Did you ever wonder what a classic turn-based strategy game like "Battle Isle" or "Panzer General" would look like today? What modern technology and graphics would add to such a game? Well, we did. As a result, we decided to bring back this great genre and its unique gameplay experience - for ourselves, for you and for all other gamers out there interested in turn-based strategy.
The Story & Setting
When the emperor of Kronos dies, the mighty Houses of the planet fight a ruthless war to settle the succession. The fraction that is able to seize control of the twelve holy temples and simultaneously light fires on each of them, appoints the new emperor and decides on the destiny of all.
In the latest war of succession the House of Telit used nuclear weapons for the first time, nearly destroying the planet in the process. Anyone that could afford it, fled to the neighboring planet Rhea, among them the newly elected emperor. Now, 200 years later and despite all available life-prolonging procedures this emperor has passed away and a fleet of spaceships is nearing Kronos, ready to fight the next – and possibly last – war to find a successor. In the campaign you initially fight as the House of Telit, the competition’s favorite, against the other two powerful factions, the Yerla Inc. and the Order of the Lumati. It soon turns out that those left behind on the planet, have established a new civilization. They call themselves The Residents and refuse to accept that their recovering planet will be once again used as the arena of a bloody competition.
In the second campaign the player takes on the role of The Residents. This time it’s not about epic attrition warfare, but rather about foiling the game of the superior enemies using clever guerilla tactics.
One of the coolest features of Battle Worlds: Kronos is the asynchronous and multi-platform multiplayer mode. You can compete against several friends or challengers from the community simultaneously. Whenever you have the chance, you can execute your moves and the results are sent to your opponent. They can react whenever their schedule allows for it, and so on. You play over a period of days or weeks, whenever you find the time for it – and if you play by browser, the game doesn’t even have to be installed on your system.
