Vasgalan, the Emperor’s own son.

Unbeknown to him, a rebel army is forming in the shadows of Folvos, thirsty for independence.

War is inevitable...

I love the old school turn based strategy. I'll upvote and buy it for steam, if it gets released. If not, I'll wait a few months and buy it at the website.

The units look very similar to Command and Conquer but that's not a bad thing =)

Units look pretty tiny

This just looks way too generic. I have seen at least 30 games in the past year or two that looks exactly the same.
