Hostile Worlds is a free squad based real-time tactics multiplayer game prototype. Two to eight players, divided into two teams, battle each other on a desolate alien world. Each team's goal is to collect a certain amount of alien artifacts while constantly being under attack by the opposing team and AI controlled aliens. Hostile Worlds' core experience consists of choosing your own tactic and play style by constantly customizing your squad during the game: Several unit types are available and each comes with a unique set of characteristic abilities which can be unlocked by leveling up. Each squad's backbone is the commander who provides crucial abilities like healing and cloaking. Features: - customizable squad members with characteristic special abilities - "Chess king" commander: weak on offense but essential for victory - new game mode: battle for artifacts - Hostile Terrain - 2 to 8 players via Lan or Internet - unique graphics, powered by Unreal Engine 3

Hello friends!
We have great news for you!

Hostile Worlds is now Open Source

Nick uploaded and checked our SVN for you including assets, documents and of course all the code:
Please read the readme.txt because you may use the assets only for HW related projects.

If you use the code for your own projects show it to us. We are interested in seeing what you do with it. If you make a new version of the HW prototype for example with the latest UDK don't hesitate and add it to our download section!

Btw, I heard the hardware cursor works now with the january udk.

Masterful New Concepts

For my Master Thesis about Concept Design for Hostile Worlds I created new units and Environments.
If you are interested in creating content be prepared for new artworks which I will upload during the next days here on IndieDB. Here is a preview for you guys:

Jungle Mood

Hunter and Commander

I will propably upload my thesis too but be warned it's in german.
You can look at all my works and hire me for 2d art and level design and other jobs too if you like. Here is my prtfolio: Behance.net

Hostile Worlds is beyond 10.000 downloads

Actually this is not that new but it's still great. If we count all the downloads on all servers than we have more than 10.000 downloads. Nick is in contact with Epic Games and maybe Hostile Worlds will become an official Showcase. It is allready part of the official UDK documentation. Udn.epicgames.com
(they just took an image and posted their own code ;-P).
So again, become a part of it and keep HW alive in any way you can imagine.
