Posted by Data in Cortex Command - February 4th, 2007

Major progress this week. Now multiple players (1-4) can be on the same team, cooperating against another AI or player-controlled team. You and your teammates can buy stuff and have it delivered wherever you want on the map, and you can order as many times as you want without having to wait for the deliveries to get there – they just queue up!

Four-player game

Imagine playing coop with three of your buddies: one on the mouse+keyb, one on the other side of the keyboard, and the two remaining on USB gamepads (not necessarily xbox 360 controllers)… trying to protect your collective brain from the onslaught of a now very deadly AI who can actually aim straight!

One of you guys may be on the offense, one tending to the defense control, one who is responsible for the gold collection operation, and the fourth as a floater who keeps everyone supplied with new guys and guns.

It’s all in the upcoming build, folks… There’s some tedious menu and other user interface work to be done, but almost everything else under the hood is good to go for a release sometime next week!

    Just put up the files of whatever you have done already, and we can probably deal with it for a day or two until the final work with the menus are done. I dont care if I have to hunt through config files… the new gameplay features are completed, and im sure we would all love to try it out even without a perfected menu system!
