If you’re a fan of turn-based or grand strategy games then you’re in luck. Arcen Games has just released their latest sci-fi strategy game titled The Last Federation. Those of you familiar with Arcen Games know that you should expect nothing less than a fantastic hybrid of gameplay mechanics and genres. Personally, I’m a big fan of Arcen Games as a developer and I love the fact that each of their games have been unique and challenging, but ultimately fun. The fine folk at Arcen Games have achieved something that very few other indie developers have and that is release multiple games that span numerous genres. Games like their popular 4X sci-fi Strategy game AI War: Fleet Command, to their brain-teasing block puzzler Tidalis, or side-scrolling action / rpg and procedurally generated platformers A Valley Without Wind 1 & 2, right up to one of my favorite and most addictive Roguelikes of all-time, Bionic Dues. Arcen Games has something for everyone within their diverse library of both fun and challenging games.
I’ve put about 4 hours into The Last Federation and it’s easily one of my favorite Arcen Games titles AND ranks among one of the best grand strategies I’ve played to date! I love the amount of complexity and depth within each choice you make. The turn-based combat doesn’t take a back seat either. It starts off relatively easy but the difficulty ramps up steadily adding a lot of complexity and depth to the intuitive and relatively friendly game mechanics, making The Last Federation an engaging experience for veteran strategists and casual newcomers alike! I can’t recommend this game enough. I do highly recommend you buy the game if you’re at all a fan of strategy games, particularly if you like the sound of a grand strategy set in a sci-fi universe, that involves compelling tactical turn-based and strategic gameplay.
For a limited time you can pick up The Last Federation for 25% off it’s standard price until April 25th. It’s currently selling for $14.99 US through numbers sites such as Steam, GOG, The Humble Store, GamersGate, and the Arcen Games website! After this limited time offer The Last Federation will be going back up to $19.99, which is still well worth it considering the sheer amount of gameplay and replay value it has to offer. I suggest you hurry if you’d like to take care of the excellent discount though!
