Slime City

Hello TA,

We're the two guys who made Metal Drift (PC-steam) and Fluxe (iPhone/iPod). We're in development on our next project, Slime City (iPad/PC). We wanted to post some work. Mostly to keep us motivated.

Slime City is a 'castle defense'/city building game. But instead of the enemy being a row of baddies on a linear course; it's a slime, that expands in all directions. So defeating it is a completely different challenge from your average castle/tower defense game.

Your city is there to provide cash to buy weapons, to fight the slime. The more efficient your city is, the more cash you get to buy weapons.

You will be the commander of an elite slime fighting force. Here we have 3 members of your 7-8 person team.
Brighton (on the left) will introduce you to new, unlocked equipment. Maj. Fairchild will relay orders from the top and keep you apprised of changing battle conditions. Dr. Neem will reveal new information about your mysterious foe, the slime.

Here are a couple of building animation tests with 'beta' buildings and terrain.

The first weapon is finished. It's called 'The Thumper'. 'He' activates when slime is near, and smashes a clearing for you to establish a beach head.

Hey, also, here's our facebook page. Your comments on our progress are extremely helpful and motivating. We'd love to hear from you.
