Just spitballing here...

Coming from Matrix-litherine! Man they're really leveling up their production quality in the past few years! Selling on Steam (and other platforms) appears to have worked gangbusters for them.

It is real time, so a no-go for me.

While not all RTS games are the same, most of them are click-fests.  I may not want to live forever, but I want to outlast me fingers.   :buck2:

I don't find RTS or shooter games to be relaxing.

Me too and I am not even a huge Starship Troopers fan.

I would have loved a turn-based remake of the old Avalon Hill boardgame, based on the novel.  I think I still have the copy around somewhere.

I'm intrigued. It honestly looks like a pretty simple RTS, but maybe that will be perfect for a Starship Troopers game that is based on the movie. Could just be a lot of fun to sit back and blast away hordes of bugs, or get overrun by them. Not sure if I'll pick this up on release, but I'll likely try it at some point. Sometimes more casual games with a specific theme/flavor can be a nice change of pace and a lot of fun.
