They Are Billions Released

Steam News announces the release of They Are Billions on Steam, saying the Windows post-apocalyptic steampunk strategy game carries a 10% launch discount. This is set on a distant planet, reminding us that our universe contains billions and billions of stars. The game was previously in Early Access, and this trailer shows off the new campaign that's part of its official launch. Here's the pitch:
They Are Billions is a strategy game in a distant future about building and managing human colonies after a zombie apocalypse destroyed almost all of human kind. Now there are only a few thousand humans left alive that must struggle to survive under the threat of the infection. Billions of infected roam around the world in massive swarms seeking the last living human colonies.

Lead the campaign under the orders of Quintus Crane, ruler of the New Empire, and reconquer the lands devastated by the infected.

  • 48 missions with more than 60 hours of gameplay.
  • Build fortified colonies to survive in infected territories
  • Destroy the swarms of infected with the Imperial Army.
  • Make your colonies evolve with more than 90 available technologies.
  • Explore the ancient human fortresses with your Hero.
  • Discover the story behind the apocalypse... how did the pandemic start?

Also, 12,231 people have rated the game on Steam.
The majority are labelled EARLY ACCESS REVIEW.
Have to wait and see what leaving the EA program does for sales and reviews.

70% so far based on launch reviews.

Sounds like the campaign is just too hard. Hopefully that gets tweaked.

I lost my first mission! Didn't set up a ranger patrol and hundreds died/got zombified! Awesome! Feels about the same as survival so far, but with an easier, smoother onramp (Less options to start with, shorter/smaller maps initially) and like survival, you have control over the difficulty. Just gotta swallow your manly pride and knock that baby down to 50/25% difficulty until you become one of those 800% survival god nerds that complain about it being too easy! God knows it took me a long time to graduate from zombie food minimal difficulty embarrassment in Survival, and even then I wouldn't brag about it. I love RTS but I was never good at it.
