Ironclad: Steam Legions - A steampunk strategy wargame in Clojure
Ironclad: Steam Legions is inspired by many of the old hex-based strategy games from the 1980s and 1990s.
Interesting technical features:
- Written almost entirely in Clojure (http://clojure.org/)
- The game uses a lot of functional programming techniques rather than OOP. For example, the entire game state is a single immutable data structure
- The graphics are rendered using POVRay (http://www.povray.org/)
- The game uses a custom steampunk-themed Swing UI, implemented in the project https://github.com/mikera/steampunk-laf
In the land of Europa war is brewing.....
Take command of a steam-powered army and crush your opponents in glorious battle!
