Conflicks has a great alternate history setup with anachronistic space colonialism

Did you know that Leonardo da Vinci discovered MetaMatter? Well, not in real life, but in the universe of Conflicks he did. It turns out all it takes is to separate a chicken egg's yolk from its albumen, and to heat up the yolk. When I do that, it makes mayonnaise, but when da Vinci does it, he creates a source of energy that propels the development of technology much faster than culture can keep up with.

After watching the trailer above, I totally loved the narrative setup, but noted that no gameplay is shown or even discussed in the video. At that point, I put on my journalism cap, and through a series of arduous challenges, came to learn some more information about what kind of game Conflicks is meant to be.

Developer Adam Rotondo describes it as a "top-down physics-based [real-time strategy] game set in space." Players will flick ships around the map (hence Conflicks) where they will bounce around like marbles. Conflicks is currently planned as a Windows, Mac, and Linux release.
