Hey, I'm team lead on Geistkrieg (I also do much of the game design, and all of the textures). While this is the first project for Starcraft 2 we'll release, we've been modding RTS for a long long time for the 'Command and Conquer' series. Our last major project was 'Mideast Crisis 2' for CNC3 (link below);


So far I have to say that Starcraft 2's engine, while not perfect, and lacking a lot of documentation, has allowed us to do things we never could've for CNC games. Geistkrieg has been a lot of work (both art and code) but it's finally coming together.

The plan is to release a rough, public, Allies-only alpha in the near future. By rough we mean; probably no new infantry (animations are killing us atm), particlefx or sound (not going to tackle that yet). The goal is to slowly add on and iterate from there.

Hey guys, was looking trough again and really loved what you're doing. Will try to spread the word around, perhaps post on the old MEC 2 page.

Anyway, voted and good luck working on it. Seeing something before the end of the year would be an added bonus.

Good luck.

What we're doing just takes a lot of time. :b If you want your mind blown go check out videos of Carbot (turns SC2 into 2d cartoons) or Starcraft Universe (turns it into an mmo-like).
