He who controls the ore, controls the universe!
I have brought peace, freedom, justice, and security to my new Empire! Or so I tell myself. This week we get a screen shot of something really simple… just a sector of space in a universe filled with Creeper covered worlds. Well, lets just say it won’t be filled with Creeper for long… For game 3, [...]
Last week showed a screen shot…. this week we’re back to a video. This mission focuses on some new additions to the game, the operation of the Terps, and a good old fashioned ground assault… just like Grand Pappy used to command!
The Knuckle Cracker studios have operating beyond capacity the last week and a half…. Surrounded by Creeper, I thought we would barely hold out. Then the Spores came. The airborne assault nearly took us down. But in the end the KC Digits Flag continued to fly. Battered but still flying and never defeated. The battle’s casualty was [...]
Air transport… what’s not to love? If you have liked what you’ve seen in previous videos you should love this. I’ve updated the Guppy Air Transport to support all four of the fundamental resources in the game. That would be Packets / Energy and AntiCreeper / Ore. With this you can readily handle any crazy map you [...]
What would happen if something really really large hit a world? It wouldn’t be pretty, but those emitters are so tough they would remain on some of the planetary pieces that were left. And that just won’t do. Not on our watch… This week you’ll get to watch me take on a couple emitters who [...]
It’s very common that I get messages each week asking for more screen shots, more details, etc. So this week, I decided to post over 27000 screen shots all at once… Over 15 minutes of me playing the middle of a mission in an Alpha build. This video was something I did for private review, [...]
Followers of the CW series are more than a little familiar with Spores and Phantoms. These were flying/ethereal enemies that required specialized defenses. In the case of CW1, you build SAM sites. In CW2 you build Phantom Coils. In Game 3, Particle Beams are your salvation. Spores in Game 3 also originate on the map [...]
One of the most popular aspects of CW2 was the AntiCreeper. So it naturally makes a strong return in Game 3. But, there needs to be some interesting way to make it… hence what I call the ‘AC Economy’. In Game 3 you need to build Ore Mines on Ore Deposits. Similar to CW2…. but, [...]
This week’s (OK, I’m a day late… I’ve been working hard…) screen shot comes in the early stages of fight. I’m zoomed in and playing at 1080 vertical resolution. While this particular mission (thanks MadMag!) is very fun, the most interesting addition this week is something you can’t see… it’s what happened before I took [...]
