I can’t believe it, we pulled it off. Against all expectations, we pulled it off. We failed to add the win and lose scenarios, but nonetheless we made a more or less fully fledged massively multiplayer online 2D shooter in 3 days! What is this I don’t even

I present to you: The Joining! Get the zipped build from the entry page or download the handy dandy setup which includes all the required frameworks. (XNA 4.0, .NET 4.0)

The story is that a race of monogendered aliens who join with each other to exchange genetic material have become complacent and reliant on AIs, and thus weak. Now the AIs have gone rogue and you have to once again join with your fellow alien type people to become stronger and defeat the AI overlord! (note: overlord not in game)

The game boasts procedurally generated terrain with buildings, a single central server everyone connects to, chat features, point and click movement and combat, and some pretty particles. No music, but I tried to compensate with ambient war sounds.

Now I have a dreadful headache so postmortems, time lapse and gameplay video will follow later. First LD, and we made it. I can’t even believe it. I’m so happy!
