Game Description
Resources on planet Earth have been depleted through centuries of misuse. The discovery of an abundance of Helium-3 on the moon now sees major powers turning their attention to Earth’s one natural satellite with troops arriving to battle for lunar supremacy. Moon Rising puts you in control of these armies. Through action-packed turn-based strategy, be the first to conquer these untapped resources for your people, or die trying.

Many ways to play
Moon Rising's battles are turn-based and can be fought in many different ways:
  • Campaign - Full story-driven single player campaign mode. Journey across four different zones encountering different types of challenges as you try to outwit your opponents for precious Helium 3.

  • Multiplayer - Pit your wits against online opponents in fully asynchronous multiplayer. Actions are stored on a Moon-based server; take your turns at your leisure, plus get email notifications for your turns.

  • Skirmish - Play up to four players, human or AI, all locally on one machine.

That’s some funky hardware!
Take control of 6 multi-functional ground units to achieve your goal. Use astronauts and modified space vehicles for combat and reconnaissance, each with multiple weapons to suit your strategy. Machine guns, lasers, EMPs and Rockets are all part of the artillery that will aid your path to victory.

3 building types
Capture Refineries and Solar Stations to increase the power and potential of your army. Use your Headquarters to build additional units, Refineries to process Helium-3 for cold, hard cash, while Solar Stations are essential to power your assault.

The turn based strategy has me looking at this, but what has been shown, makes it look very boring, especially with no idea what's actually happening in the trailer. You just see "things" happening. Missles going here and there, and a bunch of stupid annoying trucks with flashing lights on them parking places.

A gameplay video with a bit of narrative would go a LONG way on selling me this.

No gameplay video, no gameplay information in the description… :-/

Looks like a very good turn based strategy game. It's like Starcraft, but turn based, which would give more opportunities to think about your next move versus just sending units out in chaos.
