Original Thread: It's Creeper Than Ever ... in 3D!! Let's Play Creeper World 4



Creeper World is back!! It's only an alpha tech demo for now, available for the next week with the Steam Summer Games Festival. The next chapter in the Creeper World saga, such as it is, is now open to our first peek.

ETA, 11.19.20: The trailer is out for CW4 (thanks ousire for being quick on the draw in noticing): The expected release date is December 3 now, at which point I intend to hit the ground running.

ETA, 12.3.20: We're now up and running with the release of the full game!

What is this Creeper World you speak of?

My previous bloated adventures covered Creeper World, Creeper World 2, Creeper World 3, and Particle Fleet. This is to be the 5th iteration of the concept. It's somewhat hard to describe, but basically a stripped-down, casualish RTS/tower defense hybrid with a lot of support for scripting and user-created maps in the later versions, and an active community adding IMO the best content that way.

What happens between now and the full version of CW4?

I'll resume doing user maps of the other games via the 'Grab-Bag' series in the interim. We'll get a taste now, then hopefully dive into the rest at launch. That's technical issues permitting, as Steam and my PC have been having an ongoing conflict for several weeks now, and at first the demo wouldn't run at all for me so ... fingers crossed. But there'll be something to put up here regardless; the other games in the CW franchise are still fine. I'll return to weekly uploads during the interim.
