Widelands

Post by GunChleoc » November 12th, 2016, 12:36 pm

Seems like this is RTS games release week - 0 A.D, Wesnoth, and now Widelands as well. We have just released Build 19 :)

Widelands is a free, open source real-time buildup strategy game with single player campaigns and a multiplayer mode. The game was inspired by Settlers II™ (© Bluebyte) but has significantly more variety and depth to it.

You are the regent of a small clan. Your task is to build an ever growing settlement. Every member of your clan will do his or her part to produce more resources to further this growth.

Widelands offers a single-player mode with campaigns that tell stories of the tribes and their struggle in the Widelands universe. However, settling really starts when you unite with friends over the Internet or LAN to build up new empires together – or to crush each other in the dusts of war. Widelands also offers an artificial intelligence to challenge you.

I used to play Widelands a few years back, it didn't have most of the animations back then and I think that the Atlanteans didn't exist.
These days not only does it have all the animations but all the races look totally different (in settlers only the soldiers looked different).
Not only does it look pretty but it is interesting to play, the Barbarians, Empire and Atlanteans do things in different ways. I put this one up there with Wesnoth and Shovel Knight and fully endorse it without reservation.
...apparenly we can't go with it or something.
