About This Game

Athena Crisis is a modern retro turn-based strategy game that presents multiple gripping single-player campaigns alongside sync and async online multiplayer, as well as a full map and campaign editor, leaderboards, player skills and unit powers. Fans of Into The Breach, Advance Wars, or Fire Emblem will feel right at home in Athena Crisis!

Victory in Athena Crisis can be obtained in multiple ways: defeat all enemy units to clear a map, take over your opponent’s structures and bases, escort units to an escape zone, or simply survive for a period of time against overwhelming odds. Outwit, outbuild, and outfight your opponents to become the best Athena Crisis player.

Take Command

Command 40+ infantry, ground, naval and air units in turn-based battles. Each structure you capture will net you more resources each turn, which you can use to build more powerful units and expand even further! Here's the twist: the actions within your game world can echo across to other players' experiences, and vice versa - creating a dynamic, interconnected universe!

Think Tactically

Beware the fog! Proceeding too far behind enemy lines may leave your units exposed to attacks from unexpected directions, or even at risk of…dinosaur munches? Strategic thinking will be required to take advantage of terrain and lines of sight.

Skills and Powers

Customize your gameplay experience with unique unlockable skills and powers: Unlock new units, apply status effects or completely change how some unit mechanics work. And when you need to gain the upper hand, activate powers to unleash devastating counter attacks.

Just One More Game

A lighthearted, humorous story full of memorable characters will keep you playing long past when you planned to put your Steam Deck down. Just…one…more…map… And when you run out of official content, there are hours of community created campaigns and maps to play through!

Make Your Own Maps And Campaigns

A full map and campaign editor is included, allowing you to customize your own campaigns with your own dialogue or make challenging encounters for your friends to overcome. You can make single maps to play with friends and other community members, or create complete campaigns with entirely new dialogue and stories.

Play On The Go

Athena Crisis takes the phrase “multi-platform” to a whole new level: you can start a game on PC or Mac and seamlessly continue it on iPhone, Android, or Steam Deck, whether you’re playing the lengthy single-player campaign or an online skirmish with your friends.
