I am working to create a StarCraft inspired game with SteamWorld Dig type game-play.
Currently I am in the artwork and animation phase, although I have some pretty solid documentation for the game-play in google docs, and I plan to use Unity to compile the game, but that is going to be a long time before I start that phase.
There are 3 factions similar to StarCraft, Automatons, Engineers, and SubOrgs
I have my Automaton worker animation complete!
