Eggz

by wilbefast - 7dRTS / Mini LD 44 Entry

"Eggz" is a real-time strategy game... with eggz.

-------------------------------------------------------
CONTROLS
-------------------------------------------------------
Player 1: WASD to move, LCTRL to interact.
Player 2: ARROW to move, RCTRL to interact.
The game can also be played with XBox 360 controllers :)

-------------------------------------------------------
HOW TO EGG
-------------------------------------------------------
The interact button is tapped to place or pick up eggz, or held to open a contextual menu when you're over a mature egg. Mature eggz can hatch into either bombs, knights or fountains:
- Knights attack anything nearby,
- Fountains convert adjacent tiles,
- Bombs can be dropped on enemy units to paralyse them.

The goal is to convert 50% of the map before the other player does - bear in mind that fountains are vulnerable to knights, which are vulnerable to bombs...

-------------------------------------------------------
RATIONALE
-------------------------------------------------------
I wanted to make an RTS with minimal positive feedback which could be played on a single screen with gamepads.

I really like RTS games, but playing them competitively is always a little frustrating. You can get eliminated very quickly if you're not much good and have to wait around for the game to finish before playing again.

@Zeredek @vincepascoe oopsies! Sorry guys, when I uploaded the patch I forgot to include the DLLs. Should be good now :) The Google drive mirror is already up and running, I'll need to wait a bit for the indieDB version.
