"This was seriously one of the best games that we have ever played. If you do not pick this up, you are missing out."9/10 - RTS Guru "Hazardous is taking a big risk with Achron... to add something so compelling to an established genre that players would be willing to take a chance on it... they have succeeded." 4/5 - AVault"Starcraft, move over. You finally have some competition in the RTS genre...This is sure to become a LAN favorite across the globe."8/10 - Gamers Daily News
How would you command your forces if you stood outside of time? Send your units forward and backward through time to the very moment when they're needed most? Double your forces by sending them back to fight side by side with their past selves? Would you execute a feint by executing an attack on their resources, and then change your original orders to target their production facilities? Or would you go deeper...
Achron is the world's first meta-time strategy game, allowing you to dynamically alter your past and future actions, send your units back and forth through time, even engineer temporal paradoxes that work to your advantage. Play through four single player campaigns, or then go online to face off against your friends in a fully dynamic temporal environment!
