Aril is a strategy game with intense fast-paced matches set in an ambient universe.
The goal of Aril is to beat your enemies by capturing enough territory. This is done by controlling a powerful, invincible unit called the Sentinel. When moving, the Sentinel will take over territory. By capturing key points in a level you can gain smaller units called Drones to defend or attack with.
With Aril we want to focus solely on the RTS combat phase. As a result Aril matches never take longer than 5 minutes, where every minute is packed with quick decision making and high-level tactical thinking. Take over the lands as one of the seven factions and outwit your opponents.
