How do I play?
The game puts you in the middle of a three way struggle for survival between aliens, humans and machines on Shoal, a mysterious old colony planet. To start, you select a CO from one of these factions, as well as a scrappy cadre of units. Then, you will manage a fixed allotment of supply to grow your base, units, and CO’s reach into an impressive military force. You can win one of two ways, either by destroying the other players’ home bases or by holding the most territory the longest (i.e. a conquest victory like Battlefield or Company of Heroes). At a high level, you want to leverage your faction to explore, expand, and endure Shoal’s trials before supply runs out.
