We are proud to present the latest incarnation of AUTOMAKHAN, RTS // devolved. Featuring performance improvements, simplified gameplay, fine-tuned multiplayer pacing, immersive controls, refined hero builds, and more. Sara has created a quickstart video that outlines the updated ruleset, available here:

Quickstart gameplay intro: Meteorologist

The new ruleset is so satisfying that we have decided to name this build our first official beta version. Further updates will not significantly change the game mechanics. However, we will continue to provide performance improvements, tuning and balance, and additional content with the help of trusted collaborators. Be on the lookout for the as-of-yet-untitled campaign 1, a co-op multiplayer story that colors the world of AUTOMAKHAN.
