We Love Nuclear Armageddon is a satirical strategy game about interplanetary nuclear war. Playable in both local multiplayer and single-player matches on your mobile device, players take turns constructing buildings, launching missiles, and deploying shields in a bid to destroy each other. It reduces the strategy game down to its basics, emphasizing positioning over resource management across dense, quick matches. It's a bite-sized, stylized, tactical game, blending the looming threat of nuclear war with the cheerful anxieties of 1950's America to provide players with an arcade-style experience unique within the competitive strategy market.

The 10 of us worked for 7 months to create the game. The team consisted of 1 producer, 2 engineers, 3 artists, and 4 designers. It was created in Unity 3D using a custom framework, BeauSharp, created by our lead engineer. We brought the game to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for the 2015 Game Fest competition, where it won 1st place overall.
