"Your past is a lie, your future is in jeopardy, and your 35,000 light years from home"

RTS games have come a long ways from the days of Warcraft and C&C. We've seen far out cries like WarZone 2100 for example. Not saying WarZone was a bad game, it was excellent, but it just didn't catch on as much as the C&C series did. The main problem with most RTS games of this day are the fact that they are 2D. There's nothing really BAD about that, just the fact that what good is that new PIII/Athlon system with a brand new GeForce (soon) card gonna do you in a game that uses voxels? Hell, those easily run on a PII 266 with a Rage Pro. The boys at Relic have come up with a terrific idea for a totally new bread of RTS-type games: Homeworld.

That hadta hurt! Cya!

When the first set of screenshots on Homeworld were released, many people didn't take much interest in the game. Sure, some shots looks cool, but it just looked like another space simulator basically. We had no idea it would evolve into what it has become today. With a solid, well-played out story line, amazing 3D graphics, and all the action to satisfy the most hungry gamer, Homeworld is sure to hit your fancy. The story begins in Kharak, a barren wasteland orbiting a small star. Your people have long been living here... but about 100 years ago, a significant event has occured. Your people came across a tablet buried deep within the desert, among the wreckage of a half-destroyed space craft. It is then, that your people learn the startling truth: you are not from this world. 60 years ago they began construction on the giant mothership, that would eventually lead them home, home to their real, true home. It is here the journey begins...
