Welcome to another Indie Spotlight! This week we’re featuring a three faction, strategy, space warfare game made by Bat Country Games — love the Hunter S. Thompson reference — titled Aeon Command.
The game is currently in it’s final Alpha stages and features three factions — The Alliance, Exile,s and Cyborgs — who are fighting over a resource full nebula. When completed, the game will have 24 playable missions, over 20 different ships and abilities, a skirmish mode with multiple difficulty levels, and a persistent upgrade system.
What makes Aeon Command different from a lot of strategy games is that rather than having a large map that players must keep track of things, the playing field is narrowed to a lane, creating a tug-of-war style of play.
The first few maps start out simply, allowing the player just a few choices in ships, but the game quickly advances and allows for plenty of options.
For those looking to try Aeon Command out, it has recently been released on Desura. As stated, it is currently in Alpha, but you can go ahead and purchase the game for $4.99. This cost covers the full version.
And, if you’re not sure about throwing down five bucks for a game that’s still in Alpha, you can download the demo for free. If you do play the demo or pick up the game, let us — and the devs — know what you think.
