Oh jeez, oh jeez. I was far more excited about Interloper than I let on in my first glance back in September. For those that missed that, it’s a gorgeous 2D RTS that evokes Hearthstone in how it breaks down the genre to its simplest form.
Games are won through capturing territory with an unarmed but invulnerable Sentinal. Some areas have structures in them with special properties – constructing smaller ships, combining them into larger ones with different abilities or simply blocking the way. Each match takes less than five minutes and is a hectic affair of attack, counter-attack and positioning. Before I had just a trailer to base my hopes on, showing off the basics. Now I’ve had a go of an alpha build and it is superb.
