Moonscrapers is a competitive real-time strategy game that takes place during the cold war. Two players, representing either the USA or the USSR, engage in an online battle with the ultimate goal of claiming the moon. During this mimicked space race, however, players cannot make use of rockets or any other spacecraft. The only way to reach the moon is by building an enormous tower to connect both celestial objects.
Players have to create a stable economy, build various offensive and defensive upgrades and can block one another by building their tower over that of their opponent. With this in mind, choosing the right strategy and adapting this throughout the game is crucial in order to beat the opponent.
Moonscrapers was originally created as an educational group project for Gamelab . The duration of the project was 28 fulltime working days by twelve active members. After a successful delivery the project continued in our spare time in preparation for entry and display at Gamescom 2013 and Indigo Utrecht 2014.
