Screenshots

Uprising: Join or Die Windows Soldiers planting explosive charges. This is the first method available to destroy enemy buildings. The damage being relatively low, you will quickly switch to bombardments and later K-sat attacks.
Uprising: Join or Die Windows Several bombers and their AAV escort are attacking one of my citadels, while my AAVs and turrets try to intercept them. Boosted bombers carry anti-AAV laser cannons.
Uprising: Join or Die Windows The imperial core, the final objective, has a protective energy barrier, as powerful as a K-sat attack, quickly travelling along a defined path (yellow arrows). Cross it and you die.
Uprising: Join or Die Windows The vital triangle of power. It lets you choose how much of your Wraith energy is allocated to speed, weapons and shield. A 4-state toggle key allows you to max each or have a balanced distribution.
