Buildism, developers of the 2DWorlds online building tool, is happy to announce the release of a new multiplayer game, Vexillum.

Vexillum is a fast-paced Capture the Flag game that mixes elements of side-scrolling battle games like Worms and Soldat. Players fight in realtime in destructible maps, aiming to capture the enemy's flag while protecting theirs. There are currently 3 weapons (a rocket launcher, sword, and SMG) and more are planned to be added. Vexillum is designed to be customized; players can host servers with custom maps and game settings. Map making is easily done with an image editing program and the included tools. Simple controls make the game easy to learn, but the grappling hook and destroyable terrain make more advanced strategies possible through teamwork.

Vexillum is free and available now at http://playvexillum.com for Windows. Development started in May 2012 and the first public testing was in February 2013. Development is still in progress, and will focus on adding more default maps and weapons.
