Dark Colony

Dark Colony was a real-time strategy game from 97. Compared to other Rts titles DC had easy to recognize chunky units and videos full of violence sprinkled between missions. (pretty awesome for its time)

Sometime in the future humans discover some valuable gas named Petra-7 on Mars and interstellar mining corporations start terraforming the planet with water and plants similar to Earth. Some aliens named as Taar get upset and decide to destroy human presence on Mars and claim it as their own.

The way units were big and identical reminded me of a more mature, sci-fi version of Warcraft 2 (which was released around 95)
