About This Game

Tryst is a competitive Real Time Strategy Game that provides a unique, fast paced spin to the established strategy model that combines player choice with unit customization.

War has erupted on the lonely planet of Ishtonia IV. Humans and a sentient, mechanical alien race known as the Zali – former collaborators in the mining and processing of the rare compound, Lohum – now see each other as threats to their continued existence on the planet both had so tenuously shared.

Guide reluctant Overseer Oliver Petrovich and Rebel leader Aeryn Ozarr through the campaign where they witness the war breakout and fight their way through the madness to try and understand the cause of the sudden hostilities. What both have yet to realize is that they’re witnessing history, creating it, and somewhere down the line a tryst with destiny awaits.

Or else, wade into multiplayer as either the Ishtonian Alliance or the Zali, fighting for control over resources while trying to outwit your opponent and survive the worst Ishtonia can throw at you.

Key Features:


  • Unique Character Abilities and Upgrades – Every unit in Tryst comes with its own unique set of abilities and upgrades to choose from.

  • Competitive RTS Multiplayer – Supports upto 8 players with score tracking.

  • Consequences – Both Single and Multi-player feature choices that aren’t always obvious at first but can still affect gameplay down the line.

  • And Comebacks – For multiplayer, while choices do bear consequences, both good and bad, there is always a chance for a comeback. How? See feature 1!

  • Environmental Hazards – Don’t let the maps fool you… They’re not just playing fields. They’ll take every opportunity to strike back at you.

  • Keep on Going – You don’t have to worry about player who go offline or have to leave in the middle of a game. They’ll be replaced with competent AI immediately.

  • Unigine Graphics Engine – State of the art visuals powered by the UNIGINE engine.

This game is bad. It is badly made graphic wise, story wise (for the campaign), sound wise and play wise. Everything looks bad including the sound and talking. Everybody sound stupid in the game and well, could it be more rehashed crap we've seen 10 thousands time the last 15 years? For god sake starcraft 1 today after 15 years is a more inovative and fun game to play than that crap that come from who knows where.
I don't mind indie dev with poor graphics as long as the game is fun, but this crapfest is just not worth it. I got it for cheap on black friday sale and i still feel like i got riped off.

STAY FAR AWAY FROM THAT GAME! DO NOT PRESS THE BUY BUTTON, YOU WILL LEAD A HAPPIER LIFE!

The graphics and playstyle remind me of Universe at War, Command & Conquer, and Supreme Commander. The single player campaign is good. I don't know what everyone is complaining about. There are things that frustrate me a little such as no low health warnings for a Hero that you must keep alive to complete a mission. Most of the time I've failed missions it's because a Hero died without warning. Being attacked doesn't always trigger a warning either. There's a LOT that needs to be done to make the single player campaign more enjoyable. It's worth the $10 I paid during a holiday sale. I wouldn't pay more than $20 for this game. Haven't tried multiplayer and have no desire to because of how slow the game is. It took me 20 minutes to build an army of 100 soldiers and unit cap is 100. Painfully slow to build reinforcement units. I love the tech tree! It's simple and intuitive. Wish there were more upgrades to choose for each unit. Basic tech tree is also it's weakness it becomes too basic too quickly. The menus and hotkeys are good. Everything about this game is pretty good. I've really enjoyed it so far. I absolutely loved Universe at War and Supreme Commander. If you like those RTS games then you'll like Tryst.

Bought this game a while ago when finishing SC2 HOTS Campaign.
I thought that the game looked an awful lot like the original StarCraft in 3D and paid the full price (~18€).
BIG mistake, this game is no fun at all, despite of all the technical issues and the unifinished, unpolished state.

Honestly, just no.

It's just nothing I was looking for. An RTS with original, believable, fun, and exciting ideas. It fell face first in the first mission and the skirmish what just "wat."

I'm sorry but I found this unplayable.

Poor controls, and gameplay wounded any chance the game would carry me through on story. Spent no longer than 10 minutes on it. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Don't buy this. It's not jolly.
The developers pretended this was like StarCraft. It's not. Just not.
