KKnD 1 and 2 are real-time strategy games released in 1997 and 1998 respectively, that are today owned by Atari. They were known for their tongue-in-cheek humor and the difficulty of their campaigns. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, the first game let the player choose between two factions: The Survivors (Humans) and the Evolved (Mutants). In KKnD 2 another faction, the Series 9 (Robots) are also playable.

The Survivors are your classic humans with riflemen and tanks, spiced up with hovercrafts.

The Evolved have everything mutants need: Giant scorpions, armed mastodons and wasp bombers.

Lastly, the Series 9 boasts all sorts of killing machines, such as the Grim Reaper, the Radiator and the harmless seeming Michaelangelo.

Back in 2011 our team began to form, when we decided to dissect both KKnD games in all their available releases. From these reverse-engineering efforts we came to the idea of reimplementing the games, so they could be played on different platforms and with less compatibility issues on modern systems. After a few first prototypes we decided to move our project over to an existing engine and finally settled for OpenRA.

Our KKnD 1&2 remake is planned to feature:

  • Multiplatform support (Windows, Linux, OSX),
  • Multilanguage support,
  • Online play (server browser, ingame chat),
  • Easy modding,
  • Cut and custom content,
  • An active community,
  • Future updates and balancing,
  • Support for any resolution,
  • Open source.

This is the second RTS game in OpenRA that is not based on Command & Conquer series since Dune 2000. Anyways, we no need to be C&C in OpenRA.

Also it is cool if there is hero units in both KKnD 1 and 2 remakes such as the following below:

KKnD 1

Survivors - Barry Kowalski (Uses General sprite)
Evolved - Daekin-Ho (Uses Chieftain sprite)

KKnD 2

Since there is no unique mission units in the game. We can use Level 5 Tech infantry units instead.

Survivors - Laser Commando
Evolved - Spirit Archer
Series 9 - Sterilizer
