Description

Outlive is a real-time strategy game set in the year 2045 where human and robots battle each other for supremacy. Both races can be controlled through the player with different campaigns. The gameplay is centered around resource mining, building and equipping units, and investing into research to progress along a technology tree. There are three different campaign modes, a skirmish mode, matches over internet, and a map editor.

Outlive Windows It's also possible to form alliances with other players. This is also controlled by a tab on the right. The Orange guys want cash to become allies but it's cheaper than fighting
Outlive Windows It's not all about robot units, this is an enemy Abominable. The command centre can create ones that are loyal to the player
Outlive Windows The objective here is to harvest Uranium which brings in more cash than iron. Building the processor is no good though unless power stations are built nearby to service it
Outlive Windows Vehicles can be bought which costs more but they are ready instantly. The range of units in the market does vary. I wanted another plane and there's not one on offer
