What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We quit our jobs in order to completely devote ourselves to this game. Early access will give us the ability to test over the Steam network extensively while giving players the opportunity to enjoy our game much earlier than a standard release. It will also help us find out which systems function as expected versus what hurdles we have to overcome. We have spent the last 3 years building our beloved world and have many exciting plans for the future.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“About 2 years.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Our plans for version 1.0 are pretty bold; an upscaled 8 player map, Empire and Rebel factions, Commoner subfactions, and a more in-depth magic system are all things we'd really love to include.

One long-term goal is to create a single-player campaign to delve into the story of the Rebellion, but this is after we are confident about the functionality of the core game. We have an entire world history waiting to be introduced.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Early Access includes up to 6 player multiplayer, wave defense, and the Commoner faction. We'll be spending most of our time adding and making improvements to the core systems while getting the Empire and Rebel factions ready to play.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“As we increase content in the game, we may increase the price to reflect the new content and features. We are making this game because we have a passion for the industry and we want as many players to enjoy our world as possible. Our product will always be fairly priced to reflect that vision.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We have a discord and a youtube channel where members of our community can give feedback, talk directly to us or find new people to play with.

Any thoughts, comments, or opinions are welcome and we appreciate the input!”

About This Game

The Rebellion's main concept is blending traditional RTS elements with 3rd person action. You can change your camera at any time to possess your hero, build structures, or give orders. You have the option to equip every single unit in your army with whatever weapons and armor you want; including your hero. Each armor set has different benefits that make your units more powerful, but slower. The right gear can turn a friendly unit into a miniboss waiting for your command!

Key Features

Take Control from Above or Join the Battlefield
Command armies from afar or lead your warriors up close and personal with a specialized hero unit. You can quickly change your perspective to fight in 3rd person, then seamlessly transition to RTS view to build your base, manage units, or craft equipment!

Limitless Individual Unit Equipment Customization
You make the decisions for the composition of your army down to the weapons and armor your men use. Each unit can be outfitted as you see fit quickly and simply.

Online Multiplayer
Engage in dynamic and strategic warfare against other players or AI in a team-based or free for all environment.

Knock Down and Poise System
Units can be staggered or knocked down based on the size and weight of a weapon! Units recovering from being knocked down are extremely vulnerable! The armor a unit is wearing can also increase its resiliency.

Wave Defense Survival
Hone your skills alone or online with friends in a randomized wave defense mode. Put your strategic ability to the ultimate test against hordes of increasingly difficult AI's. They will throw everything at you! How long can you survive?

If you give our game a chance we can promise you three things. We will always be open and honest, never be pay-to-win, and never forget that making exciting games for you to enjoy is why we started this journey. I hope you will come along with us! We quit our jobs three years ago to create this game and we will never give up on our passion!
