Arkis Vir contains a mix of traditional turn-based strategy mechanics, and Euro mechanics, to bring you fast-paced yet in-depth matches that can be finished in one sitting.

  • Build your fleet with our 8 unique styles of ships
  • Unlock ship modifications that let you fine-tune your ship's strengths and weaknesses
  • Build powerful "Command Ships" that grant passive bonuses, and a powerful "Zenith" ability
  • Choose whether you want to conquer planets, or let them barter for freedom
  • Fight for control of randomly spawned rebel forces
  • Engage in political diplomacy with other players
  • Choose which "Tactical Actions" and "Strategic Actions" you will play throughout the game to keep your opponents at bay
  • Discover the deep diplomatic connections and rich history of every planet in Arkis Vir

Arkis Vir aims to bring the playing field to life by allowing you to make strategic decisions about how to handle planetary inhabitants and rebel forces throughout the game. Each decision you make will either reward you or destroy you later on, so choose wisely!

Arkis Vir is on Kickstarter!

News

Arkis Vir is on Kickstarter, and needs your pledges to become a reality! For those of you that don't know, Arkis Vir is a multiplayer online turn-based strategy game for PC, Linux, and Mac. We're aiming to bring a competitive atmosphere to the turn-based strategy world, which is something the market definitely lacks right now. It has all of the 4X themes, so fans of the genre should feel very at home, but it's a more accessible title for people that are new to those types of games.

We're also on Steam Greenlight, so head on over there and vote! (Hopefully it's a yes :) )
