this mod is a playable games designed in two goals :
1 first be the tech demo of what can be the most simple game playable for spring and provide so a base for beginner game/mod makers ;
2second be a fun little dot war game with a special gameplay never see before : you or the Ai computer will build and self replicate your unit and avoid to loose them by mass because all units explod when ennemy is near but the treath is than unit exlod so stong than kill friends near and them when die explod too and can propagate deth if they are closely distribued on map : for resume its related to chained explod and man can loose the game at first encounter if not carefull to let safe space empty ; strategic gameplay can be reach by moving line of your units in foe area ;

(fun fact : the screenshoots are just 1000* size of the gam itself then that will be more fun to make a 100Mo video trailer )
