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.


watered-down storyline:

-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

I've made one of these myself before but I gave up because the options for building and unit placement were giving me so many slides I couldn't keep track of it. But good luck on this, Tracking :)
