Player-scripted MMORTS Screeps is launching on August 12


Billing itself as “The world’s first strategy sandbox MMO game for programmers,” Screeps is heading out of beta next week when it officially releases on August 12th.

So what is this unusual game? Screeps is an open-world MMORTS sandbox in which players control a colony of “creeps” by programming actions for them in Javascript. Creeps will continue to follow their scripts whether or not a player is online, offering a round-the-clock persistent world of action. Screeps was partially funded by Indiegogo and will charge for “CPU credits” to power scripts.

You can watch Screeps’ game trailer after the break.
