Far into the future, different factions fight throughout the galaxy for control of resources using armies of advanced machines...

"Metal Factions" is a game for the spring engine with four original factions: AVEN, GEAR, CLAW and SPHERE.

It should favor small to medium battles and micromanagement as economy growth is dependent on map control and units are relatively expensive.

more information is available on the spring forum:
