Planetary Subcommanders Have It In For You

The AI's gotten kind of upset. Somewhere along the way it decided you puny humans need more interesting ways to lose (or win, if you're one of those people, but who are we to judge).  Vengeance of the Machine offers new tools to the player (like Core Turret Controllers) and a new frontal-confrontation victory condition (Showdown Devices), but focuses on enhancing the already-incredible variety of your main opponent: the AI. The possibilities grow exponentially with the addition of the new "Dual Type AI" system (ever wonder what a single AI player would be like with Thief AND Speed-Racer? Find out!), AI Planetary Subcommanders, and Dire Guardians.  They say the best stories revolve around an awesome villain, and this expansion takes AI War's villainy to new heights.

This Is An Expansion To AI War: Fleet Command

"You are outgunned. You are massively outnumbered. You must win." These are your orders. Humanity has already fought its war against the machines -- and lost. Your job is to lead the last stragglers of humankind in this unique "grand strategic 4X tower defense RTS" (as one reviewer called it). AI War is a strategy game where trying to conquer everything will bring the full might of the AI overlords crashing down, while smart tactics and guerrilla raids will carry the day. But the AI is just as smart as you... Read More
