What began as a conflict over the transfer of consciousness from flesh to machines escalated into a war which has decimated a million worlds. The Core and the Arm have all but exhausted the resources of a galaxy in their struggle for domination. Both sides now crippled beyond repair, the remnants of their armies continue to battle on ravaged planets, their hatred fuelled by over four thousand years of total war. This is a fight to the death. For each side, the only acceptable outcome is the complete elimination of the other.

“Screeps” is a wordplay for “scripts” and “creeps.” It is an MMO RTS game for programmers in an open persistent shared world. Each player uses JavaScript (or compilers of other languages into JavaScript) to write AI of his or her colony of units (“creeps”) which live and operate in real time even while the player is offline. The game world is generated procedurally and consists of rooms. Players compete for controlling these rooms by mining resources, developing infrastructure, and commanding armies.

Screeps can also be called a sandbox game for programmers since it has no definite goals. Instead, it offers players a fully programmable game world, means to interact with each other within it, and JavaScript API to control game objects. This allows for many possible outcomes for each player and an open-ended nature of the game.

Immerse yourself in the dangerous world of America’s Wild West – as you encounter famous historical events of the late 1800’s and come up against some of the amazing inventions of this period.

Bounty Train aims to bring back the “good old days” of steam railways, bandit attacks and cross-country rail journeys to life in a survival-railroad simulation unlike any other.

As young Walter, the son of a railroad tycoon, you start off with everything good in life, and have it quickly stripped away. That means it’s up to you to preserve the family’s legacy as rail tycoon, working to connect both coasts of America via a trans-continental railroad. But, it’s never as simple as it sounds, and you’ll face plenty of competition, from other rail barons to local bandits, angry Native tribes and much more.

In Bounty Train, you’ll learn all about managing a train – from buying the best steam engines you can afford, to keeping them fueled and in good repair as you race from town to town, delivering cargo and completing tasks for your “clients.” And don’t forget, there’s always someone looking to steal your cargo or even your train, so you’ll want to hire a hardy crew of gunslingers.

Ashes of the Singularity is a real-time strategy game set in humanity’s not-so-distant future. What it means to be human has changed with the coming of the singularity.

In the post-human economy, sentience is now the most valuable commodity in the universe. The only way to acquire more of that is through the control of Turinium – programmable matter – which can extend consciousness to levels we can't even imagine. Worlds are being transformed into this substance and wars are now being fought across the galaxy for control of those worlds.

Each conflict takes place across an entire world. It isn't a skirmish. It's a war. Thousands of units are constantly constructed and sent across the planet with the player directing entire armies, in real time, to capture key resources in an effort to gain total control of the planet.
