A downloadable game for Windows

Necroncide Arena is a local multiplayer game where two players take turns controlling their respective teams of 3 “hero” mercenary characters with their own tactical abilities and stats. It uses a target selection system (similar to XCOM) but is played from the third person perspective. The objective is to eliminate the opposing team. There is also a mutant pod that spawns randomly in the map that, when destroyed, will spawn a mutant teammate, the Necron, for the team that frees it giving them a slight edge in firepower. If this event occurs the non-mutant controlling team can still try to win by eliminating the mutant and running to the exfil location (demarcated by green signal smoke) to win the game.


To play remotely, we recommend Parsec which is now owned by Unity! https://parsec.app/
