Tindalos Interactive's Etherium is a throwback to the classic era of real-time strategy games such as Command & Conquer. The game will feature three playable empires, fighting each other to control the game's precious resource, also called etherium. As to be expected, each empire will have its individual characteristics, strengths, weaknesses, technologies, and special skills, such as climate control, espionage and precognition. Sounds like a classic RTS, and now you can see if the game lives up to the hype: We're giving away keys to Etherium's beta.
It seems there are usually three sides to any good story. In the upcoming RTS Etherium, a futuristic battle for control of a hard-to-find resource involves Humans, Vectides, and Intari. And in a new trailer from developer Tindalos Interactive, we get a glimpse for the first time at the kind of unit technology each faction will have on hand during their resource war.
Etherium is the name of a new real-time strategy game from Tindalos Interactive, the French developer responsible for Stellar Impact. It's also the name of the precious resource that fuels its science fiction premise. Stupid names for important resources is an important facet of all great franchises. Command & Conquer has Tiberium, which is thankfully less obvious than Avatar’s Unobtainium, which, unfortunately, is a term engineers actually use. So based on that alone, Etherium at least seems to be checking all the RTS boxes.
