While certain game genres will probably never return to the mainstream at a level even comparable to their best times, such returns do occur from time to time. For example, the DORFteam team of two is preparing a nostalgic journey to the world of classic real-time strategies. For now, we still got the first fragments with graphics, but you have to admit that it promises to be quite good.
DORF Real-Time Strategic Conflict is an intimate project referring to the golden years of real-time strategy under the sign of Command & Conquer. Its creators have just posted the first announcement.
Shadows of Doubt – the never-before-seen detective simulator debuts in Early Access on Steam
In recent years, a slightly weakening trend of releasing boomer shooters – i.e. titles referring to FPS games from the old days – was born. Following this lead, one could safely describe DORF Real-Time Strategic Conflict as an RTS boomer. Specific models stylized as strategies from decades ago, one-of-a-kind animations, and heavy synth notes playing in the background – basically we have a full set. The perfect proof that you don’t always need a huge budget or the latest technology to come up with an interesting concept.

The plot of DORF Real-Time Strategic Conflict introduces us to a grim vision of a world where endless conflicts, genetic experiments and extraterrestrial anomalies have turned our planet into a huge, dug up battlefield. We can choose from three factions: the militaristic Empire, the Warband faction taken from the Mad Max series, and the NWO, strongly referring to the tradition of SF. Each faction has its own technologies or units, and of course goals – just like in the good old Command & Conquer games. As you can see from the graphics and the first trailer, the developers did not hide their inspirations. The premiere has not yet been scheduled, but you can add this item to your wishlist at Steam.
