Ærena: Clash of Champions is described as answering the question “What if someone gave Tesla a rocket launcher and pit him against cybernetic mutants?”

The “dieselpunk” game posits an alternate timeline triggered by the existence of Æther, a source of power discovered in 1913 which fuelled the creation of “unprecedented technologies, militant regimes and decades of devastating warfare”.

The turn-based, tactical title is coming to Android, iOS, Mac and PC and mobile, and is already available for PC through Steam Early Access – in alpha form. When fully launched, it will have cross-play between all versions.

If you buy in now, you’ll be rewarded with content which will otherwise be sold separately as DLC post-launch.
