The year is 2003 and the world as we know it is about to end. A space-faring alien race has invaded Earth and, in less than three short months, has left human civilization in near ruin. Mankind's last hope lies in the Terran Resistance League, a small guerrilla army that still manages to hold out against the ruthless invaders. The TRL has established operations in a hidden military base in Nevada called Dreamland, which contains fantastic alien artifacts that were closely guarded government secrets before the recent invasion. It is only by tapping into the mysterious power contained in this ancient technology that the Terrans can hope to build a resistance force that might yet save the planet for humanity.
Dreamland Chronicles: Freedom Ridge was developed by Mythos Games, the same house responsible for 1994's revolutionary X-Com: UFO Defense. Like that original, classic title, Dreamland Chronicles involves multiple styles of gameplay including base development and turn-based squad combat in the field. Players must design the infrastructure to support troops and research new technologies. They must choose their missions, arm their soldiers, and direct them step-by-step through dangerous combat situations with mysterious alien invaders. Based upon such well-established concepts, the game adds factors such as enhanced AI and deformable terrain to make Dreamland a new experience with a familiar heritage. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
