Screeps is a MMO sandbox strategy game for programmers, wherein the core mechanic is programming your units AI. With all the attributes of a real strategy game, you control your colony by merely writing JavaScripts which operate 24/7 in the single persistent world filled by other players on par with you.

Such a colony can harvest resources, build units, conquer territory, trade with another colonies. As you conquer more territory, your influence in the game world grows, as well as your abilities to expand your footprint. However, it requires a lot of effort on your part, since multiple players may aim at the same territory.

Screeps is developed for people with programming skills. Unlike some other RTS games, your units in Screeps can react to events without your participation – provided that you have programmed them properly. And, unlike other MMO, you do not have to play Screeps constantly to play well. It is quite enough just to check once in a while to see if everything goes well.

Features:

  • You play by writing JavaScript AI which controls your units 24/7 even while you're offline.
  • No shards, game realms and session match-ups: units of all players coexist in the same real-time persistent world and obey the same rules.
  • Units, base, mining resources, territory control, economy, manufacturing, transporting, logistics, trading – all the attributes of a real strategy game which you need to program!
  • The better your scripts, the better your game — irrespective of the time played. Your creeps will mine, build, defend, and conquer as you just work, sleep, or walk your dog.
  • You can start without knowing JavaScript – only basic skills are required. However, if you are a pro developer, now is the chance to put your skills to the limit!
  • Open source game server engine.
  • An option to create your own local world and play with friends.
