    This is a 2d space RTS, which boasts a heavy duty AI, and 8 player co-op! It feels odd, slightly, but it supports the tactical level zoom of SupCom. The tutorial levels are quite easy to breeze through, but the last tutorial is a small 10 planet scenario, and it looks like its about 3 hours to complete. I'm about half way through, and the AI is giving me a good slapping at the moment. When you're on the strategic campaign level, 2d icons is all you care about, so there really isn't a lot lost in terms of graphical wow. It would be nice to see these Sins of a Solar Empire style 3d graphics, but I think this game is all about the strategy and less about the oohs and aahs of space loving visuals. Its only $19.99 on Impulse, and they are claiming more free DLC to come.

    I really need to get this, looks super promising! Getting tired to Sins of a Solar Empire.

    Looks interesting, downloading the demo so I can take a look at lunch.

    Edit: What I'd really like to see is Harppon in space. That would be fantastic.

    I took a quick look and it seems a bit fidly, that being said I prefer wargames to RTS. I might give it another try, but I don't think this is what I am looking for.

    Arcen Games was nice enough to give the gaming site I work for, GamingDead.com, five copies of AI War and The Zenith Remnant expansion to giveaway for free to five of our facebook/twitter followers. It's the last day you can enter so I wanted to hit the game's forums themselves to let anyone know who was interested in getting the game for a friend, or for those who are looking to get their hands on the expansion and into the beta, etc.

    If you'd like to enter and/or get more details:

    Nice and we're grateful and everything but is EUROGamer the best place to post a US only competition? :)

    This needs a bump, seeing as AI War is one of the three games in this weekend's pack from IndieStrategyGames.com .

    It's been a while since I've played strat / tactical games but this looks like it's got legs and then some.
