by

Intergalactic combat can be quite foul. But it can also be fowl – as Montreal-based developer team Artifice Studio will surely prove with their latest title Conflicks. The indie game is out for early access on Steam and aims to unite the complexity of real-time strategy (RTS) with the intuitive accessibility of physics-based games.

What would have happened to humanity if Leonardo Da Vinci had transmuted egg yolks into infinitely-powerful metamatter in the 16th century? Well – play Conflicks and you might find out. Choose a faction and flick to control spaceships from its military fleet. Each fleet has its own unique movement and special powers.

“When building the Conflicks universe, we wanted to take an absurd framework – steampunk deep-space Renaissance swashbucklers exploiting poultry for power – and play it completely straight,” says Yan Pepin, creative director at Artifice Studio. He thinks the result is a “politically complex, grounded world that feels believable and that calls into question a lot of the issues we struggle with today.“ – with chicken.

At launch, Conflicks will include an extensive and narratively cohesive single-player 21-mission campaign and friendly and competitive multiplayer. You can either fight for a common cause – or alone in fierce free-for-all match-ups.

The indie game’s lovely game art seems promising: Could be fun – not just for chicken-lovers …
