Grey Goo

A classic science-fiction real-time strategy game inspired by the golden age of RTS and titles from the 90s. It was developed by Petroglyph Games, a studio established by the creators of the cult Command & Conquer series, as well as Star Wars: Empire at War, among other titles. The story takes place in the distant future on one of the human colonies called Ecosystem Nine. Three warring factions compete for control over the planet: humans, space refugees (Betas), and the eponymous nanobots known as Goo. Naturally, each side of the conflict has their own units, buildings, and technologies. The gameplay combines the mechanics of the RTS classics with modern graphics and refurbished interface. It focuses on resource gathering, base development, and challenging tactical combat. At the same time, the developers dropped the necessity of controlling every single unit, so the players can concentrate on managing the larger picture of the battlefield.

Story

The action takes place in the distant future, five hundred years after the humanity had begun colonizing other star systems. The events are set on the planet called Ecosystem Nine which is an object of struggle between three factions: humans, space refugees (Betas), and murderous nanobots known as Goo. Each side of the conflict has their own units, buildings, and technologies

Gameplay

The developersí goal was to return to the style which was popular in the genre back in the 90s, and modernize it in a way that makes it enjoyable to contemporary players. It means abandoning the necessity of controlling every single unit and focusing on management on the macro-scale, especially gathering resources, building bases, and raising armies.

All of the mentioned actions are performed with the use of a simple interface that does not force the player to remember tens of keyboard hotkeys, while victory requires devising a good strategic plan instead of boasting quick reflexes during the battles.

Game modes

Grey Goo for PC / Windows offers a story campaign and a multiplayer mode based on the Steamworks system. At the same time, it is also possible to play via LAN.
