[Robots and Aliens]

Added on 01/04/2012
Tags: robotics :: Mindstorms :: C++ :: AI

After a couple of releases of my NXC UserInteraction library that has already registered some downloads, I am retracting for a while to C++ until I can afford more sensors for my lego robot. I've decided to revisit Alien Farm, a strategy game I created as a part of my BSC thesis.

I am planning to fix some bugs and make improvements, as well as create a few missions people could play as a campaign demo. Alien Farm could perhaps become a full game one day. Until then, I will have fun creating a world of moody aliens that have a will of their own when it comes to obeying player's commands.

Stardust Colonies
Alien farm has officially become Stardust Colonies, after a game name poll I did on Facebook some time ago. The web site will launch soon so that people can read more about the game and join alpha testing...
Busy working on Alien Farm
For the last couple of weeks, I have been working on a strategy game with working name 'Alien Farm'. I have done a lot of improvements and bug fixes and almost ready to move to creating a few campaign missions...
NXC UserInteraction Library
The User Interaction (UIn) Library helps you create standard user interfaces (multi-line aligned texts, buttons, menus, etc.) and capture user actions on the NXT brick. The library works with the intelligent brick buttons and keeps all your sensor ports free for your program to use.
Alien Farm
Alien Farm is a strategy game that I created for my Undergraduate dissertation 'Incorporating Inner States for Agent Systems in Strategy Games' where the player-controlled units are aware of and affected by both their own memory and preferences and their colony’s well-being.
