BM Elite Force 2

This is the second game in the BM Elite Force series (not much related to each other). BM Elite Force 2 has been my autumn/winter project of 2012. I started this "tradition" in 2011 where I create a new game in a new (for me) language every year and release it around christmas dedicated to my good old friends when we meet up. This year the game was written in Scala using the Java library Slick 2D (built on LWJGL).

Video

You can see a video of the entire game here: http://vimeo.com/antonfagerberg/bm-elite-force-2

Downloads

Builds & Requirements

Pre-compiled versions for OS X, Windows and Linux is found in the project root (in the folders named OS X, Windows and Linux). If you just want to download the game, use the link above (Google Code). GitHub will give an error message if you try to download it directly: "Error: blob is too big" (you will have to clone the entire thing to get it).

Controls

This game is meant to be played with and Xbox 360 controller. You really should use one to enjoy this game (analog precision makes all the difference) and it has the correct color coding. There is however keyboard bindings avaliable if you just want to try it out.

Bugs

There are some bugs which I know of but I'm not currently not trying to fix them. Feel free to submit a pull request if you wish. :)

Linux

Fullscreen mode and Sound doesn't work in Ubuntu 12.10 as far as I can tell?

Requirements

Java 1.6+ is required. Everything else is distributed with the pre-compiled builds.
