Rts

Real-time strategy (RTS) is a sub-genre of strategy video games which does not progress incrementally in turns. Brett Sperry is credited with coining the term to market Dune II.In an RTS, as in other wargames, the participants position and maneuver units and structures under their control to secure areas of the map and/or destroy their opponents' assets. In a typical RTS, it is possible to create additional units and structures during the course of a game. This is generally limited by a requirement to expend accumulated resources. These resources are in turn garnered by controlling special points on the map and/or possessing certain types of units and structures devoted to this purpose.

  • Grey Goo launch trailer gets knee-deep in story

    … Petroglyph’s newest is a throwback RTS with some pretty awesome, well, Goo. Grey Goo might sound kind of ‘cute’, but as you can see, this gunk is anything but.

    … One of the more promising RTS’ on the way, Tindalos Interactive’s Etherium looks loaded with alien races and plenty of action. It might seem a lithe silly at first, but Etherium has me excited because of the ways that it’s not a current generation RTS.

    …. Throughout the story, players will play as three different factions, with each having its own story and gameplay differences. The core game is still a RTS, and the three factions play the same mechanically. It’s the technical small differences that separate them from each other.
