Compstomp – playing skirmish battles against the AI rather than human players – is almost a sideshow as far as ma many RTS players are concerned. However, what if a game was structured around playing against the AI, both in the actual and meta sense? Then you get AI War and its upcoming sequel AI War 2.
After playing some Darkest Dungeon, I thought “it would be great if this was a Warhammer 40K game.” Well, nobody has pitched that easiest of pitches to Games Workshop yet. However, we have a DD-in-Space(ish) game in Deep Sky Derelicts, which I saw for the first time while visiting GamesCom last year.
