As I’ve said before, Fireflies is a simple RTS heavily inspired by E McNeill’s “Auralux”. The purpose of making it was to exercise my programming skills and try out some new stuff.

Something I’ve always wanted to add to a game, but never had the time or know-how, was a proper level-editor. I feel I did a relatively good job, even if the Editing UI is super basic.

It also made it much easier to test the AI by being able to quickly generate a scenario and run it without having to recompile or restart the program.

The game also features a scripted tutorial.
