Man, I loved this game. I bought it when it was brand new and I wish they would finish it
Oh well...,. I guess it will never be
Anyone know of a good game that is similar?

Since you are clearly one of the faithful few.

Sadly red conquest, and the commercial failure thereof, is one of the reasons why I've been out of the community for so long. We made so little money that we just had to fold. Also, the project was enormous - we made a server that handled cellular phone latency and automatically forwarded messages on the fly if your IP address changed for goodness' sake! We pulled off a small indie house miracle, though now that sort of thing is just handled by Game Center. We couldn't continue to afford server costs, in general, so the tough decision was made to turn it off a short while ago.

If you are one of the many who want to see red conquest survive, make your opinion known in the above thread, and I will take it into consideration...

I'm back! Kind of. Part time, if you get me.

There's a poll here now and I want everyone who has played my games before to take it, if they care about getting more games from me.

This thread ought to be filled with people who care, right? ;p

I LOOOOOVVVVEEEEDDDDD Red Conquest and already voted. I've been out of the community for a while so I feel very sad I didnt get these news earlier. John, would it be TOO much work to at least try to balance the factions as they are now? Yea yea I know that multiplayer servers aren't there anymore. But at the very least, could you make the Green faction as it was when it first released? (broken but fun!) and Improve the Red faction? Cheaper units to make would do it. I don't think this in particular would be too hard to do, right? Just change some numbers...Hopefully?


I loved the game, even as it is now it's still cool. The unbalance in the factions is probably the only thing I feel is missing from this, other than that, I'm ok with you moving to something else . If you could just focus on the balance for skirmish battles and stuff, that would be the best

The challenge missions are very fun to do. Also making teams against AI is a lot of fun.

Oh my goodness, I absolutely love when these threads get resurrected from nowhere.

And the timing is interesting.

Kickstarter just came to Canada...



Perhaps it's out of scope for this thread, but I'm thinking of bringing back blue attack and maybe updating all of my apps in the process - universal, retina, ios 7 game pad, you name it I want it. But I need time/money to do it...

Screw it, I'm going to create a new thread for that topic.

*leaves this screen while editing*

BAM done
