THE MANIPULATORS

An indie RTS under development in which you take over a town's inhabitants with alien mind-controlling parasites. Our focus is on creating an open world with meaningful AI & Stealth.

INVADE EARTH

Explore a beautiful open-world town set in prosperous late 90s California, an image of the American Dream.
Crush that dream as you bring the island under your total control.

GROW A HIVE

Begin your journey with the Queen - a powerful unit and the seed of your Hive. Expand the Hive to accomodate your increasing number of minions, create specialist structures and deploy new abilites.

EVERY HUMAN IS UNIQUE

The town's population forms an intricate social network which you can inflitrate and exploit. Humans will remember past events and react accordingly, creating a smarter AI. As the humans become more suspicious of your increasing influence, they will adapt to defend themselves, seeking safety in numbers and avoid suspcious areas.

USE STEALTH

Surprise and overpower humans to turn them into your minions, Gather information about your next targets and carefully plan ambushes. Respond with more complex schemes as the humans become suspicious.
