My personal video game project: ReCompile

If anyone is interested in Real Time Strategy games, a friend and I are making our own called ReCompile.

Recompile is a RTS for the PC that hearkens back to the golden age of the genre. As the player, you take the place of a spaceship AI that has crash-landed on a hostile, alien planet. In order to escape, you must rebuild your ship by gathering the pieces that has scattered across the planet's surface. Be careful though, because there is an entire ecosystem waiting there to wipe you out.

Some of the major gameplay features are:
 -   Battle and build across five different map types that directly influence both your droid units and your enemies, for better or for worse.
 -   Analyze and assimilate alien technology into your own units to give them new abilities and to make them more powerful.
 -   Each area is watched over by a powerful boss enemy that you must defeat in order to retrieve your vital spaceship parts. It is up to you to discover which way is the best to do so.
 -   You have the option to program your units with a vast list of different and customizable commands. Save your programs, assign one program to all your droids, or give each droid a different program. Micro managing is a thing of the past.

The game is still in really early development, but we've taken the opportunity to put it up on kickstarter here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/frostpunchgames/recompile-rts

Thanks for checking it out, and tell us what you think.
