Real Time Tactics

Average Rating


Ratings closed


Isomer is an isometric realtime strategy game inspired by classic XCOM and other more recent sandbox style games.

It's open ended, designed to be played in a variety of ways with world exploration, survival, crafting and strategy all blended together. Build up your forces by trading resources for reinforcements with passing resupply ships and mutate your troops into specialist units from scouts to warriors. Enemy forces attack periodically in an attempt to destroy your bases and facilities. How long can you survive?

The worlds are procedurally generated, large and teeming with hostile forces, enemy bases, deep catacombs and life. On some worlds, extensive enemy facilities have sprung up and the inhabitants don't take too kindly to new arrivals attempting to poach resources from their backyard. Mined resources can be used to build structures, traps or fortifications as well as traded periodically.

Oh! Now that you mention it, I would like to receive the key for Steam, as I use it more regularly than any Desura key. Of course, the game I got it for was thr Bundle of IndieRoyale. So I wonder if I will be received the key of Steam or otherwise I am to order it before.
