Mokus Games and tinyBuild Games have announced that RTS BOID is launching today for free on Steam.
BOID is a real-time strategy game where your only resource is your army. Capture spawner bases to create more units, and mutation bases to morph them into classes.
BOID Multiplayer Features:
- Leaderboards, ranked & unranked matches
- A fully functional level editor
- Matches against bots of different difficulty
- Everything you’d expect from a multiplayer indie game
- Twitch Integration
The developer monetizes the multiplayer by simply selling cosmetic skins that have no impact on gameplay. Everyone who bought BOID during Early Access gets the Single-Player DLC for free.
A 10-Hour Single-Player Campaign Sold as DLC
For players who want to either learn the basics of the game in a more structured way, or for those who like single player experiences, we have hand-crafted a 10-hour long single-player campaign that dives deep into the story of the world and teaches you everything you’d need to know. Similar to how most RTSes structure their campaigns, BOID’s single-player focuses on creating situations that you will likely encounter in a multiplayer session.
Here is the BOID launch trailer:
Watch a Starcraft Pro play The Developer
Developed in Early Access for over a year, BOID went through a complete transformation. At its core is a highly competitive real-time strategy game where 3-minute matches give you the exhilaration of a long full-RTS match.
To test this, we invited White-Ra — the infamous StarCraft pro — to play a few matches with Maxym Hryniv, the game’s developer. After a few days of practicing, the two were off and the results are in the video.
Starting today, you will be able to download BOID for free on Steam.
