They Are Billions is a strategy game in a distant future about building and managing human colonies after a zombie apocalypse destroyed almost all of human kind. Now there are only a few thousand humans left alive that must struggle to survive under the threat of the infection. Billions of infected roam around the world in massive swarms seeking the last living human colonies.
Game Modes
In the campaign mode, you have to help the surviving humans to reconquer their country. There are dozens of missions with different goals: building colonies, tactical missions, rescue missions… You can decide the path of progress and mission – research new technologies, advances and upgrades to improve your colonies and army.

Survival Mode
In this mode, a random world is generated with its own events, weather, geography, and infected population. You must build a successful colony that must survive for 100 days against the swarms of infected. It is a fast and ultra addictive game mode. We plan to release a challenge of the week where all players must play the same random map. The best scores will be published in a leaderboard.

Yeees we want more !!

K. Michael Prince says:

I’ll watch.

advkow says:

I’d like to see even more! Like medics? Or repair men? How does it work? Do you have to click a button to heal people and buildings, or is it you only need to do it manually if they fall below a certain level of hp?

Shin Koay says:

great series Mr Odd!!! Keep it up!

Felix Tilch says:

Maybe built towers with rangers, scattered over the camp, before walling off? (First the tower, the wall afterwards… ) Also, I think the gunfire drew in a lot more infected, than usual.

Love the aesthetic of the game and it’s tons of fun watching you play it!

Hate the sexist portrayal of the rangers as annoyed, unmotivated personnel with only sex on their mind.

The Doppleganger says:

Nice, steampunk RTS with a dash of tower defense. Hope they have a campaign mode as well.

Eric Neiman says:

More? Uhh… yes, please!

Keagan Wyatt says:

Interesting game! Not sure if I like the instant build ‘plopable’ buildings though?

Blake Reid says:

I wouldn’t mind seeing more of this.

MrSpud says:

That North West wall doesn’t look like it’s built up against the stone rocks. Like you mentioned, it would be nice to rotate the map. Looks really promising, great vid!

otheym says:

Hi Odd, would love to see more for sure!

Collux13 says:

You should totally do this as a you tube series!

Red Pilgrim says:

Is this the first RTS I’ve seen +ChristopherOdd play? 😀

Odeon Muldune says:

Hey Mr. odd you should see if you can get a copy of surviving Mars. More of this would be nice also.

Konradkurze says:

This is a pretty cool little game! I’d love to see you do more of this! Great find!

Andres Angulo says:

Build a tower right by the new fisher hut, to slowly snipe the zombies on the other side of the water, should help you clear it for future expansion and ensure the other towers that can be reached by them first arent as swarmed.

Some of my other sub youtube gamer’s are playing this game as well, I can’t get enough of it. I LOVE it! strategy, steampunk and post-apocalyptic themed. It’s my favourite burrito of yummyness. Can’t wait for this game to be completed, it’s on the top of my to buy list. I hope the dev’s do not EA this game, finish it then release it.

ane18s says:

justin schweizerhof says:

I enjoy these types of games. Please, continue.

ubbecykelkedja says:

Very nice that you actually know how to play the game. Everyone else fumble around like they’ve never played strategy before.

Thukad says:

I get the feeling you cant enjoy a game unless it tries to screw you way over.

David Klein says:

GIVE US MORE PLEASE. It reminds me of statecraft.

Handy tips
– don’t using stakes and wire, they are simply trash and a drain on your economy, an extra layer of wall is far superior as the time delay it causes the zombies while your soldiers keep focusing them down is way more efficient.
– suicidal explorer ranger at the start is somewhat effective but ultimately a waste of a unit early game. (just get that squad of 6 soldiers out there to clear,btw the advise I give you previously about send ranger early are not 100% good anymore)
– where rangers should be utilised after initial exploration and defence is mid-late game hoards, charge them out then micro them around dragging large chunks of the hoard away from your defences giving u more time and sometimes if she lasts long enough to make it back to the fully repaired and ready defence (or lead the zombie chunk to more well defended sections.)
– haven’t heard of anyone that’s beaten dark moorlands on challenging difficulty pre V 0.3.9 yet without shopping around with RNGod maps until they got a good spawn.

For walls build strategy,how about have a wall, spikes (if you really want) or troops then another wall ,or just double wall (if it a choke point then it better and less space needed to build more wall)

and those ballista tower can be upgraded to those gun tower later so try to build them,they are also super useful
Rangers are for the initial scout and protection and u should only have about 10max, Soldiers dmg and HP make them superior in almost every way and are simply the best method (except for titans haha) to defend and clear areas

at 7:58 ,well ,you are very unlucky that those village are so close to your base,it like a infected nest so there are nearly a thousand zombie in there ,but it will give a lot of resource if you clear it,but when you try to to that,try to bring big army or with more than 4 or 5 titans to do it
and each building will cost you some worker,food and energy daily (except worker)so try not to build so ineffective
for food you should try to get farm,and set it in any green tile (because you will not get much food in barren land),it worth more
and you should also try to get those lookout tower ,their vision range is very good

don’t let the resource over cap ,that will waste resource ,so try to build warehouse or market as soon as possible (use market to sell excess resource and buy one you need)
you can click on zombie to see what type of them,their stats and health,and careful,later there will be a zombie that are very fast and can climb wall

James Larson says:

Just bought the game. Great video!

Lolek Plays says:

I think you shouldnt use the soldiers at all in the beginning, the last thing you need is more zombs, and the rangers seem to be doing just fine.

Globox2004 says:

I enjoyed watching this, but all time I wanted to scream “there’s zombie there”, ”there’s iron there” , “horde could go to this first wall, right?” xd

HotTips! says:

“You must construct additional Towers”

Rasmus Olesen says:
