T.H.U.G.S. is an urban conflict simulator with strategy elements similar to risk. It was created as a student project at the Digipen Institute of Technology as our Junior year game project, we worked on it during 2 semesters. We are working now in Vektor Space as our Senior Project.

Our game was chosen to participate at the 2002 Independent Games Festival Student Showcase at the Game Developers Conference in San Jose, CA during March 21th-23th, 2002.

We started working on the game since September 2001, and the game was finished in April 2002.

The game features a single player mode where you can battle against 3 AI enemies, or a multiplayer mode where you can battle against other 3 human players on a LAN or the Internet.

We all in our team helped to program the game, and we also had an extra role, here are the names, hats and e-mails of the developers of T.H.U.G.S.
