Description

The game-child of dev-duo Andy Domin and Sara Domin, AUTOMAKHAN is a fast-paced multiplayer real-time strategy game built from the ground up with HTML5 web technologies. Inspired by classic RTS games and the spinoffs that followed. Build your base, protect your crystal, and lead your AI team into battle with a powerful hero. Cyberspace meets fantasy in this truly unique world of magic and napalm.

History

Early history

Andy and Sara began to collaborate in 2006. Defying strict categorization, their music, featuring angelic vocals atop intricately produced electronic beats, began to evolve across mediums, eventually into high-tech games.

Music

The pair incorporate an unusually diverse range of influences in their electronic sounds, from ambient to hardcore punk. Their 3 albums experiment fearlessly within bounds of classical production techniques. Despite (or owing to) the range of influences, their sound is inarguably original. Their first breakthrough music album, Prah Suomafni Ruoy (2007), has sold thousands of copies online through word of mouth alone. Escapes From the Cage was a followup album in 2009 and Forever Transient in 2010.

Games

The cross-pollination of music and games has enhanced the pair's mastery of both. Innovation with procedural music generation being a signature technique, applied to their first game Geo-Duck, a non-linear 2d side-scroller with an infinite soundtrack. Octoquest, a 2d psychedelic retro RPG, followed in 2010. Their last release in 2012, Chalk It Up, is a simple yet sublime 3d billiards game playable on mobile devices.

Recent

Development of AUTOMAKHAN began in 2012 with a beta version available late 2016. The game is under active development and the web platform enables instant updates and content expansion. The game is free-to-play in the Firefox or Chrome browser. It will never be pay-to-win, but eventually monetized with crowdfunding or cosmetic upgrades.
