Genetic RTS, BOID, Launches Today with Free Multiplayer
July 8, 2016 – Launching today on Steam with free multiplayer and an optional single-player campaign, BOID is real-time strategy at its most primal. No funds to manage or infrastructures to build. It’s a kill or be killed battle of rapid decisions to dominate the gene pool.
BOID’s multiplayer is completely free and full-featured, including head-to-head PvP, bot matches, Twitch integration, and the ability to design and share your own levels. And, for those who prefer the single-player experience, BOID offers a 10-hour campaign sold as optional DLC.
Watch the launch trailer here:
BOID was designed with competitive play in mind, and to test this, we invited White-Ra — the infamous StarCraft pro — to play a few matches with Maxym Hryniv, the game’s developer. You can watch the two players face off here:
BOID’s Twitch integration allows viewers to become active participants in streamed matches, using a chat based voting system to keep their favorite broadcasters on their toes by enabling in-game modifiers and bonuses.
