Welcome to Dungeon Colony!
This is my first public indie game. My goal is to create a game in which you make your own dungeon while defending it from Heroes.
Dungeon Colony is a game influenced by one of my favorite games - Dungeon Keeper - and it adds Tower Defense waves of enemies with resource collection and crafting.
The game is in alpha and many features are not complete yet. I am updating the game quite regularly, sometimes multiple times a week. Download the alpha release on the web-site at www.DungeonColony.com. The game requires Java and it auto-updates itself if a new version is available.
About the game:
Dungeon Colony is a 2D fantasy real-time strategy game in which you take control over a Dungeon Lord and his loyal Minions to explore and build a Dungeon and save your colony from the brink of extinction. Command your Minions to dig out tunnels and rooms, craft items from resources they collect, and set up traps to defend your new home against greedy heroes. The mountain harnesses powerful magic that has the potential to give you control over the lands around you. But it's up to you to uncover its secrets before you are overrun by your enemies.
I've taken a small detour from my regular game development objectives to concentrate on improving the game controls to respond to a lot of requests to make them less confusing. It's quite insane that the controls have been almost the same since development began, at least when it comes to the mouse button designations for most of the primary commands.

The old commands used to select units and object with the left mouse and command them using the right mouse. This also applied to items in an inventory: You would select left and move (in or out of inventory) using the right mouse. This wasn't very intuitive given the difference between units and objects that can be selected on the map.
The new controls are mostly completely left click: Please give it a try and let me know if there is anything you would change.
If you are already familiar with the old controls or like the controls just the way they were then you can go back and switch between them in the updated Settings menu:
On the left is a new column for "Custom Controls". Here you can switch between the left/right mouse control settings. Any future customizations will be added to this area.

@adhgarra word! u can easily get caught up in your own preferences when it's so critical to cater controls to the masses
