Press Release:

    Micro Commandos are out to conquer the human race!

    Montreal, Quebec. September 26, 2002 -- Strategy First and Monte Cristo are pleased to announce that Micro Commandos has shipped to retail stores nationwide today.

    "This is a great game for those who love a challenge," says Steve Milburn, Director of Marketing for Strategy First. "This RTS will provide hours of gaming fun!"

    "A popular theme in a great RTS game", says Jérôme Gastaldi, CEO for Monte Cristo. "Cheer on your small aliens, they need you!"

    When it comes to conquering the human race, size does matter! Micro Commandos are tiny, little aliens that have big issues with the humans surrounding them. Stuck in a human basement, this mini military is trying to gain control of the Ultimate Weapon that will help them bring the entire planet to its knees. To do so, they will have to explore every corner of the house and look for essential resources (food, energy and furniture). They will also have to develop their own infrastructure and transportation from scratch. But conquering mankind is a big challenge, especially when you are 6 inches tall and another group of micro aliens and the full size family cat are standing in your way!

    Micro Commandos includes some of the following cool features;

    • Real-Time Strategy fun on a large-scale.

    • Play two distinct races: Lizardians and Roughbacks.

    • Fight against two adverse races: Masoneries and Mindscreeds.

    • A tutorial with four missions.

    • One campaign including two chapters – 12 missions.

    • Cheer on your commandos: they need you! Name them, follow them through missions and define their inventory.

    • Construct buildings that will help them survive in our world: kitchen, food reserve, dormitory, incubator... keep out House Commandos: cats, spiders, rats, mice, etc.

    • Thirteen different ambiances: pizzeria, underground, museum, cabaret, school...

    • Three different jobs: Collectors bring back resources from the world of the big, Engineers build their village from scratch and drive their homemade vehicles, and Soldiers defend the village and confront enemies.

    Infogrames will exclusively distribute Micro Commandos in North America.
