Grand Strategy: Space War - "Mercenaries" -- Unity

Posted by Orymus3, 04 September 2014 · 202 views


For the longest time, I was hesitant to use Unity. Truth is, I'm not a big fan of editors: I generally feel I don't have sufficient control over what I'm trying to achieve, and this can be quite frustrating.
That being said, not meeting desired velocity can be equally (if not more) frustrating however, and after several months of Dart developm...

"Let there be Game!"
I was hoping to get this done much earlier, but a lot got in the way...

(Don't worry, I'm still working on that!)

Grand Strategy: Space War - Video Log # 1! The week that was!

Finally managed to release our first Video Log for the project.

Video Log # 1

A blend of pixel-art and concept art with Super Metroid-like music in a modern browser interface?
What kind of 4X game is THAT?!

We've been hard...
