PID Games has just announced that it will be launching Sigma Theory, its upcoming strategy game for the Android and iOS platforms. The game is being touted as a one where players will engage in espionage and subterfuge in a futuristic science fiction universe. You will take on the role of the head of division for Sigma in your country, and tasked with using a certain ‘Sigma Theory’ to achieve your objectives.
Description for Sigma Theory as follows via its store page:
Sigma Theory is a Turn-based Strategy game in a futuristic global cold war from the award-winning creators of Out There. Recruit a squad of special agents and run your intel agency to secure the control of the singularity.
In the near future, a paradigm-shifting scientific discovery looms over the world, promising radical new technologies. The world’s superpowers realize they could have the power to destroy the global financial system, wipe out entire countries or even gain access to immortality.
However, this discovery — called “The Sigma Theory” — can only be harnessed by a handful of scientists. You are placed at the head of your country’s Sigma division. Your objective is to ensure that it is your nation that reaps the benefits of Sigma Theory before anyone else.
To achieve this you will have powerful resources at your disposal: a cadre of the world’s most elite covert agents, advanced tactical drones and, of course, your own skills in diplomacy and subterfuge.
It’s a cold war out there, one in which mankind must face up to its future.
