Natural Selection - You vs the World - DigiTec - Jam Entry
Natural Selection is a side scrolling shooter where you are playing against all of the other players who have come before you. The game evolves as people develop new strategies and as more people play. Games will get longer the farther players get over time. Games will get harder the better people play.
All of the code is original, even the Math libraries originally imported were mostly rewritten to improve the overall performance and feel of the game. We also created more than 95 unique images for use in the game.
We experimented with social integration as well so you can "Like" our game on Facebook or you can "Tweet" your scores. We hope that this allows you to see how your friends are doing and maybe find them flying against you. Each ghost is tagged with your user name so when you first hit the page make sure you enter your name. Everytime someone dies to your ghost they'll know it was you!
The entire process took 5 developers a little over 100 man hours totalling 11,000 lines of code churn. A pretty intense undertaking.
