Welcome to Coldest

Welcome to the home of the open source mech combat game, Coldest. On this site you can find general information about playing the game, screenshots, and forums for contacting other players and the developer. Best of all, the game is completely free so don't hesitate to give it a try!

Note: The game is currently in a state that could generously be described as beta. The site is similar. Please report any problems with either of them in the forums or the bugs database.

Master of the (Coldest) Universe

Yeah, I watched He-Man when I was a kid. And I totally had a crush on She-Ra. I mean, her name was Princess Adora so how could I not? :-)

Development is going well and if I'm lucky I'll have something playable for Mega LAN XXI. I had an interesting experience while attempting to enable keyboard repeat for GUI widgets though, and I thought for the sake of maybe saving someone else some aggravation I would post about it here.

Hello World

Welcome to the birth of the new Coldest web site. There isn't much here yet because, while the game is coming along nicely, there are still some major gameplay decisions to be made. Until those have been made the game information is going to have to remain a bit sketchy. However, I should be posting some early screens soon, most of which were taken because of interesting bugs.:-)

Stay tuned as we're getting pretty close to an early alpha release. It may have some placeholder graphics, but it should be enough to give you an idea of what Coldest is all about.
