When I say RTS, you probably think of a game where your main objective is to destroy your enemy, usually by using all your buildings to make as much troops as you can and then spamming your target. Triberia is, while still a RTS, much different than the norm.

In Triberia, building your tribe is very important. It is here that all your decisions are made, troops are trained, wood is cut, food is grown, etc. In your tribe you can build a large variety of buildings. The buildings available to you all depend on what resources and technology you have and the landscape around you. For example, you can't make a blacksmith unless you have access to a metal and some knowledge of metal working. Or you can't farm most crops unless you have a nearby river and some seeds.
Technology is also very important in Triberia. An army with better technology can easily defeat a less advanced army, even if they are outnumbered. Technology also effects your tribe, as mentioned previously.
Animals are quite useful in Triberia. There is a large amount of animals to find in Triberia,all of which can be hunted and tamed. Taming animals enables you to make them work or even fight for you. There are mounts such as horses, camels and elephant, war animals such as dogs, wolves and bears, food producing animals such as cows, chickens and goats and simple work animals such as donkeys and yaks.
One of Triberia's most unique features is the ability to "possess" your tribesmen. This allows you to take control of any member of your tribe and play as them, which brings a completely different perspective to the game. You can take control of one of your warriors and fight as them. You can take control of hunter to bring some food into tribe. Or, if you want, you can take control of a simple farmer and plant some corn.

Single Player vs. Multiplayer: Single player and multiplayer are very different. While in single player, players can play multiple two main modes 1. Skirmish 2. Survival.

If you choose to play skirmish your objective is to simply destroy all enemies on your map of choice. Last tribe standing wins. Tribes may not create alliances with each other. These games are usually 1 – 6 hours long and allow 2-12 tribes on an average sized map. All tribes are equal at the start of the game.

Survival mode: Survival mode is capable of holding double the amount of tribes than on a skirmish map. Games last much longer and involve a lot of strategy. Before Survival mode is launched the game system randomly picks out tribe sizes and places them randomly on the map. Some tribes are huge and some are small. Your tribe starts of very small with very low resources. The large tribes will attempt to conquer your land and take your civilians as slaves. Creating alliances and trading routes is a key method to survival. The game is finished once a certain goal is achieved or when all the enemies are defeated.

Multiplayer has a very unique mode of play; Single player skirmish is available in multiplayer although the enemies are real humans. (For information on skirmish mode please check above) My favourite multiplayer gameplay mode is Tribe wars. In this game mode you must setup your own tribe by recruiting real members. The game is in 3rd person view and there is no npc tribe members. Meaning that all resources must be collected by real players. Tribe’s sizes may not exceed the limit of 10 members and no more than 8 tribes can be placed on a multiplayer map. Your tribe’s statistics will be available on the community leader boards, Yearly completions will be held for the best tribes (competing for real money). All decisions such as creating buildings are decided by vote. Equipment such as weapons and armour can be crafted using the crafting system. All players have inventories to place gathered resources and created equipment. More information about player characters will be released in the pre-alpha
