They Are Billions for PC is a steampunk real-time strategy game developed by Numantian Games, creators of Lords of Xulmia: A Story of Gods and Humans.
The game takes place on an alien planet that was colonized by the mankind a long time ago. This civilization is now on the brink of extinction due to a zombie epidemic. A couple of thousands of survivors has to find a way to survive in a world infested by billions of zombies.
Developers combined typical science fiction and horror elements with steampunk influences. Much of the game’s world technology runs on steam and its culture is similar to that of the Victorian era Europe.
They Are Billions for PC is a strategy game where action takes place real-time. We can pause the game anytime we want to give orders. Gameplay is quite different from what we can see in other RTS games. We will spend most of our time on managing and upgrading our colony. We will have to gather resources, build and upgrade buildings, and create an energy network.
Hordes of zombies are a constant threat that we will face. Numantian Games created their own game engine that allows the presence of even twenty thousand units on the map, each of them having its own A.I. Thanks to that, zombies can react to sounds, sights, and will try to avenge their fallen comrades when they will find their bodies.
Only one zombie is enough to infect the entire building. Not reacting quickly enough to such situations will lead to the infestation of our entire colony. We have to build defensive structures like watch towers and walls and recruit and trained mercenaries in order to keep our survivors safe.
They Are Billions for PC offers a single player campaign with all kinds of missions and a survival mode where we end up on a procedurally generated map and have to survive for 100 days.
