    Evulotion : Adventures of Dyslecsia - caribou - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    This is basically a multiplayer-online-god-vs-evolution game.

    One side is controlling its evolution character and one side is god.

    If you are a character controls are ARROWS + mouse click to attack.
    If you are GOD drag & drop the mobs on the right side of the field from the toolbar at the top, you can only use 3 different mobs per round (first three, second three and third three).

    If the players defeat all the GOD mobs evolution win, otherwise god.

    Note : You'll need people to play, minimum 2 players.

    Using the source you'll need NME for haxe and Twisted & Autobahn for Python.

    Other platforms soon...

    Having trouble running this game, when I click on the link I only get a dark blue screen, and when I download and launch with Flash 10, I get a loading bar, music, and the same dark blue screen.

    I'm adding this to my check-back list, I'll come back soon to see if you have a solution to this problem and I'll play it then.

    Are you having the same issue with the server 2 link ?

    Can't get it to run either link.

    The first link is down for now, but second is working here, there's no reason it shouldn't work with you. It takes 3 seconds usually before showing a white message saying that the server is waiting for players.

    It ran fine for me first time. But, alas, I couldn't do anything but sit on the "waiting for players" screen. I therefore can't rate on gameplay, but the graphics and sound are nice.

    EDIT: I made a call on the IRC, and found a player. I played as God (and won!).
    I couldn't see any major differences in my 3 mobs. Perhaps a healthbar above each one would have been helpful?
    I think the gameplay could be great if you had enough players.
    Overall, I liked the game. An AI would have been nice so I could play on my own.

    EDIT 2: after some more IRC'ing, played a 4 player game. This is fantastic. It has a few "quirks", but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Btw, God is super OP. (haha, sounds weird now that I type it)

    The game is fun as long as god focus on making the game challenging and not trying to win at all cost.

    Tip for anyone who can't rate this because they have nobody to play against: ask in IRC :).

    This is really fun, although it's confusing that as God you can always drag all the mobs but they don't necessarily spawn.

    I didn't really understand what constituted a 'round'. As God, I never seemed to be able to spawn any but the first three mobs.

    It seems too biased in favour of God, but as pointed out to me in IRC (too late!) the point of playing as God could be to make the game challenging and fun, not to win.

    "waiting for clients..." is what I got. Eventually got into the game but nothing to do other than move and shoot my avatar.
