YogsCast: Photon Cycles

Photon Cycles on YogsCast by JademsSreg

A few months ago, we featured JademusSreg's Photon Cycles map project and it seems as if it's caught the attention of the popular gaming podcast, YogsCast. It's very interesting to listen to what these guys have to say about the project, because they are clearly not SC2 players. That isn't bashing at all, it's just always interesting to get some feedback from outsiders of our normal community, :).

Power Towers by nekochrono

Nekochrono has just announced his map, called Power Towers. What makes this different from the other TD maps? He has created a power-transfer system for the towers. Generators generate power and can be linked to other towers to provide them with power. Energy can be stored with capacitors for later use and chains of capacitors can be set up to hold extra energy for each wave. In addition, every tower level has its own model and every creep has a unique model. It has three different game modes, including a team mode where players work together and help each other out. All towers have varying abilities and six levels of upgrades. Make sure to check it out!

Master Commander and PropHunt

Posted by Molsterr Sep 05, 2011 at 01:00 UTC

Master Commanderby Monictor

Master Commander is a 1v1 turn-based strategy game inspired by Final Fantasy Tactics , in which each player commands a group of rpg-archetype unit classes to out-strategize and eliminate his opponent. Make sure to check out the video below for more details about how the game plays out! You can check out his thread, and another great video here.

PropHuntBy xil_theMINISTER

PropHunt is a sc2 map remake of a TF2 mod. In this game players select a "prop" to be and hide around the map, while other players attempt to seek them out. Some of you may remember this type of gameplay from bounty's doodad hunt. However, this time around you wont have to deal with a first person PoV. Make sure to give the video a watch and check out the maps beta thread here
