Factions is a minimalist Action-RTS on a small 3D world - Take control of the planet to win!

How to Play:

Objective: Capture all bases in the world to win


  • Be the only player near a base to capture it
  • Bases spawn pawns
  • Left click + drag over red pawns to select them. Then right click / E to send them
  • WASD / Arrow keys to move the camera
  • Space to slow time. If you want to play "hard mode" try beating the game without slowing time ;)
  • R to restart level
  • For the best view, go full-screen by clicking the blue button on the bottom right just below the game

Notes on the World Dominator medal:

  • Start from "New Game" to reset the timer
  • Time spent on menus / victory / defeat is not counted
  • Using slow time only slows the game, not the timer
  • You can see your time up to that point on the bottom-right of each victory / defeat screen

Update 1.09:

  • You can now press E to send units
  • Added a settings menu
  • (Settings menu) Added a setting for inverting the camera move direction
  • (Settings menu) Added a setting for Low Graphics mode to increase FPS on lower-end machines

Update 1.10:

  • Optimized some CPU usage

Update 1.11:

  • Added a colorblind menu to the settings screen
  • Added a colorblind option to customize the colors for each player
  • Added a colorblind option to modify the saturation of the environment
  • Added a colorblind option to display markers on top of your pawns

This prototype was originally created in a weekend! I plan on making it into a full game! You can sign up for the Alpha here!

Great execution of concept with the artstyle and simple mechanics. The controls to move the troops can be sluggish at times due to the linear drag 'n' drop, but overall the game is great.

Fun and easy to play RTS. I like it👍

Very, addicting. It feels quite fast paced. Its simplicity also makes it quite fun. Would be a good phone game.

very fun even if it simple

This was unexpectedly fun. The simple graphics, the uhhh unique BGM, the easy to understand goal.
It's a simple and great game.
