    We literally take a look at the future of gaming with Achron, an RTS that allows you to time travel into both the past and future. In multiplayer. Find out how the game copes with paradoxes and more by reading our hands-on preview of this indie gem before it disappears from the timeline!

    If I can get at least one mate to buy this with me, I'll probably get it. It looks too intriguing to pass up!

    Can you imagine anything worse than a zerg rush on your base at the very beginning of the game? :D This game looks brilliant, definitely looking forward to it.

    Can't wait for this to come out. Great timing too, as 2010 is upgrade year for me :) Out with the old (2005 Compaq) and in with the new (probably a BT gaming Build).

    Even if I keep playing this until next year when the final release comes out, I still do not think I will understand exactly WTF I am doing. Seriously complicated game.

    This is exactly what RTS needs. RA3 made me hate RTS, it needs a savior

    certainly looks interesting. tbh though i think probably a bit complicated for my poor addled brain.

    Last I heard this guy was looking for financial backing to get the game going. Nice to hear it got picked up! Can't wait for my head to implode!

    Dammit why do all these really good games come along when I'm supposed to be saving money.. already spent most of it in Steam sales. Still, $30 is only just under £20, which is a steal if the game is as good as it looks like it will be.

    Maybe I should order it, use the game to travel to the future and see if it's any good, then I can always go back and cancel XD

    I had looked up a lot of stuff about it over the summer, and I was just starting to wonder how they've been doing.

    Are there any mathematicians out there excited about working in another dimension? :hehe:

    this is a really weird concept, and it could backfire, but its nice to see something new in RTS
