The Last Federation, the latest strategy title from indie developer Arcen Games, launches today on Steam, GOG, Humble Store, GamersGate, Green Man Gaming, and ArcenGames.com, and will be discounted by 25% for the first week following its release, bringing the price down to $14.99 (from $19.99).
Arcen Games is best known for another, similar strategy title, AI War: Fleet Command, as well as Bionic Dues and A Valley Without Wind. In The Last Federation, players engage in turn-based battles on the grand scale of a solar system with up to five factions fighting at once.
The Last Federation promises to remain challenging to veterans of the grand strategy genre, whilst still being accessible for players new to the genre. In order to appease both kinds of players, you have the option to save and reload at any time, or play in “ironman mode”. Considering this genre is known for its complexity, its nice to see some accommodation for newer players.
