Enter the grid, a digital world overrun by hostile programs, and overload all of the enemy's cores to win control over the system!

CORE_OVERLOAD is a simple singleplayer RTS where you command units to gather resources, construct buildings, train combatants, and send armies to do battle in a digital world.


Build and command units, gather purple bits and yellow spikes, defend your base from enemy attacks and send out forces to clear the enemy out of the grid. The game ends when one team loses all of its cores. Destroy all of the enemy's cores while protecting your own to achieve victory!
