Lost Technology

 

Lost Technology is set to launch on both Steam and Playism on August 9th. Lost Technology is an RTS (real-time-strategy) game where 12 factions battle to conquer each other. The game has over 100 different characters, which make up the warring factions.

Of the 12 factions, three of them will be fully playable at launch. They are Álfheim, Makan and Reinald Empire. Which one the player chooses to play as will determine how conversations and events will occur between the player’s faction and the others throughout the game. Each of the factions also has their own traits that make them unique. These include aspirations, skills and difficulty levels. This means players must leverage their faction’s strengths carefully, adding to the strategy element of the game. Here’s the launch trailer:

“War…
No one knows when or how it started.
In the lands controlled by Humans, one fights in the name of peace and justice, one battles for no reason other than to fight, one battles out of greed, to gain more land, and like this, they all faded in the fighting.
The victor edits history to put them in a favorable light, and removes anything that they deem unflattering…
As a result, humanity has lost many things to the wars.
Territory, technology, and their true history…
Now there’s not a single country that’s lasted more than 50 years…”

Lost Technology

Lost Technology is a real-time-strategy (RTS) simulation siege game in which over 100 characters, comprising a total of 12 different factions, battle to conquer each other’s territories. The faction chosen at the beginning will determine the conversations and events that occur throughout the game between the player and the other factions.

The game is scheduled to release on Steam and Playism on August 9th, featuring three of the factions available to play in full; Álfheim, Makan and Reinald Empire.

Each has their own aspirations, skills and difficulty levels that will allow you to coordinate their battles. These features differentiate each army from one another as their skills will need to be managed carefully to attain victory.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
