Yeah. One of those times when our headline convention doesn’t quite work with a game’s name, which in this case should be an all lower-case ‘iubes’. Anyway, iubes is a peculiar sort of RTS, one which involves AI cube creatures living on the inside of a sphere. It looks like a high-speed God game, but with a lot of other RTS elements thrown in, plus, well, it doesn’t quite look like anything else. As the developer opines, “I don’t know exactly how to categorize this game. It’s a half real-time strategy game, half god-game, with maybe some other halves…” There’s a beta sign up available for you to register interest.
You can watch a couple of minutes of it below.
Fascinating stuff, even if it is pretty hard to figure out what’s going. For a better idea have a look at the details on this page, where it explains some of the concepts.
