Greed Corp is a turn-based strategy game for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC. It will be the first in a series of different types of games situated in a fictional world inspired by the industrial revolutions and their destructive effects on the environment. The game will focus on strategic battles on a map featuring a land collapsing mechanic.
•Players will choose one of four factions in matches of around 20 minutes
Gain credits by harvesting layers of land. Harvesters will slowly destroy the tiles in the area around them. Harvest too much and the playing field will start to crumble, making depleted tiles collapse. Tactics involve understanding the offensive value of a harvester as well, using it as a weapon and strategically causing destruction to both opponent and playing field.
Credits are spent to build an army at buildable armories which are used to rid the land of enemy forces and buildings.
Find the delicate balance between harvesting the land for resources and preserving it to stay alive. Will you defend your territory or sacrifice it to keep it out of enemy hands? Manage the finite available resources to build your army and use the collapsing terrain to your advantage. Destroy your enemies, or destroy the very land they stand on, before they do it to you.
