A downloadable game for Windows

SQR³ (say: square) is a graduation project, realised by a core team of three students at University Bayreuth.

It is a turn based strategy game about the final battle in a seemingly never ending war caused by the guardian of the most powerful artifact known to what’s left of the human race. Who will be the victor - and who will be trapped inside their own mind to relive their sins for eternity?

The game is played in two player hot seat mode and features 3 sistict phases, whith each one offering unique strategic potential and opportunities: First, players pick their fleet, then set up a battlefield and place their ships and finally, face off in combat in a chess-like manner. 

SQR³ is a non-commercial students project and part of the bachelor degree course 'Medienwissenschaft und Medienpraxis' at the University of Bayreuth, Germany.
