Well, 2 LD’s ago (You are the villain) I decided to make a RTS. I was going “FML” within hours of starting, but some nice people on irc convinced me to stay in the LD (Thanks guys!). I ended up creating a piece of crap and swearing that I wouldn’t make a new type of game (FPS, RTS, etc.) in a LD again. But I’m just about ready to break that again. Here’s the idea:
A platformer RTS.
It would have block-by-block movement, and each unit would have a cooldown time before you could move it again. I think that so long as the battlefield is small, micromanaging your units could actually be fun.
Or is that just a stupid idea?
