Has anyone made a grid view game like dwarf fortress?

Discuss game development design and post your game ideas

Obviously I don't mean as complex as dwarf fortress. Has anyone seen a construct two game that uses a RTS'ish game where the player doesn't directly control things. I plan on starting a new project like this, but wanted to see if there were any examples already out there.

I'm trying to experiment with different types of games to really gain a deep understanding of this amazing 2d game engine.

RTS can be done sure, here is a tutorial i found on forum RTS Tutorial, there is also a RTS example in C2 itself check it out when you press file>new>project list example. The good part with C2 is that you can virtually do almost any 2d game with it. However you might face development problems, while you clutter your event system and forget what things do if you plan in building something as large and complex as Dwarfs Fortress is. Happy Development !!

I created a game last week for a 9 day game jam called proc jam (https://bitmen.itch.io/specimen-mkultra) and it has some RTS like controls and we have been working on implementing controlling multiple characters. It is surprisingly easy and if you could definitely work your way up to dwarf fortress level of complex you will just need to be organized.

Thanks for the reply! I will be sure to checkout your game when I get out of my classes later today!

Nice game! Not what I was meaning but I love the way you implemented the RTS-like controls. That's a different and really nice concept!
