The Maestros is an online multiplayer Real Time Strategy/Arena Deathmatch game inspired by classic RTS games like Warcraft and Starcaft. In The Maestros, you control a commander and his squadron of wildy cuddly and mildly vicious minions. Play as either the dieselpunk Knights of Teutonia with their clunky, transforming robots or as the futuristic Alchemists of Regalis with their adorable, mutating monsters.
The Maestros began life as a student project at the University of Southern California. It was majorly inspired by Warcraft 3, and elements of MOBAs as well. From about Sept. 2013 to May 2014, the core game was built by a team of students and hobbyists all pitching in what we could and building a fun “first alpha” that we eventually put in front of people. At the conclusion of the class, most of our core team graduated from their various schools and/or went on to get jobs. We had such a blast making it though, that a handful of us kept plugging away after work every week, hoping some day we could get a finalized version of the game in front of people’s faces with all the awesome stuff we had envisioned.
