Attached some new screenshots of the current 2 levels and Menu for selecting missions!
Only 2 levels to go until launch! HURRAY!
How far would you go to save the woman you love?
Would you cross the world to find her? Would you resist fire, storm, acid, machine guns, lasers, bombs, aliens and whatever else lied in your path?
Well, this zergling would!
After the defeat of the Queen of Blades, a new era was born for the Zerg. Without their master mind to control their every action, they were now free to do as they desired. And what a certain Zergling wanted was simple, but beautifull... love.
Yes! The simplest of the Zerg lifeforms found it's way to one of the most complex of emotions! The Zergling was loving, loving a Queen for that matter!
And most surprising, the Queen was loving this simpleton as well!
Alas, love doesn't come with ease to the likes of them, for they differences were far too great to be cast aside!
Terrans, Protoss and Zergs alike found this to be an abomination!
The Terrans could not understand how this happened; The Protoss found it to be simply grotesque (ask your friendly Zealot neighbour what he thinks of inter-racial Zerg copulating and you'll get what I'm saying); And the Zerg could not allow a Queen to get involved with one of the lowest and more expendable of their ranks.
Curious as humans are, they took the Queen away from the poor Zergling to study why the furious and malevolent Zerg was experiencing such emotions.
And there lied the first of many obstacles for our mighty Zergling hero!
Will he be able to rescue his Queen from the Terran Scientists? Will he be able to rise above prejudice and be with the one he loves?
In this map you will control a Zergling in a platformer like environment, fighting all kinds of enemies and seeking all kinds of items to aid you on your quest for the Queen. Kinda like a Mario game, but with Zerglings, machine guns, cannons and less mushrooms (perhaps more, still not sure).
Here's a small video of the gameplay (small indeed, my fraps is starter version =/ ).

Loving the stoy! :D
When I saw the hearts I first thought it'd be a zelda clone, only with a zergling....WHICH WOULD BE AMAZING... But I guess a side-scroller is cool, too. :P
Looking for testers in EU: Thread on SC2Mapster,
It does look great and fun...but again Im afraid once more WASD wont work on bnet. Maybe you release it so you dont have to play it on bnet? that would save a lot of delay atleast.
(metal slug also looked really great, but it was just unplayable due horrible movement and delay)...
My youtube channel: Here!
Project "Magic RPG" - Enter the Magic
Project "Goku Firebat" - Kaaameeehaaameee...
Don't worry about lag in bnet, because this map is NOT made for bnet, only for single player.
I tried to make bnet maps with WASD already thinking "oh, the lag cannot be that bad" but it is. Since then I've been focusing on single player offline maps, which do not suffer that damn lag.
Thanks for the comments! Working on a bigger video with larger gameplay footage.
In short more evidence is needed that it is user friendly.

Considered easy altering of the unit textures?
For my public assets look here!
I've been told that if you use the command card for WASD movement it doesn't lag quite as bad. Haven't checked it out myself though.
Anyway, this looks great! A platformer would be the perfect distraction from all of the MOBA nonsense being thrown about lately. Also it's not a TD, which is automatically a plus in my book :)
As long as the controls are tight and there's plenty of interesting maneuvers you can do as the Zergling, I can see this being a very enjoyable experience. Good luck.

Check first post for new pics of the finished levels! =D
Only 2 levels to go before the first part of the thrilling Zergling saga "The Zergling - Terrans!" release! WOHOOO!
Looks amazing :D
I love the UI, I think that this is the greatest addon from WC3.
just found this. Is there any playable version of it? Looks epic!
There are many worlds, but they all share the same sky.
Somnium Demo (1st draft)
Hello you all. Christmas morning I was browsing through my files and saw this little map I made.
The Zergling 2 first missions, and probably the only 2 that will be released.
Hope you enjoy!
