[Update: Greenlit] Stuck In Greenlight Limbo: ‘Stratega’


This time the spotlight will be shining on Stratega, a strategical genre mash-up with a promise of skill-testing challenge “in every mission”. Let’s see if we can’t help it escape the cold emptiness of Greenlight limbo, eh?

Stratega is a fast paced real time strategy game with a combination of Tower Defense. In this game you will have to gather minerals, survive wave of enemies attacks and invade the enemy base. The game features an addictive and unique gameplay where your skills will be put to test in every mission. Defend your Hive, expand it and take down your enemy to master Stratega.

Based on that description/quote alone, one might be fooled into thinking this is yet another generic tower defense trying to be, well, more. Fortunately, screenshots tell an entirely different story, as they reveal what just might be a significant amount of depth and a great need for tactics… if you are to survive. That said, I’m honestly not quite certain as to what’s going on with those massive ‘grids’, other than the fact that war is obviously being waged across the vast emptiness of space. On the other hand, I’m sure you, like me, have delved into a game of tactics before, and with even less prior knowledge to boot! Plus, this one does stray from the norm in terms of design, rather than simply trying to be yet another typical td with a hint of RTS, ya know?

So riddle me this, dear reader: why is Stratega still struggling to get through Greenlight? It’s not out just yet, but should be soon (I hope?). As such, how about visiting its Greenlight page and handing over a ‘yes’, if you like what you see? Remember: your vote matters!
