 State of War - Preamble

 Author  : Jin-Ning Tioh

As you all know, Dune was the inventor of the strategy genre. Since then, many strategy hits have been made, among them the Command & Conquer series and any number of others. Unfortunately, there have been many games which have been rated as average, and even more as failures. State of War happens to fall in the average category, the type which you would pull out of your shelf if you happen to have a slow Sunday. Let's take a look at the background of the game, shall we?

After years of conflict and strife, the leaders of the world have finally agreed to combine the world's various armed forces into a single military unit. This soon led to the declaration of the nations of Earth as the United Federation of Seven Continents (U.F.S.C.). Their first threat began when a gigantic meteorite zoomed in to the direction of Earth. The Federation responded with several nuclear warheads aimed at the asteroid. As a result, the threat was eliminated. Seeing the need for greater protection, the Federation's brightest scientists and programmers produced "OVERMIND", an intelligent global defense system. OVERMIND controlled 22 major military bases around the globe located beyond inhabited areas to act in case of a crisis. Thus, no war machine was ever controlled by man since then. Little did the federation know, an influential religious cult known as Beho-Sunns had been downloading all sorts of information on OVERMIND unknowingly from it's cult members, which included lawyers, doctors, engineers, programmers, politicians and people from all walks of life. It was then the cult tried to hack into OVERMIND. They failed due to the firewalls set in place to protect OVERMIND. However, OVERMIND was badly damaged in the virtual assault and was temporarily pronounced offline. Beho-Sunns on the other hand, wasted no time in taking over the now defenseless military bases, turning them to their own uses. That's where you come in. You have the responsibility of commanding the remaining bases to launch a counter-attack on the cult. That is why the Federation has declared... a State of War.
