Despotism 3k
Xbox One

Humanity is enslaved by an artificial intelligence! And that's wonderful, because you are on the right side of things. Manipulate those pitiful humans to produce the energy needed for the machines. You'll have to make sure they don't die of hunger or fatigue, but it can even be fun. And by the way, you may recycle the spares in a bioreactor at any moment!

Anyway, this is a resource manager with roguelike elements, as kids say these days. The project got started at Ludum Dare 39 and is now being turned into the game of our dreams.Key features

  • Resource manager on steroids. Your decisions have to be fast, precise and merciless!
