RESEARCH and DESTROY is set in a continent that resembles Europe and Northern Africa, or rather, what’s left of it in the Supernatural Post-Apocalypse. The classic home of Vampires, Trolls, Werewolves and such, they’ve reclaimed their birthplace after ridding it of pesky humans. Some might consider your missions to be home invasions, but we think of them as scientific field trips.

The RADvan chauffeurs you around twelve territories, and each territory has up to three missions in different areas. For example, on the Foggy Isles you may be tasked with gathering data from a haunted henge, destroying a giant Supernatural totem in a vile village, and plugging a portal to another world above a mysterious mansion. Did I say “portal to another world?” Sorry, at the moment that’s pure speculation on my part, and would require further research.

Although humanity is long gone, their architecture still stands–in particular, creepy castles and haunted houses. (I guess Supernaturals have a fondness for those.) Some evidence of mankind’s last stand remains in the forms of feeble barricades and red explosive barrels to satisfy their hunger for destruction. These can be a […]

What’s the point of building all of those lovely, shiny, productive Universities in conquered newly-liberated territories if you meekly retreat at the first sight of an invading Supernatural? Sometimes the best form of offense is a good defense–Universities are the backbone of your efforts to reclaim earth and sometimes they need defending.

University defense missions play out just as you’d expect. One moment you’re kicking back, sipping margaritas and reading back issues of “Superconductor Monthly,” and the next minute there’s waves upon waves of Supernatural hordes trying to overwhelm the campus.

All you can do is strap up, fight and buy time while you charge up The Countermeasure. The Countermeasure is the name of the complex, dangerous last-line-of-defense system to repel Supernaturals and keep your campus grounds in friendly hands. In a time-limited Defense mission, you either have to manually charge The Countermeasure or defend your central library while The Countermeasure automatically charges.

All the usual Supernatural villains can make an appearance, depending on the strength of the invading force. As usual, time management is key, especially now that you have a deadline. You might prefer to spend time avoiding or duping an […]

There’s an adage in the post-apocalyptic Scientific community that goes a little something like this: “It’s always better on the second try”. Propelling humankind out of darkness requires that kind of never-give-up-and-constantly-redo attitude. This gives rise to the ability to upgrade gadgets, weapons, universities and their defenses.

Before you can do any upgrading you need to do the researching. Not just the “open a book and read for days” kind of research; you also need the “fill a Supernatural full of scientific lead and stuff its corpse in the Van for study” kind of research too.

Of course, research for one piece of equipment can lead to discoveries for another. Keep an eye on the Research requirements for locked equipment that piques your interest, then pursue it with all your might! And with that we mean go out and obliterate some Supernatural scum and bring back more delicious $cience, we need that.

University and University Defenses Upgrades

As you progress through the campaign, you’ll be able to upgrade your Universities, the place where you do your all-important research. As the invading Supernatural hordes grow in numbers and strength, it would be wise to upgrade the University […]
