​McDROID is a surreal Action Tower Defense with
- mega frikkin' lasers that talk
- upgradable robots
- Gattling turret
- crop and monsters that mutate
- an economy based on giant strawberries.
- levels hand crafted like they used be.
- Cute cartoony Borderland graphics, but it's hella tough so you may have to co-op with your friends to take down that insane Mutatosaurus.​
Imagine the hectic big boss fights of RTYPE combined with the smarts and resource management of Dune 2. That's ​McDROID, our first game, made in homage of these awesome classics.
It's original, with gorgeous cell shaded graphics, boasts 100 enemies on screen at once, the most badass weapons (linking teslas, wave canons, bot factories...) and unusually challenging enemies.
It's a tough game, not for the faint of heart and it's got co-op multiplayer.

McDROID live on Steam September 5th at 10am + Beta Backer steam keys.

A feature wishlist:

1. Research that lowers the cost of upgrades. I am thinking most upgrades could have a cost reduction upgrade tied to them. Like, if something costs 70 strawberries, you could research "efficient production" for 200 diamonds, and after that the things costs 45 Strawberries. Thus, if you are hardcore you can play without cost upgrades. If you are like me, that wants some resistance, but not frustratingly much, I could grind the lower levels and reduce the cost of the stronger upgrades.

2. Bigger percentage of turrets that aren't tied to those hole things in the ground.

3. Level/Campaign editor!

Love the game, even bought it.

Beta feedback: Sound from the level isn't ending when you get destroyed or finish. This, is kind of horrible. Hurts my ears. Also, when the asteroids come in, my ears feel like they are going to pop.

To explain about my sound comment, there is a voice talking sometimes, but I can't hear it unless I crank the volume up. So, my initial comment was a bit confused, I don't handle sounds well. Very sensitive and I get rattled and can't make constructive comments.

What you need to do is raise the level on the computer voice, so that you don't have to have an earsplitting volume on to hear it.

I am using the Linux 64 bit version on a Linux mint Maya (64 bit), using ALSA and possibly OSS sound. (Had to purge Pulseaudio because it had 32 bit compatibility issues that Object up voice chat in Second Life, which is a platform I spend a lot of time in.)

Sound is a bit better now. 3D sound is a bizatch to tune.

Try to run demo under x86_64 system:

optirun /home/roger/bin/desura/common/mcdroid/McDROID
/home/roger/bin/desura/common/mcdroid/McDROID: error while loading shared libraries: libXcursor.so.1

rpm -qa | grep lib64xcursor1

Still does not not support x86_64 platform?
