INTRO =​

Some friends and I are big fans of KodoTag, but we always felt like it was missing something. Through various Lan parties and brainstorming, I created this game over a weekend for us to play. The weekend project turned into a few weeks... and, well... here we are. Please enjoy the alpha!.

Gameplay =

You and your friends have 1 hour to survive the night. As the 4 vampire Brothers are sending their various minions to fetch and trap your soul. You'll be forced to cooperate, learn and improve your surving skills through these harsh and unforgivable battles. Face the four brothers, build and improve your walls and towers, train the surrounding villagers, pick your play style. Good luck and have fun!

========== WIN/LOOSE ==========

1# Survive for 1 hour
2# If your runner dies all your buildings and units will be destroyed, to be revived an other runner has to reach the center (spawning point) to rescue you. (Or you may spend 2 wood to resurrect yourself)
3# If all runner dies, you loose the game.

============================

========== TECHTREE ==========

1# You make gold by either collecting it from the Goldmines and by bringing the bounty back to your camp. Or by scavenging the gold from the enemies you kill.
2# Buid barricades to protect you. Only 1 square gap is required for YOUR units to pass true, Enemies requires at least 2. Build accordingly.
3# FOOD CAP = 120 Higher levels barricades and towers cost food same for trained units,heroes and workers. Decide where you want to invest your food
4# You start with 2 WOOD. Every slain Bosses gives + 2 WOOD to all players. Only the powerfull units and buildings requires WOOD. Chose your own playstyle.
5# You can upgrade your Camp into 1 out of 3 speciality (2 woods needed). Each speciality comes with a unique builder and a unique play style. The choice is yours!

============================


========== WAVE & ENCOUNTERS ==========

1# Waves of enemies are spawn from each corners. Build accordingly.
2# There are different enemi types, including range and flying. Be ready.
3# There's 4 boss fights. at 45min, 30 min, 15 min and 5min of elapsed time, each will give 2 extra wood to all players once slain.
4# Around the pit in the middle of the map (spawning zone) there is 4 bosses, slaying them will give everyone 2 extra wood each.
5# There are hidden Magical Constructs around the map. slaying them gives every player 500 gold

Blood Moon v1 (Map)

Reviews

The UI and the terrain are both awesome! I love the environment of the map and its atmosphere. The starting time should be increased if you ask me. 2 minutes don't give that much time for new players to fully understand everything. Not to mention that...
----saving this post for more info----

This map is absolutely gorgeous.
The clever, and sometimes very subtle, placement of doodads (including buildings models turned into doodads) combined with the terrain work is simply exquisite. Every area has something special to look at.
There are far too many details that I love in this map to list them all, but to name a few:
The lighting is just amazing; you have the bright yellow glow emanating from the stained glass windows of a church, the brilliant white pouring out of an arcane sanctum, and the warm orange lights of townhouses and farmsteads.
The water; there are calm pools, sleepy streams, and rushing rivers, cascades of water tumbling down rocky hillsides, streams of water gushing out of culverts, water pouring forth from hidden springs and dams, sometimes disappearing underground again, and mighty waterfalls crashing down into the misty depths far below.
The causeways over the water; some use more or less timber in their construction, while some are just packed earth between two retaining walls. Some have more grasses growing only on the outer edges, whereas others are more overgrown, with grass peaking out of every gap in the wood.
Before I stay up all night thinking of more and more to write, two final things; the moths fluttering around lanterns, and the butterflies dancing around the fairy ring are fantastic details.

I'll leave reviewing the gameplay to others, because it's very late, and my dying GPU probably wouldn't handle running this map (I'm surprised the World Editor hasn't killed itself in protest while admiring the map, lol).

EDIT: Well, turns out that playing the game didn't quite kill off the old graphics card, though it was running hot with the fans whirring crazily, and towards the end the framerate was in the basement.
So after a very short first game just figuring out the basics of how to play (such as not squandering those important first two minutes, lol), I managed to get slightly over half an hour of proper gameplay before being overwhelmed by an unexpected gargantuan meat wagon demolishing my main defenses whilst attempting to expand to another location, and at the same time being flanked by a flock of unruly gargoyles...not quite sure what ended up killing me, but all in all, @Mr.Goblin, I rather enjoyed the experience, and would definitely recommend to others (I in fact already did so, even before playing it myself, just based on my impression of the map).

Pretty good map but the tech trees are locked besides arcane so you can't do too much yet therefore the game is great play through once or twice but not much more imo

The UI and the terrain are both awesome! I love the environment of the map and its atmosphere. The starting time should be increased if you ask me. 2 minutes don't give that much time for new players to fully understand everything. Not to mention that gathering gold isn't that quick. You should change the return resources tooltip from "nearby Townhall" to "your Camp" or something more intuitive. I literally looked around for my Town Hall xD. I like the variety of structures that can be built. The undead seem to be primarily targeting the structures since I could literally pass through a whole wave with the survivor and none of them attacked me. I don't know if that's intended. The Totem construction is really cool, that can easily hold off the undead if built at the right moment. You can also summon heroes to help you.

Other than that, it's approved!
