For you to win nobody can lose. That's the key premise in the paradoxical Skyward Collapse, a new "turn-based 4x simulation god-game" just revealed by the oracle at Arcen Games, the very same hailed for the fiendish AI War offerings.
Set high in the sky atop a floating landmass that you are actively constructing as the game progresses, you oversee two warring factions (Greeks and Norse). Via solo play or co-op, you play as "The Creator", helping both sides of the conflict -- granting each side buildings, resources, and even new citizens.
Unlike most strategy games, your goal isn't to have either of the sides win. "You" aren't represented by either of the sides, after all. Instead your goal is to balance this conflict as best you can so that neither side gets wiped out. You win by having the most points generated (read: most carnage) without either side committing genocide.
Such a divine concept, wouldn't you say? Well, founder Mr.Christopher M. Park expands upon this in his teasing announcement, that touches upon advanced strategy, mythology and more, so be sure to check it out.
If the Gods are willing the skies will part to deliver a beta 'before the end of April', with a heavenly 1.0 to grace us all in May.
