Civil Warriors

by GaTechGrad - Mini LD 61 Entry

A Civil War themed turn based strategy game. The rules are based loosely on a famous world-conquest board game.

I primarily focused on the game engine instead of graphics. I wrote a text based Ruby console version first (posted) which was the blueprint of the game. It was very helpful, as it defined all of the rules of the game, data structures, and game states.

I have been keeping a developer's log (posted) which documents the entire process that I went through to create this game. I decided to not use Playmaker, since I wanted anyone to be able to recreate the same game by following my developer log. However, I did realize how much more time consuming it can be without using Playmaker.

I'm hoping to go back at some point and update the graphics and add audio to make it a better looking game. I also need to add opponent AI.

Update August 1, 2015 - Updated the graphics and textures. Slightly modified the models to give a small ridge around the edges of the territories.

Really nice game! I included it in part 1 of my MiniLD #61 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look :)
