Young's Modulus 2.0 Released
9:13 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
An update to the X-Plane web site pointed us to the new 2.0 release of another 3D program by the same author: Young's Modulus. This unusual game is a robot/mech sim which now touts multiplayer as its newest feature. You can now control entire fleets of robots in combat on forbidding planets, wielding powerful weapons. Here's a clip from the web site with a description:
In it, you command an All Terrain Attack Walker, or ATAW, in combat against an alien race whose goal is to rid the Universe of the Human Race. You will start with the lowly Genesis-class ATAW (merely a converted cargo-walker with a gun on the top), and work of through the fresh-design Atlantic, the fast and powerful Olympic, the ultra-high-speed Huron, the massive Agamemnon and Marathon, the high-tech and agressive Tornado and Cyclone, the towering Galaxy, and finally the Ultimate: the TITANIC-class ATAW, which towers 100 meters tall, packing an unbelievable onslaught of weaponry. (But, interestingly, is too big to manuever very well).Head over to the official web site now to check out the screen shots and download a demo version of 2.0. Young's Modulus requires a 200Mhz processor, with a 3D card that supports OpenGL.

Your weapons will run the gamut from basic rockets to gatling lasers and guided machine-guns, with torpedos and ion-cannons thrown in for good measure.
The planets you fight on will vary from the frozen wastelands of Centauri-V to the burning hell-deserts of Kentaurus-Prime.
