Element is a realtime strategy space game for people who don't have time to play realtime strategy space games.

Home no longer provides a means to survive.
A fight for resources to escape our system has begun.
The future lies beyond…

Element is a visually stunning realtime strategy space game with a focus on sharp, accessible gameplay.

Element is for lovers of beautifully crafted, original looking games. It is for people who are into space and strategy games but don’t have hours of time to invest. It’s also for gamers who enjoy launching missiles and blowing things up :)

You are escaping a decaying solar system. You must visit each planet, mine enough element, and defeat the enemy to progress to the outer planets and beyond. Generate energy, mine element, build attack and defense units, and destroy the enemy while maintaining a balance between earth, air and water.

This game offers a good challenge as well as a learning curve. Its pretty fast paced and offers challenges to anyone. Runs very smooth and looks impressive. Sound effects are great as well

Quite fun for leisure. Difficulty does increase quickly. Doesn't heat up my 2016 MBP too much on low settings.

What is it supposed to do?

I have never seen a game where nothing happens, you can't do anything, and your processor gets hot enough to fry eggs. It seems like there is a trailer, and some cool graphics, but nothing else. The web site just repeats the blurb. The support site just repeats the blurb. Garbage. Waste of $10.
