I want to show to everybody what I was coding on my spare time (rainy days that I wasn't riding) on my summer vacations on the far far south of America.
I started a sort-of-RTS game, where you control a small squad of soldiers against
bad dudes... there is a lot to do yet, but at least you can almost play.
I inspired on games like Space Hulk, Crusader, Syndicate, Cannon Fodder, Warcraft, Rambo III, and others, so is a personal mix of what I liked from those games.
So well, this first demo is mainly to get opinions from alpha testers (you!) and go in the right direction with the project.
Here are some screenshoots
The file has the full source code (you have to compile it yourself, I tested it with DJGPP, Mingwin and GCC under Linux, just type 'make' on the project dir and should work fine)

The instructions to play the demo.
In short: (PLEASE READ)
Select with left click, then open menu with right click.
To drag select: hold ctrl + left click
To multi select : hold shift + left click
In this demo only : ENTER will shoot some LAME shoots with the last selected troop, K will kill it, and F1 will generate a new random army
Note that there is a lot that is not finished, for example, I still don't finish the weapons, and the map system is on design phase, but you can command your troops around, and the computer has a test AI that moves the enemies around
In loving memory of my father.

Advice on the game genre? Thanks
