Description

A human space carrier reaches the "Outer Rim" to explore new worlds, obtain powerful technology and find tracks of an ancient alien race...

RIM is a 3D turn-based strategy game in the tradition of Battle Isle. It offers a simple and intuitive interface, six different races (humans, aliens, robots) and all in all 70 units with different weapons, special abilities and individual damage systems.

There is one campaign, with 28 long missions including scripting events and different goals.

Each turn has three phases:
  1. the moving phase (in this phase the computer moves and selects targets)
  2. the attacking phase with selecting targets and/or using special abilities
  3. the "entertainment phase" in which all attacking commands are performed and shown in a non-interactive real-time 3D movie sequence
