Resource Curse is a turn based multi-player strategy game about competing nations in a world with a lack of resources. Players must manage their nation and resources in order to invade other nations, influence territories and accrue economic points.
Players control their nations and manage their military, economic and diplomatic points. Players gain these points each turn based on the territories they control. During their turn players can press 0 to deploy diplomatic points. Left clicking on a territory will deploy diplomatic points into that territory. If a player has 5 more points than anyone else in that territory, they will influence it and gain the resources from that territory. When a player invests 20 points into a territory, that player controls it and no other player can influence it. A player presses 1 to deploy military units. Left clicking on a territory will deploy a unit there. Right clicking on a unit and then right clicking on an adjacent territory will move the unit to that territory. Pressing enter will end your turn and wait for all other players to finish their turn. A player wins when they have 50 economic points.
