This game started in May, I have just coded the M16 example mod for KAG and asked Geti to draw the M16. I think when drawing it he started itching for painting more pixel rifles. He said something along the lines of “let’s do a Soldat remastered in the KAG engine”. I said “F*** that, I’m not a 60 year old rock musician to do remastered versions”. But then a thought came to me “why not do Soldat:Trench Wars”?
‘Trench Wars’ was a Soldat mod I used to play years ago. It had realistic damage, no jet packs and a wide horizontal maps where you could play “tug of war” between 2 teams. It was enjoyable and it was something that would be easy to do (but even better) with KAG’s modding functionality.
We’re craving for some good multiplayer run & gun game. Simple cooperative/team mechanics, lots of explosions and pixel gore mixed with some tongue-in-cheek features. That’s ‘Trench Run’ in a nut shell.
- two opposing teams
- multiplayer tug of war
- singleplayer / cooperative mode against bots
- 5 classes + civilian
- truce phase + mario secret level/bonus phase
- 8 colors!
- no bs controls (arrows + A + B – gamepad supported)
- fog of war (emphasis on hiding and listening)
More details will be posted soon with some class introductions, screens, gifs and movies. Stay tuned.
We consider this a short project. It should be done in 2-3 months. After we’re done with a beta testing phase it should be available, as a stand-alone, on our website and Steam.
