Get Your Head out of the Sand: Glyph Worlds Announces Classic RTS Game, Barkhan
June 7th, 2022 — After finding success with their historical RTS War Selection, indie developer Glyph Worlds is ready to go interplanetary with its upcoming real-time strategy game, Barkhan. Travel to a distant desert planet and take command of one of three clans embroiled in an unending conflict for control over the rare minerals scattered across the planet’s surface. Barkhan will be available for Windows and Linux via Steam and a playable demo is available now and throughout Steam Next Fest (June 13th - June 20th).
Check out the announcement trailer here:
Barkhan is inspired by the classics, paying major homage to legendary games like Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty and Dune 2000, both genre-defining titles that set the standard for other real-time strategy games for years to come. Barkhan aims to deliver an experience reminiscent of this golden era of RTS, with a modern twist. Explore a world rendered in beautiful 3D, build and expand your base, train and prepare your armies, and clash in the battlefield to conquer your enemies. But be wary, more than a few surprises lie hidden beneath the sand.
Choose wisely, each of these warring factions have unique strengths and weaknesses. In true classic RTS fashion, depending on your pick, you will need to adjust your playstyle and strategize accordingly! Should you go with the clan of Power, and rely on heavy-armored vehicles? Should you take the helm of the clan of Will, and rely on their speed and precision? Or should you guide the legions of the clan of Trickery, and rely on their high-tech solutions and stealth technology?
