Sci-Fi Indie RTS Tryst Now in Closed Beta


Set in the distant future during an age of war between humans and a mechanical alien race known as the Zali, Tryst is an indie real-time strategy game developed by BlueGiant Interactive to feature intense 8-player team and free-for-all battles (with stat tracking and clans) and a full single player campaign. Expect the usual RTS staples like resource management and base building, along with unique touches like reactive environmental hazards and the Augmentation Research Mechanism. A.R.M. is a mechanic that will afford players the power to equip and customize their units with specialized loadouts.
