PC Gamer preview
Grey Goo, a sci-fi RTS from Petroglyph Games, a direct descendant of Westwood Studios.
Be aware, they are not an Indie. They have a publisher.
Grey Goo, unlike Star Craft will prioritize macro decisions over micro management.
It's a base-building, resource-harvesting RTS that throws most unit micro-management aside and puts the focuses on the big-picture “macro” decisions that once powered games like Command and Conquer and Total Annihilation.
Grey Goo controls will be strwamlined and all based off of the QWERTY row on your keyboard, like a MOBA.
Grey Goo will use a simple tiered menu system. So you have a choice of producing buildings, light units, heavies, air—and once you key into that next submenu, you get a new set of options using the same keys. So basically, you will never have to remember keys shortcuts like in old RTS. Those will be always qwerty.
No additional info is available yet, except a trailer and a few screenshots.
BUT classic RTS is returining. FUCK YEH. A new PC golden age is here, boys.
