I’ve been playing the open beta of Spectromancer for months - even pre-release, it was a game that managed to find its way into any spare moments at the keyboard. A game of wizardly battling (yes!), it combines tactical unit placement with judicious use of clever, wildly varied powers. The strategic depth on display here is something I really urge you to investigate, and I’m honored to have it on Greenhouse. It features a full single-player campaign in addition to hotseat, LAN, and online play.
If you have something you really need to get done today, downloading the demo would be an incredibly bad move.
