Your Enemy?!

A self-learning swarm of A.I. drones that attacks your base in waves.

In the beginning the AI has no knowledge of its surrounding and how to move or fight. The only thing it knows is its target – your light.

The swarm attacks in waves and integrates new knowledge with every respawn. Be warned: It learns very quickly. Once it has located your base and energy source it will attack mercilessly.

Your Mission?!

Secure your light source and reach the A.I. base to reconnect it.

Descend to one of the infected planets and use the time you have to build a stable light grid to protect your energy source and prepare yourself for battle.

Fight the A.I. swarm in real-time while it continuously evolves and adapts to the terrain and your behavior. If you hesitate too long the AI becomes invincible!

Your ultimate objective is to reach the enemy’s base and reestablish its connection to the light. Much easier said than done...
