Enter the world of Kweek, a multiplayer bacteria grow game. Unlike other Teenage productions,
the meaning of the word "grow" has nothing to do with drugs this time. In this game,
it's all about managing your species of bacteria, and exterminating your opponents species.
The game is based on a simple "Game of Life" engine. Two players (maybe even more?)
enter the arena with one colony of bacteria, and by placing food around the colony,
it will grow. The more you grow, the more food you can give the bacteria, the closer
you get to your opponents species :).
Obviously, bacteria of different species will fight eachother. This is done using
several rules: for instance, if a colony is surrounded by others, it will be eaten.
There will be several cool ways to nag your opponent. Burn your enemy, poison
the bastard, destroy all his food, and more!
The object of the game will either be extermination of your opponent's species,
or Capture The Flag (did I mention Kweek is to be pronounced "Quake"?), and
there might aswell be support for gameplay add-ons, too.
Some of the features of this STE-only game (Falcompatible(TM)) will be:
Skill is very important in this game, you can really "get good at it"
Stereo sound FX and in-game music, and the abillity to use your own MODs
Many special effects
Will defenitely run on 14MB machines this time :-)
Fact is, there is still a lot to be done. However, development is going strong at the moment, and we expect the release date to be sometime these Christmas holidays.
