Fractured State refines the RTS genre into fast-paced strategic urban combat where the machine driven imperialistic faction of the Laperian Imperial Army battle to remain in control against the Children of the Ancients, worshipers and masters of an ancient power. Choose a side then vie for control of each territory where taking over new buildings gives tactical advantage, provides the ability to recruit more specialized units and army wide bonuses, as well as impart overall dominance of the area.

Doing away with overly complex micromanagement and mass resource gathering, Fractured State focuses on battle strategies in an urban environment. The only real resources you must manage are your troops, building occupation and time. Each specialized unit requires a specific amount of time to prepare to enter the fray and each building you take control of determines map population, recruitment options and territorial control.

Created by modders for modders, Fractured State is being built from the ground up to embrace the modding community by focusing on mod-friendly design options throughout development.

In a land engulfed in a brutal civil war split between technical advancement and ancient ways, magic and machines, oppression and rebellion – which side will you choose in this fractured state?
