Tryst is a competitive Real Time Strategy Game that aims to provide a unique spin to the established strategy model that combines player choice with unit customization. Guide reluctant Overseer Oliver Petrovich and Rebel leader Aeryn Ozarr through the campaign where they witness the war breakout and fight their way through the madness to try and understand the cause of the sudden hostilities. What both have yet to realize is that they’re witnessing history, creating it, and somewhere down the line a tryst with destiny awaits. Or else, wade into multiplayer as either the Ishtonian Alliance or the Zali, fighting for control over resources while trying to outwit your opponent and survive the worst Ishtonia can throw at you. Unique Character Abilities and Upgrades – Every unit in Tryst comes with its own unique set of abilities and upgrades to choose from. Competitive RTS Multiplayer – Supports upto 8 players with score tracking.

Tryst isn’t about a rendezvous amid red satin and scented candles — it’s BlueGiant Interactive’supcoming real-time strategy game. Reading about it makes me loll my head like a flummoxed dog. Aside from the odd name, I wonder if it’s really trying to invade StarCraft territory, or if that’s only an illusion cast by its aesthetic. It’s definitely a look-a-like, but at least one impression indicates that it’s a faster game, where MOBA-style challenges mesh with resource management and base building.

Also, like many older RTSes, there are only two sides to the war. It’s humans vs. the Zali, a race of super-evolved robot miners who, at some point, stormed out of the humanity fan club. We were offered the opportunity to reveal a briefing on the Zali race, and I thought it would be a good way to learn more about how Tryst will test our tactical brains in its own way.

Tryst’s Ethos system splits the Zali’s war plan into three paths. Choose the Path of Silence for stealth and mobility upgrades, the Path of Strife for direct attacks, or the Path of Preservation for a defensive approach. The paths aren’t exclusive — different units can be directed differently. Zali units’ mechanical parts also allow them to merge with each other to become more powerful, or morph into defensive structures. That could be an interesting way to make sudden tactical shifts, such as by transforming an offensive force into a fortified base on the fly.Below are the Zali’s attributes according to BlueGiant:

  • Discipline & Dedication – Choose focus on a single Ethos path or disperse your available abilities out across multiple disciplines.
  • We are One – Merge different Zali units together to create more powerful machines of war.
  • No Right Path – Whether you choose to adhere to different Temples or commit completely to one; the abilities and units you choose to use will ensure that there’s never just one way to play the Zali.
  • Never Back Down – Just because your enemy got the drop on you once, doesn’t mean they can do it again. Specialized units and even more specific upgrades, ensure you have an answer for just about anything. The Zali are a race of counterunits waiting to be evolved.

Tryst is currently in closed beta, and its official site offers just a few more bites of information. I hope to speak with the developer about the game soon, but in the meantime, here are a couple more screens of the Zali in action. What do you think about Tryst’s place in the robustly-occupied RTS landscape?
