About This Game

Isomer is an isometric strategy game inspired by classic turn based games from the 90s and many other more recent survival titles. It's open ended, sandbox and each world is procedurally generated leading to an almost unlimited number of different worlds to explore, mine, loot and conquer.

You play the role of the commander of an alien force sent to a distant planet tasked with setting up a mining outpost. You land with a dropship and a complement of minions who will mine for resources, build fortifications and blast any unwitting humans who venture too close. Each world has it's own distribution of biomes, resources and enemy facilties staffed with angry defenders keen on evicting you from their planet!

How long will you survive? What will you find on each world? How large will you build your base and armies?

Isomer is a great game that HAD potential... But unfortunatly the Developer of Isomer is either dead or he has some other rubish excuse for not completing this great idea of a game. Hopefully the Dev will be resurrected like jesus was but he can come back as developer jesus and finish the game he started to create. Other than that i would say its a good purchase but its not worth it until the developer decides to use social interaction with the people that payed to fund the creation of Isomer.

Game could be very nice and worth recommendation but it seems to be abondoned.

To top it off, the Dev does not find time to respond to players questions but he has time for deleting our posts from Steam forums.


Impression prior the game was abondoned:

After countless hours spent already in this game prior it got on Steam (still alpha yet delivering more then enough fun) i have to say- GREAT JOB!

This game allows you to take control over your enemy from the UFO/X-COM series ;) , in real time!

+ take real time control (pausing is allowed) over your pillaging alien army
+ mine, build, grind resources & xp, explore, defend, conquer and kill them all (the pitiful human scum)!
+ look at the clock every now and then to think how much time can pass in so little time :)
+ witness/take part in ;) the game development of a cool game with the Dev who really listens to his playerbase

-/+ i`d still love to have the possibility of using turn based fight system
-/+ graphic, personally i like it but some ppl are all for full 3d. Their loss :)
-/+ despite the obvious similarities to ufo/xcom the game plays more like gnomoria or towns

While what is there is quite enjoyable and held a lot of promise, it does indeed appear that the developer has abandoned the game.
My suggestion to anyone thinking of purchasing is don't!

Isomer is an interesting mixture of surivial and basebuilding gameplay from games such as Dwarf Fortress combined with combat and exploration elements inspired by the Xcom series. The overall premise can be summed as reverse Xcom, you play as an alien force stumbling upon an already habited planet yet seeking to colonize never the less. Starting off with your humble dropship and ten workers, it is your job to survive and thrive in an hostile world. Overall in its inital steam release status, I'd say that Isomer is a very promising game. Currently I feel as though the foundations for a great base building and exploration are present though the content may be too barebones for some. So far I've noticed four diffrent unit classes, a wide array of generated structures for the player to explore and various different building blocks for the player to use. However the selection of middle and late game structures don't seem to be implemented. For example you can build your base to the extent of its layout with lights and lifts to different floors, but there are no doors present in the game nor any sizeable modules and things to fill up these rooms apart from soils to contain reasources.
