A downloadable game for Windows

I was able to achieve over 60FPS on RTX 2060 with double bounce reflections enabled and resolution 2560x1440.

Solder is a short RTS-style game concept placed in the futuristic science fiction world inside the computer on an imagined PC Board.
The tech demo is an introduction to basic RTS mechanics based on a parasite chip called SOLDER that evolves during the journey on PCB.


-Click the left mouse button on the entity to select
-When the entity is selected then click the right button on the pc board to command the move to the location.
-Use the mouse wheel button hold to rotate the camera.
-Use the mouse button wheel up/down to zoom in/out.
-Use W/A/S/D/arrows  to move the camera and Q/E to rotate the camera by 45'
- F11 fullscreen
-Esc to exit

After finishing the demo you will see a short cutscene that is presenting the level with ray tracing.

I am planning to extend this demo in the future into a combination of my favorite RTS games like Dune / Age of Empires but placed in the science fiction world where you have to build a civilization of microchips and manage cooling, processors, memory, a number of tasks that can be executed at the same time and fight against typical computer enemies like bugs, errors, crashes, viruses, nasal demons, and memory leaks.

A few weeks of work is not enough time to produce a fully functional RTS so I've decided to present the ray tracing in the short campaign mode introduction.

I believe it's an interesting concept so maybe if there will be some interest in this game then I will finish the project as the full-flagged game. Only you can convince me that it is worth trying :)

Amazing style!

I'm getting 30 FPS on GTX 1080 in Full HD. What sorcery is this!?!

WOW !. A visual masterpiece, would love to see the full game like that.
