Thanks for checking out the Remote Commander Beta! Please comment with any feedback you may have!


Intro

You are the new General of "Initiative 7B". You just docked on one of 10 Command Ships in the massive fleet that orbits in the Zertang Galaxy. Your army of robots and the three captains you've never met are ready for your command. An AI assistant named Ina is set up to teach you the control software so don't be afraid to jump in.

Remote Commander is a fast paced Real Time Strategy game that focuses on quick decision making, unit placement, and time management. Take enemy towers to increase your unit production and hold off the enemy waves until you are able make an attack of your own and take the sector's enemy portal. As you take over one sector after another down each of the 4 paths you will have to manage your 3 captains, Cortes, Hale, and Kasumi to defend the three fronts that you aren't able to attend to at the moment. If you are feeling secure in your other fronts or you just need some extra help with a sector you can also just have any of your captains join you in the fight with their powerful and unique mechs.


Note:

Remote Commander is still in Beta and has limited story content available. Coming soon will be extensive dialogue options and interactions with dozens of characters. (Story updates will be rare but include lots of content to increase enjoyment for beta players)
