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!

Gameplay is there. I am sure the spawn rate for player is much faster and durability of a unit much more higher. This is good considering the development team is gonna launch it official in Multiplayer aspect. However , i am taking 1 star out since this rate is for beta judging from how BGM and sound FX is created. However this is worth the time , i could see a ranked system in play here.

The simplicity really helps teach players the more advanced concepts of RTS Games, like Reinforcements, Expansion, Base Trades and other common tactics are crucial to learn in order to not get wiped out. Excellent game.

Really easy and very fun, simple. i like the main menu music

I really liked the game its simple and fun.

I really enjoyed this game!
