Ashes of The Singularity [official site] is the Stardock-published, Oxide-developed uber-RTS in which you control thousands of units. I can barely keep control of one toddler and one cat, so I’m already scared. Apparently the trick is to “build “meta-units” that act together as a single, coherent, massive unit” though, so I guess I’ll try a cut’n’shut on my household’s junior lifeforms and see if it works out. Anyway, this ‘first 64-bit RTS’ looks pretty spectacular, but the finished version is a long way off and specs look a little scary to anyone with a humbler PC. A paid alpha’s been available for a couple of months, but it’s now joined by a benchmarking tool with which you can a) splatter pretty scenes all over your screen and b) compare genital sizes.
