In the game, you take on the role of a Russet Potato. For generations, your cultivar faction has been enslaved by the other "higher" cultivars. Your fellow potatoes have been regularly sacrificed to the potato gods.
Now, you’ve freed yourself from the grasps of potato slavery. You, a new leader of the downtrodden Russet potato cultivar, finally have a country of your own. It is your turn to strike back at your oppressors and take control of the potato world.
To sustain the power of your empire, you’ll have to keep up with the rest of the potato factions. They expand quickly and relentlessly and, in order to survive, you will have to construct buildings to produce even more potatoes, and in that way, you will get more troops.
You will also have to keep up with the times and research over 100 different technologies. You can research technologies anywhere from remarkably hard rocks, to potato guns, to nuclear bombs.
In addition, there are hundreds of different events in DicTater so there’s something new happening in every play-through.
Also, you’ll have to be careful with how you approach your empire. If you anger too many potatoes, they’ll get really salty. Happiness and saltiness factors may result in rebellions and other detrimental effects on your empire.
DicTater will have no pay-to-win microtransactions and will instead get revenue from expansions. You will receive a complete game with just a download, but if you want to get more gameplay you can choose to pay for it.
The demo is free for Android and will come out soon for iOS. To join the demo via Google Play, you’ll have to join the google group.
In addition, there is a Kickstarter coming up on November 27. You can help support the development of the game either with suggestions or by becoming a backer. You can go to its Kickstarter here.
Potato wars, being a potato leader and having your potato empire sure sounds like a lot of fun!
