They Are Billions Early Access

Early access to They Are Billions is now available on Steam, offering the latest, but probably not the last, early access zombie survival game. This is a steampunk-themed real-time strategy game that features a pause mode that takes the emphasis off your APM. Here's the game's previously released official trailer and here are the details:

This release includes the Survival Mode which offers a range of difficulty settings, four unique maps, and hours of hardcore, unforgiving entertainment.

In Survival Mode, a random world is generated with its own population of infected, geography, weather and events. To win, the colony must survive a set amount of days (80, 100, 120, or 150).

They Are Billions is all about strategy and not quick key commands. With the game’s pause feature, gamers are able to plan out their strategy, build, and give orders to their army with no progression of in-game time. As it only takes one zombie breaking through to end a colony, meticulous strategy is crucial.

But Survival Mode is only the beginning…

When They Are Billions has its official launch in 2018, a full Campaign Mode will be included, which is currently in development.

The object of the Campaign Mode is to build successful colonies that are connected to each other by a railway network. Little by little, as you reconquest the map from the Infected, the origin story of where the infection came from is revealed.
Between the two modes, gamers can expect limitless hours of challenging and rewarding gameplay.

Yes this game does look really awesome. Been watching let's plays from Marbozir and Quil18. I'll probably wait til it's out of EA. Have more than enough games to play as is.

This game still looks awesome, but I'll most likely wait until retail release before I buy. I've got enough Early Access duds clogging up my Steam list.

I've watched ChristopherOdd do some Let's Play videos for this game. It has this interesting Warcraft RTS feel to the units, though I feel like the Rangers overplay their sexuality in the selection audio.
