What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“There are plenty of features that I still want to add, such as LAN Multiplayer, and Modding and Workshop Support. I also want to add things new units, new types of units, new and improved maps, as well as introduce improvements to things like the formation system or the enemy AI.
Most importantly, I want time to get community feedback on what does/does not work, as well as what y'all would like to see tweaked or added to the game so that I can create something we'll both enjoy for a long time to come!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately six months. Exact development time will depend on my college schedule.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“I plan on implementing Multiplayer, Mod/Workshop support that will let y'all create your own units and maps, as well as Multi/Cross-Platform support, more map options, different levels of AI/Game difficulty, and more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The heart and soul of the game is there, ready to for your enjoyment. I just need to improve and flush things out.
For details on what is present in the game, refer to the 'About This' section.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will increase by whatever amount is deemed appropriate upon full release, depending on how much content has been added to the beta.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Contrary to big-business models, it is the Community that makes a game. Y'all are more than welcome to let me know what you want to see, what you like, and what really needs tweaked.
This is especially true for bugs and other nasty surprises.

If for some reason you don't want to use the steam forum for Bacteria Wars (or it magically explodes into nothingness), you can also find me on Twitter (http://twitter.com/BacteriaWars13), or if it's really really important (say a seriously bad bug), email me directly at iwanttotalktoyou13@gmail.com.
Kindly don't email me just to complain :)”

About This Game

Command your Bacteria in a war against the Cell Defense Force! Invade their territory, conquer their bases, and turn their own footholds against them in a world where your Units are your only resource! Fight battles across the a variety of unique maps where attacks could come from any direction, and know that any battle could be the difference between victory and death!

Oh, but it's not just mighty CDF you have to worry about. You must hold your ground against the armies of your fellow Bacteria, watch your back during the Late-Game event, and pray it isn't the Zombie Cell option that you selected!

Key Features:

  • Your Units Are Your Greatest (And Only) Resource:
Each player receives a continuous income of resources based on the number and type of units they have in their army. As your army expands, so too will your resource production... but be warned that the loss of your units will reduce your resource production, and your stockpile is limited in quantity.
Victory is therefore not likely to be achieved by simply throwing your units – your precious resources – at the enemy!

  • Mobile Bases:
Take the phrase "Adapt or Perish" to the next step! Static immobile bases are easy targets in a maze of tunnels that are constantly being patrolled by CDF forces. Every unit under your control may be moved around at will. Make good use of this newfound flexibility!

  • Late-Game Stage:
Spice up the late-game experience with a customizable Late-Game Event! From a fifteen minute rush to a one hour long-play, and from the entrance of a fourth player to the arrival of a nigh-unstoppable zombie plague, this event will surely mix things up. Up the difficulty and atmosphere by enabling Dark Mode, which disables all ambient light when the Late-Game Event starts.

  • Upgrade and Specialize Your Units:
Each Unit can be upgraded to better perform certain tasks, from increased detection range or faster production, to becoming an unstoppable juggernaut!

  • Customizable Unit Formations:
Adapt your units' formation to any situation on any terrain. If you're surrounded on all sides, will you circle up into a defensive ball, or bunch together into a devastating hammer and blow through to relative safety?
