    Greetings! Finally, They Are Billions Survival Mode is available on Steam! We know lots of people have been waiting patiently to play the game, especially the backers after we ran out beta keys. We have worked as if we were being chased by billions of zombies to launch the game much earlier than originally anticipated.

    This version is now much more polished than the original. We have implemented lots of improvements suggested by the beta testers and also fixed billions of issues and bugs. This process will continue during the Early Access phase while we work on the epic Campaign Mode.


    The backing period and special editions are no longer available. Thank you so much for your support and patience. The overwhelming support for our game was so muc…

    Great work everyone!

    December 12, 2017 by KillerFRIEND

    Thank you all for your contribution. It is nice to have some help. :)

    Please help me make a list of things that have not yet been added so that people can come to this post and find something they might be able to help with.


    Has currently not enough content.

    Would like to add the differences between all of the maps as well as some general explanation of what stuff is. Example: the buildings of dome.

    this page might be changed to also include all pregame decisions (the things that change you %). If it is not a separate, pregame category should be made for that.


    If someone has the mental fortitude to add time to calculate reward stuff like the spawn rate of the buildings of doom that would also be awesome.


    For the weird stuff on this page, I would…

    Greetings!

    We would like to announce that the Early Access launch is coming soon. But first, let's talk about the beta program and the supporting campaign.


    For those that have not followed the game updates, here is a small summary. We first announced the game in July 2017. Since then, we published updates periodically revealing more info about the game. Over time, interest and popularity grew for They Are Billions. Initially, we announced Early Access would be released in Fall 2017 with only the Survival mode. Then in Spring 2018, we'd release the campaign. But after we thought about it for awhile, we thought perhaps that the Survival mode would not be enough content to justify the Early Access launch. Therefore, we decided to delay the laun…

    Finally, we have activated the supporting web for all those who wish to back the development of They Are Billions. We have prepared six special reward tiers that will be available until the game is finished.

    All the contributions will be 100% dedicated to improving the game quality, adding languages, units, zombies, buildings, expanding the game goals and modes and much more!


    http://www.numantiangames.com/support-they-are-billions/

    Each edition has the name of one of the six main units of the game: Ranger, Soldier, Sniper, Lucifer, Thanatos, and Titan. All of them include a Steam Key (available when the game is launched on Steam) to play They Are Billions and four cool 4K wallpapers.


    Apart from that, take a look at the extra rewards:

    Greetings! Today we would like to talk more about the Survival Mode as you will be able to play it very soon.


    As many of you already know, They Are Billions will have two main modes: Campaign and Survival Mode. The campaign will be an epic story with many challenges. You will have to reconquest a large territory from the infected and at the same time discover the truth behind the origin of the infection.

    The Campaign mode is the main game for They Are Billions. This mode will take several more months to be completed. On the other hand, the Survival Mode is a fun and short game (about 2-4 hours) which consists of surviving in a randomized world for a period of time. We could say that the Survival Mode is just about 25% of the game, but since …

    Greetings! Today we are going to talk about building and managing the colony. Managing the colony is one of the most important aspects of They Are Billions. What you build and where is key for the success of the colony. So let's talk about the main aspects of city-building in They Are Billions.


    When you start a game, you will have the Command Center already built. This is the main building of the colony. You can start building structures on the available free cells surrounding it. Most buildings cannot be next to other buildings as you need to have at least one cell in between. But there are special rules for different buildings. For example, colonist dwellings can be placed next to each other up to two rows. Tesla Towers, walls, traps, towe…

    First, we'd like to show off the main theme that our composer Nicolas de Ferran has created for They Are Billions. As you can see in the video, the theme is played during the main menu of the game. We have called it: "An Ocean of Doom". Hope you like it!


    Today, we will talk about one of the most important parts of the game which is defending your colony from the infection. We are sure every player will follow their own strategy, so we won't tell you what to do but instead, tell you what you can do. Most of the strategy techniques must be researched first in the workshops so you will have to think carefully on which of them you invest in. There are a lot of tactics and combinations. Experiment with all and have fun!


    Mountains, forests, cliffs…

    Greetings! First of all, we have created a small mini teaser for They Are Billions. It fits really well with the mood of the game. We hope you enjoy it. Please, share it with your friends if you like it!


    Today we will talk about a new element of the gameplay: The Villages of Doom.


    It is said that when the infection spread across the mega cities of the 22nd century, thousands of the surviving families escaped and they settled in the small villages of the country to avoid the infection. They call them Villages of the Alive. They felt safe for some time as they expected the infection would remain in the cities. After all, the infected weren't very smart beings. But when the mega cities collapsed and no human life remained, the infected did not s…

    Greetings! As you know, we are currently working on the development of the campaign of They Are Billions. As we have many (too many) interesting ideas to implement, we have a lot of work ahead of us: lots of new graphics assets, buildings, structures, environments, new features to program and much more. But don't worry, the development is progressing very well.


    In our opinion, modern strategy games seem to belong to two big groups.

    First, the ones that focus on survival, crafting, and simulation. In these games, one would play random or customized levels. Many times, they are without a specific goal so that the player can play them indefinitely. Games like Prison Architect, Civilization, Factorio... belong to this type. They Are Billions has …

    Greetings! Today we are going to speak a bit about some of your best friends in the game. These are the three units you will first meet in the game. As all of them are mercenaries, you will have to pay them well if you want them to protect your colony. Also, you will have to deal with their tormented and extreme personalities, but what would you expect? After all, the world is doomed...

    So you can understand the game icons, this is what they mean in order: Armor, Speed, Attack Range, Damage, Attack Speed (shots per second) Watch Range, Workers Used, Food Used and Gold Cost.


    Even though this sadistic killer would be in jail in times before the apocalypses, they now are one of the best mercenaries you can rent. After all, the enemy of your enemy…

    Greetings! We’d like to share with you today a little bit more about They Are Billions. We will talk about all these topics much more in detail later, but for now, we hope it can be an interesting reading.


    They Are Billions is set in the 22nd century when only a few thousand remaining humans live in the entire world. The game begins just at the turning point when the surviving humans start to rebuild civilization by developing colonies that can defend themselves from the infected threat. All technology has gone backward at this point, similar to the 19th century.

    The leader of the survivors is General Quintus Crane, which rules the resistance. A very charismatic leader, it is his will to create a new human empire and restore civilization, but al…

    Greetings!

    This is the first post of a series in which we will periodically talk about the development and reveal more about They Are Billions.

    I am sure by now you have seen the trailer and screenshots with all of the zombie hordes. However, you may not know much about the gameplay yet, which ultimately is the most important part of a video game.

    If you have played our first game Lords of Xulima, you will know that at Numantian, we love to create deep and hardcore games. We emphasize on strategy and not the player’s skills. We love to set the player in a challenging and dangerous world and allow him alone to freely explore and experiment without hand-holding, level-scaling, or any forced script programmed in to make you feel a hero. They Are B…
