Trosnoth

Trosnoth - 1.4.0

Description

Trosnoth is a network team game that requires team strategy to win.
The Trosnoth idea was conceived by a bunch of ÜberTweak leaders who were looking for another network game to play on camp that:
  • was low-cost;
  • was team-based;
  • involved strategy;
  • was easy to teach.

Changes

Changes since version 1.3.2:
  • Updated graphics.
  • Zone tags are no longer permitted after the game is over.
  • Grenade explosions now kill everything in their blast, rather than firing shots in all directions.
  • Grenade can now be launched in any direction, and they bounce.
  • If a long time has passed since the last zone tag, stars start appearing which can be collected to increase your star count.
  • Updated physics: you can no longer fall through the floor at certain buggy map locations.
  • Updated physics: if you press and hold jump while in the air, you will jump the moment you touch ground.
  • Simplified mechanism for purchasing upgrades: you now select an upgrade with number keys, and press space bar to buy and use it.
  • When you first join the game, your ghost is now placed closer to where there is action.
  • Added a lobby mode between games, where players can vote on the settings for the next game.
  • When connecting to a server in lobby mode, you automatically join the game.
  • Players can change their nickname from the menu, but only during lobby mode.
  • Added Trosnoth authentication servers - users can create accounts so that their statistics and achievements can be recorded against the unique player.
  • Added achievements.
  • Added some sounds (disabled by default).
  • Changed default team names to Standardators and Defaulticons (from Blue Team and Red Team).
  • Removed internet game discovery protocol in favour of games registering themselves with a central server.
  • Disabled pirate theme (until such a time as bugs in the way themes work can be fixed)
  • Various miscellaneous bug fixes.

This game looks awesome from what I'm able to see without actually playing it.

If anyone wants to play me, my msn is: "theprototypeus@hotmail.com". One of us can host a server.

Trosnoth, Trosnoth, Trosnoth WOW! This game is excellent!

Why? If you love working together as a team to DESTROY YOUR OPPOSITION then this is for you! Even though the objective of the game is about taking over the map rather than the most kills, it's still fun to annihilate people in any game.

You can see the trosnoth website above, definitely check it out to see how to play.

I would say that this game is best played in a LAN setting so everyone can enjoy the fast paced environment of the game. Because only one shot will kill you, this means everyone is going to be doing lots and lots of dying unless you've perfected how to DODGE BULLETS and become extremely difficult to kill.

I really like this game because it's simple and fun while maintain the focus of teamwork, because when you and a bunch of your mates DESTROY some other people through your combined hard work, it feels great.

Just download it and try it out, it's probably best played with at least 4v4 or higher, just to maintain that teamwork element of the game, otherwise it just becomes a cat and mouse game of chasing zones when there aren't enough people in it. Best of all, the game is free, so LAN party it up.

Chairs!
