'SunAge' - v1.08 Patch Available NOW

by Rainier on Feb. 19, 2008 @ 8:14 a.m. PST

SunAge is a futuristic RTS where the player can experience 3 different races with each there arsenal of units, buildings and upgrades, taking place across 2 different worlds. In the distant future, earth is dying and mankind retreats into sealed cities. Then a new cult called RaakZun arises, spreading chaos. Our hero battles to protect his Federation and aims to strike at the heart of the Raak Zun’s creed. This opens a gateway to an alien planet and frees up the way for lethal Sentinel drones, who will crush any life-forms that get in their way.
