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 humankind. 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
Survival Mode – In this mode, a random world is
generated with its own events, weather, geography, and infected population. You
must build a successful colony that must survive for a specific period of time
against the swarms of infected. It is a fast and ultra addictive game mode. We
plan to release a challenge of the week where all players must play the same
random map. The best scores will be published in a leaderboard.
Real-Time with Pause – This is a real-time
strategy game, but don’t get too nervous. You can pause the action to take the
best strategic and tactical decisions. In Pause Mode, you can place structures
to build, give orders to your army, or consult all of the game’s information.
This game is all about strategy, not player performance or the player’s skill
to memorize and quickly execute dozens of key commands. Pause the game and take
all the time you need!
Build your Colony – Build dwellings and acquire
food for the colonists. They will come to live and work for the colony. Collect
resources from the environment using various building structures. Upgrade
buildings to make them more efficient. Expand the energy distribution of the
colony by placing Tesla Towers and build mills and power plants to feed the
energy to your buildings. Build walls, gates, towers, and structures to watch
the surroundings. Don’t let the infected take over the colony!
Build an Army – What kind of people would want
to combat the infected? Only the maddest ones. Train and contract mercenaries
to protect the colony. They demand their money and food, and you will have to
listen to their awful comments, but these tormented heroes will be your best
weapon to destroy the infected. Every unit is unique and has their own skills
and personality – discover them!
Thousands of Units on Screen – Yes! They are
billions! The world is full of infected creatures… they roam, smell, and
listen. Every one of them has their own AI. Make noise and they will come –
kill some of them to access an oil deposit and hundred of them will come to
investigate. We have created our custom engine to handle hordes of thousands of
the infected, up to 20,000 units in real time.
Do you think your colony is safe? Wait for the swarms of thousands of infected
that are roaming the world. Sometimes your colony is in their path!
Prevent the Infection – If just one of the
infected breaks into a building, all the colonies and workers inside will
become infected. The infected workers will then run rabid to infect more
buildings. Infections must be eradicated from the beginning, otherwise, it will
grow exponentially becoming impossible to contain.
Beautiful 4K Graphics! – Prepare to enjoy these
ultra high definition graphics. Our artists have created tons of art pieces:
Beautiful buildings with their own animations, thousands of frames of animation
to get the smoothest movements and everything with a crazy Steampunk and
Future Game Mode – Campaign – In the campaign
mode, you have to help the surviving humans to reconquer their country. There
are dozens of missions with different goals: building colonies, tactical
missions, rescue missions… You can decide the path of progress and mission –
research new technologies, advances and upgrades to improve your colonies and
army. We are working right now on the campaign and we expect it will be
available for Winter 2018.
