Real-time strategy games are known for being complex and epic in scale, which is why Auralux fascinates me so much. It takes the concept of an RTS game and boils it down into the tiniest fragments possible. It’s so simple that you can play using no more than a single finger. Ever heard of Galcon Fusion? Auralux is like that, only less frantic. You control a Sun, which is your base of operations. Every second, this Sun produces a unit of light, energy, or whatever it is. You can send these units to other stars to claim them for yourself and these stars will start producing units for you as well. Units will collide with enemy units, destroying both in the process, and units can destroy enemy Suns and stars, too. Timing, anticipation, and prediction are crucial for success in Auralux. This is the simplest RTS game you’ll ever play, but don’t be fooled into thinking that it’ll be easy or boring, because it’s neither.

Auralux is an abstract, essentialized, and simplified real-time strategy game.
You command only one type of unit and have only one type of order to give those units. You and your opponents start the game with precisely equal resources. Quick reflexes will get you nowhere. The only path to victory is through clever strategy.
Auralux features a slow, floating feel and vibrant minimalistic graphics. The entire game pulses to the rhythm of ambient music, and the player's actions evoke sounds that smoothly coalesce into melody.
This game is designed to provide a relaxing, cerebral experience. Every choice matters, and only the best strategies will succeed.
