The Stainless v0.3 beta has been released! Check out the HD trailer, then get it here for Windows XP/Vista/7 (167 Mb). System requirements: I recommend a dual-core processor, with a 512 MB graphics card. I haven’t yet implemented a graphics options screen, so to degrade the settings, you would have to dig through some config files.
Stainless is a strictly multiplayer 3D game that merges the real-time strategy and third person shooter genres. It’s LAN-only, but don’t worry! If you don’t have a friend to play against, try running Stainless-God-Mode instead of Stainless. It’s not an “actual” God mode per se, it just spawns a bunch of allied and enemy bots. Good fun.
The beta has three levels, although one of them is a work-in-progress. The fast-paced action mechanics are basically done, but a few important RTS-like features will be added in the November release, and the final release on January 9, 2010. Also note: OS X and Linux are supported, but I don’t have access to those OS’s at the moment. If you want to, you can download the source release (it includes the assets) and hack your way through the README instructions.
