To be fair, this isn't an RTS.

Right now, we use right-click for deselecting things, as it'd be pretty frustrating for others if they were forced to "always select stuff", since you can select everything on the map, especially the tiles.

That's weird. Have you tried reinstalling?

When it comes to Steam, it sounds like a problem sometimes and that you should retry.

If you haven't already, try restarting Steam by fully quitting and starting it up again. If that doesn't work, try verifying the game's files. If neither of those work, tell me, and we'll try new ideas.

We took some creative liberties. :P

But why are waiting that to happen? That's becase the Square it's too hot for them to live in. The Gaamis decieved the Polaris to terraform the world they want to conquer.

Yes, it's canon that once you win a match with Polaris, the true Gaamis invade the Square and kill all the Polaris (and any other Polytopian).

And now we learn that Polaris people don't even do all of that on their own will:

Yeah, pretty much!

We can confirm, though, that 99.9% of the Polaris population is happy or otherwise content with the rule of their "benevolent" saviors.

Yes, the occasional dissident is bound to happen, but ultimately, the Polaris as a whole believe that the Gaami have their best interests in mind (even if it's all a lie).

A happy relationship exists between the Polaris and the Gaami - the Gaami rule and the Polaris enact their will to freeze over the Square. But, of course, there's bound to be some of those who aren't always the happiest with this arrangement, such as this Polaran dissident trying to flee...

Hello Polytopians,
