Although Search and Destroy has already been officially released, V1.0 had more holes than a piece of cheese shot at by a sub-machine gun. Therefore it...
Search and Destroy is the first (as far as I am aware of anyway) PowerPoint RTS. However, many (potentially myself included) believe it doesn't really deserve to be called an RTS. Therefore this game is more of a testimony of just what PowerPoint can do in the right hands. That doesn't mean however that it won't be fun to play, it just will never become prioritized over a proper RTS.
Search and Destroy has two factions, the Global Protection Force (G.P.F.) and the Antarctic party. In game you play as the G.P.F. fighting against an Antarctic party invasion.
-world split into parties, each party controls part of world
-massive oil deposit located under Antarctica
-old Antarctic party sells Antarctica to new Antarctic party
-reports appear of mass scale munitions production from Antarctica
-some parties create attack on Antarctica
-parties destroyed, countries ruined
-rest of the world forms G.P.F. (global protection force)
-Antarctica invades Europe & America
I myself am now somewhat of an expert in PowerPoint, and this really is pushing everything to the limit. I hope that people treat this with a slight difference than they would a normal game, because it is different. When this is released, it will be a stand-alone installer, so you will not need PowerPoint actually installed to play.
A few notes:
-in game everything is controlled from a single screen per mission
-unfortunately, there will be no animations, just text pop-up windows
-most of this game is written in C basic, or macros, so it should be pretty stable
-although all the coding is done by myself, many of the 'models' where done by a friend of mine, who deserves credit too
-there will be a simple 5 mission campaign, and probably a simple skirmish
-the first releases will NOT be open source, however I may at some point un-lock it for the community
