Total Mayhem 10: release this November, or Soon™ - posted by gamma - Wed 19 Oct 2022, 10:58 PM - 18 Comments

Ok, so yes I DID say there would be an official release in September, and apologies for the elay.

But there are some good reasons for the delay. Here are a couple of those reasons.

Total Mayhem 10: release this September - posted by gamma - Wed 31 Aug 2022, 3:42 AM - 6 Comments

Well, a group of us have been beavering away, feverishly playtesting a new version, and it's nearing a point where we'd like a wider audience.

What's new?

  • balance had diverged over time from the way TA was originally - for no good reason, really. This version goes back to the way TA was, and back to the whole point of doing a "rebalance": just makes all the units useful. Thanks very much to ProTA being an excellent reference point for this.
  • The Spider and Tortoise labs are gone :( owing to being impossible to balance (spiders all-terrain, tortoises amphibious...) But some of them still remain in the other T2 land plants, and other new units have been added to fill gaps.
  • Overall the 200+ added units feel like much more of a cohesive part of TA, and it plays like TA with a couple of extra expansion packs added :)

Stay tuned...

Been a while since an update. New version is incoming! With actually less units! And better balancing!

About a month ago I started this channel with a mixture of playthroughs vs AI on various maps live, and commentary on online multiplayer replays.

TOTAL MAYHEM 8.1.5 is out! Official release - posted by gamma - Fri 5 Jun 2020, 9:08 AM - 1 Comment

This version has been out in the wild a couple days and has been played pretty heavily online.

While it's still a work in progress, it's definitely hella fun, and with the megamap/w-key/ctrl-b/ctrl-f etc issues fixed and it being stable and quite well balanced I figured best get this out there.

Download here:

Total Mayhem 8.1.5 19.2MB.

Hope to see you online on Gameranger and Discord.

Mayhem player and general hardcore gamer Poseidon372 wants to get a tournament going.

I'm happy to support this, and will look at doing a "tournament release" which will be based on the current version with any bugfixes and glaring balance issues ironed out well before the tournament starts.

Lets get this happening. Who's in? You think you're the best?? Let us know in his poll here.
