Download the IGF Build!Whoa! Got this one done and uploaded with less than a minute’s margin of the IGF deadline! Sadly, that’s how I habitually respond to time restrictions, folks…

Anyway, you haven’t seen any posts on here the last few days because all activity has been intensely focused on getting this done in time.

Well, with no further ado, go ahead and download this pretty version and let us know how it plays! There’s a nice intro with some fantastic music made for us by Hubnester Industries. These are the same guys who make up the band Machinae Supremacy. If you haven’t heard their stuff, I highly recommend you check it out here.

The in-game music was made for us by Mike Watts of Encore Music. Great stuff that fits the slower-paced gameplay of CC like a glove! Thanks a ton Mike – you’re the gent! 😉

Other noticeable improvements:

  • Picking up of items is a lot easier… game detects it much better.
  • Added end WIN/LOSE banners when a brain dies.
  • Ordering several guys in the same rocket works a lot better. You an even arrange what equipment each of them should get.. anything listed after a guy (and slo before the first) will be assigned to him.
  • Guys coming out of the rocket works better… no more lost limbs on those arrivals!
  • Nice setup program which will clean up after itself.
  • Did I mention the intro?
  • And the music?!

    That is amazing! I hope to download new updates in the future! With some online multiplayer and a little TLC this could be a full fledged commercial game!

    Hell I entered a game and I’m STILL rooting for ya. I love this project! Runs much better than it did in the D.I.R.T. days (for me anyway)…

    The game has realy progressed a lot these weeks!

    The controls still need some work I think.

    I think there are lot’s of possibilities for this game.

    I like the plants! There should be more vegetation and strange alien animals in this garden. 🙂

    Good luck with building creative joy!
