Grey Goo for PC is a science-fiction real-time strategy game developed by Petroglyph Games, a studio established by the creators of the cult Command & Conquer series, which previously created Star Wars: Empire at War and Universe at War: Earth Assault, among other titles.


The action takes place in the distant future, five hundred years after the humanity had begun colonizing other star systems. The events are set on the planet called Ecosystem Nine which is an object of struggle between three factions: humans, space refugees (Betas), and murderous nanobots known as Goo. Each side of the conflict has their own units, buildings, and technologies


The developers’ goal was to return to the style which was popular in the genre back in the 90s, and modernize it in a way that makes it enjoyable to contemporary players. It means abandoning the necessity of controlling every single unit and focusing on management on the macro-scale, especially gathering resources, building bases, and raising armies.

All of the mentioned actions are performed with the use of a simple interface that does not force the player to remember tens of keyboard hotkeys, while victory requires devising a good strategic plan instead of boasting quick reflexes during the battles.

Game modes

Grey Goo for PC offers a story campaign and a multiplayer mode based on the Steamworks system. At the same time, it is also possible to play via LAN.

Technical aspects

The game has a pretty 3D graphics and an interesting visual style which was co-created by WETA Workshop, one of the biggest studios that create special effects for movies.
