I know some people have been waiting for information on Colony Wars, so here is an update. The first preview beta will be released this weekend
on the web, the Ape Apps Launcher
, and on Android.
This is an early release, and contains multiplayer LAN/Internet, vs AI skirmish, and a map editor for creating maps.
LAN and internet multiplayer requires either the Android or Ape Apps Launcher version. Playing over the internet will require TCP port forwarding on your router of port 2733
If you don't have the Ape Apps Launcher, you can get it for Windows, macOS, or Linux from here:
Colony Wars is very much an early work in progress beta. The purpose of this release is to test the core engine mechanics and to receive feedback, and perhaps give me motivation to start putting more time into the project!
I expect the release to be ready on Saturday morning, maybe even Friday night if I am motivated. I will make a post in this forum with more info once the release is live.
