Alien Weather

Game Information
Short Introduction: 
Humanity's great alien overlords have returned after establishing the species to tend to the Earth, only to find this garden of life abused and eroded. In turn, they will use the same nature they neglected to erode humanity's existance to nothing. You are the alien commander of the Hurricane Fleet, and your wrath will be unyeilding.
Platform note: 
DX10 class GPU required
Brief Play Description: 

Command waves, rain, lightning and wind as you direct the Hurricane Fleet towards the total annihilation of humanity (minus a few saved for the pet market). Harvest the energy they have wasted to upgrade your vessel of destruction. Watch entire cities crumble before you. Hear the drowing cries of a broken age until only silence remains. You have become death: The destroyer of this world.

Well, that was the intent. I got as far as integrating the fluid and rigid body physics, and setting up basic test controls. It looks cool at least.

You can press the spacebar to launch more balls into the fluid. Mouse/WASD/arrows for movement. Hold down the right mouse button to change your orientation; scroll wheel moves you along the vertical axis.
