Achron is Out Now, Tries to Make Everyone Feel Like the Dumbest Person On the Planet

on August 30, 2011 1:00 PM

Achron is an indie RTS that’s been in development for about two years, and it’s finally available to purchase on Steam now. I first heard about it earlier in the year, while it was in the alpha phase, and it was an intriguing premise. I’m not even a huge fan of real-time strategy games, but this one boasted a gameplay mechanic that’s truly brain-asploding: the ability to freely time travel within the game.

Confused? Yeah, I am too, but the idea is you can apparently create units and not only place them in any location, but also place them in any portion of the timeline of your battle as well. If you’re even more confused, you’re not the only one, and as I’ve yet to play this sucker, I can’t exactly clarify. One thing’s for sure; I’m sure as hell glad I’m not the one that has to review this.

It sounds immensely fun though, and many outlets are already heaping mounds of praise on Achron, so I suppose it’s worth try. Cop it on the Steam page here, as always with a special discounted price the first week.
