Breaking the Mold: Desynced Factory Game RTS Uses Programmable Drones Instead of Conveyor Belts
A breath of fresh air in the real-time strategy (RTS) game genre, Desynced is revolutionizing the factory game arena with an innovative approach. Set to appear in Early Access, this upcoming offering from Stage Games is set to excite with the option of programmable drones, relinquishing the traditional conveyor belt system that has pervasively characterized factory games. Fascinatingly, these drones would work based on defined behaviors and automatic decision trees, catering to the fluctuating demands of automated empires.
Referred to as "an automation game without belts" by its developers, Desynced promises a melange of the best elements from base building, factory management, and real-time strategy genres, making it the very first of its kind. Whether a solo player or in a group, players can experience mining operations, logistics network expansion, and new component research for bots and buildings, all while fending off alien insects infesting the planet.
The program editor, a unique feature, allows for the creation of multifaceted work instructions and routines. This is evident in one of the game's screenshots, where a robot is tasked with battery delivery and also assigned to scout the surrounding area when the battery load is less than full. The inclusion of this feature exemplifies the nuanced gameplay that the creators have been able to achieve in this game. The game's engineering sophistication and intricate details are what sets it apart from other similar genres out today.
Whilst the RTS genre can often incite wariness due to potential catastrophic collapse and hours of repair, Desynced manages to incorporate elements of defense strategy without losing the core focus of spatial problem-solving. Challenged by the unpredictability of the game and the necessity of clear strategic thinking, players engage in this post-apocalyptic world with a newfound sense of urgency.
In conclusion, Desynced offers a new exciting vision for the RTS genre. With its release on August 15th, 2023, expect a game that throws you into a planet filled with alien bug infestations, giving you the task to survive, research, build, and defend your outpost. The game provides a remarkable blend of managing resources while battling unpredictable threats. While maintaining the elements that make factory games appealing, Desynced has stepped away from the beaten path and offers a new exciting way to approach this genre.
