EDIT: Based on input on here and from various playtesters, the successor to this game is currently under construction. Feel free to get in touch with me with any new feedback on the current version.
Operation: Vast Expanse puts you among the last surviving military personnel of the Vast Expanse research facility.
Players - Singleplayer OR 2-player coop
Location - SC2 Arcade (American+European servers)
After a catastrophic security incident left the majority of the base heavily compromised, the chain of command for the facility exhausted all of its available defensive options in an effort to contain the problem. It has now become clear that there is nothing left to do but survive until help can arrive.
You play as one of the final members of a squad that was wiped out when investigating one sector of the base. In the process you became trapped between the threat you failed to contain and a large body of water. With no way out, you must fight off all enemies until someone can come rescue you.
How To Play
Controls are similar to something like Diablo's point-and-click style. The left mouse button fires your weapon, right mouse button allows you to move, and click+mouse move will cause your character to follow accordingly.
'R' allows you to reload and 'B' gives you access to an in-game control panel with weapon upgrades, stationary defenses and various calldowns to help you hold the line.
Request For Feedback
This map is available on the American+European servers as "Operation: Vast Expanse (ARPG)". Please play it if you're interested and leave feedback! I am trying to put together a list of things people like/don't like to help me craft the next version of the game.
The game as it is is more of a proof of concept than anything else. Future releases will have larger maps and far more features, assuming people actually like how the core gameplay works.
