January 13, 2014 | By | Add a Comment

Mutant Gangland is a fast, neat and simple turn-based-strategy game where mutants fight robots . Build units, Conquer buildings and use them to Fund your army. Battles are short but the game packs 50 quick battles and a level editor to design your own maps.

The game is being made for Linux, and will hit Steam’s early access this month,with the following features;

  • 8 maps (7 normal battles, 1 skirmish map)
  • All 8 commander profiles available (and as playable units further down the road)
  • A level editor for custom maps
  • Player vs AI/AI vs AI + local multiplayer matches (hotseat mode)
  • DRM free for all platforms (Windows/Linux/Mac and Android), distributed via itch.io – (for now, due to it’s ease of use and no cumbering clients) in a buy once get it on everything I can build for fashion.

The developers are taking the unusal step of open sourcing the game engine.

Besides this we’ve also decided to Open Source the game’s source code for non-commercial use, alongside the binaries of the game. Reason for this, besides allowing anyone to change it to their taste or tinker with it, is to allow those that bought it to play it/build it on platforms I cannot support (or build for).
