Advanced Evolutionary Tactics

by Fate - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A RTS style game. Units have evolutionary attributes that they can inherit from enemies they kill. Written in c++ with opengl and sdl. Graphics done in GIMP and music written in Reason.

To run on Linux download the folder. Then open terminal, cd into the folder and use:
chmod +x install.sh
./install.sh

The game should be cross platform but haven't had time to check if it works on other platforms. You will need to use the source code for other platforms.

Requires:
SDL
SDL_mixer
openGl
Glut
libpng

I would have liked to play this without having to compile myself.

I realized there were a few spelling and grammar mistakes in the title screen (it was very last minute). And some computers seem to ignore the fps limit which breaks the game as it runs at like 2000fps and everything happens way too fast. I will hopefully fix the bug in the next couple of days.

It's a bit annoying having to compile the thing. But once done, it's fun to play!

It compiled here without problems. But running is a different story. It went fullscreen and stretches over both monitors. After i changed my monitor setup the game runs, but it runs way to fast. Maybe the 2kfps bug. On the first try the game died with like this:

cc@cc-T500:~/ld24/AdvancedEvolutionaryTactics$ ./install.sh
*** glibc detected *** ./AdvancedEvolutionaryTactics: malloc(): memory corruption (fast): 0x00007f6b504ddda0 ***

on the second try i just got:


cc@cc-T500:~/ld24/AdvancedEvolutionaryTactics$ ./install.sh
Segmentation fault

The game looked quite fun, but it was too dam fast to really see someting. After about 10 to 20 seconds of gameplay i was stuck in the homebase and all my new cratures where just instantly killed.

Love that you've done a game primarily for linux, but sadly a lot of people can't play it then :(
