The planet Opulentium

is a hotly contested world; it harbours unprecedented amounts of the precious thermo-nuclear fuel, Helium-3. Fighting for mastery of this war torn world are 4 factions: The Terra Firma - representatives of the old Earth government; the Callidus - a technological superpower; the Avaritia - multi-trillion credit, mining corporation; and the Mutari - a rogue AI race, hell-bent on fuelling its new, hungry war machine. Opulentium is an attempt to blend elements of shooter gameplay with strategy, where players will colonise maps with factories, resource extractors and defensive positions, whilst leading armies to eradicate enemies, attempting to secure precious Helium-3. The game will focus on AI mechanics and unique environments, as well as tackling the difficulty of managing an RTS style base system in the 3rd person.Opulentium is currently in prototype phase; as it is a highly ambitious idea, a lot of time will be invested into bridging the gap between the strategy and shooter genres. Most content as of now will be demonstrating ideas and game mechanics, hopefully with an alpha version within a year/18 months, given steadily increasing progress. Specific game mechanics and details will be mentioned as they are implemented. Criticism (harsh or otherwise) is always welcome.If the project comes to fruition, one should expect:

  • Several maps on which to wage combat
  • A multiple tiered tech system, with increasing destruction in the late game
  • Upgradeable units and research
  • A territorial system, dividing the map into claimable sections
  • Skirmish mode (Single-player, Multiplayer, Co-op)
  • Campaign mode (Single-player, Multiplayer, Co-op)
  • Multiple victory conditions

Ideas may be subjected to radical change, or outright removal. Direct any questions to David Specht at david.Specht@live.de.

So it's like old Supreme Commander games, but 3rd person camera. That's a game I can get behind. Joke unintended.
