    Phoronix: 0 A.D. Real -Time Strategy Game Sees First Release In Nearly Three Years

    When it comes to original, open-source computer games the 0 A.D. real-time strategy game is among the best. The game has been developed as open-source for more than a decade for this ancient warfare themed game. The prior 0 A.D.

            When I saw the title of the article, I read ninety three years, hahahah. First glance perceptions, hahahah.


            Fired it up to give it a quick look. Going to have to dedicate some time to this one. Looks nice.

              They should release it on steam and charge a couple of bucks (while keeping the free download on their site). It can stay open source but the integration of something like Steam would make it much more popular for playing games with friends.

                  Charge $5 or $10 and go the Ardour route where they're like "you can build it from source if you know how to, otherwise it's a convenience fee of auto-updating and integrating into your gaming library.

                  It was actually a pretty good game but had some mechanical issues it needed worked out, otherwise they are on the right path. Can't wait to try. I hope it doesn't throttle my poor VEGA 64 to crazy temps like it used too -- it didn't work from the Arch Repos before so I had to use Flatpak hopefully that is fixed now.

                    Exactly. And this way they can get some funding to actually invest more time into the game, maybe even hire a full-time dev
