Full Information:

The Coming Swarm is a simple tower defense game where you must fend of encroaching insectoid aliens while gathering enough scrap metal to harden your defenses. The metal you must collect to win the round is the same as the metal you use to build new defenses, so balancing spending and profit is key.

This was the first complete game I worked on, made as a class project in my freshman year at WPI in 2012. While it is a relatively simple game, creating it helped me learn a lot about the basic process of game design, as well as working with a team.
