Stick Around for Stick Veterans

Stick Veterans, a game I published not long ago, has been updated. New features include:

  • 2D Mode: you can now play the classic, platform-shooter style game, in addition to the already available 3D Mode. You can also play 2D Mode with friends in splitscreen using gamepads.
  • 2 new maps for 3D Mode: "Castle" and "Factory-5".
  • Fixed the issue with some Mac computers not showing any maps to play.
  • Other fixes/improvements.

Next up on my list, assuming I do not shift my priority into other projects, is making a repository that keeps maps updated and allows for user-made maps. After that comes LAN/online multiplayer, which will be the most ambitious and demanding goal for this project so far.

Some of you may have played the classic games Stick Soldiers 1 and 2 by WhiteSpaceUnlimited. Stick Soldiers belongs to the list of small, humble games that manage to captivate our interest and have made many of us spend a lot of our free time and have a lot of fun. (you can download them here: SS1, SS2)

Stick Soldiers has remained discontinued for the past years after the hiatus of the development team and the cancellation of the long-awaited sequel Stick Soldiers 3 by Andrew Russell Studios.

For a long time, I have aspired to revive the Stick Soldiers series by making a fan sequel to the game. Since school's start, I spent about a whole year working on a Game Maker / Ultimate3D project, aiming to evolve it to a complete and worthy sequel, which I called "Stick Soldiers: Encore". Second year of school …
