The other day I was looking for a game and Freeciv caught my eye.

Installation
The source package is very simple to install. There is an INSTALL document in the package that gives good directions. You can compile and play the game right in the same directory, or you can install it to a directory of your choice, like /usr/games.

Getting Started

There are a few gameplay modes: basic single-player, scenario, and networked multi-player. Once you kick off the single player game, you can also take a look at some of the options to tweak the game as you like:

    Three years, five months and eleven days... yes, it's the elapsed time since our last release announcement. But don't despair! We're still alive and kicking. We've been busy working on our next release which is much more ambitious than the previous one. As part of this future release, we had to adjust a bit how we store some information. That is why today we are announcing a transitional minor release. Behold Zanshin 0.2.2!

  • Fruits of Akademy
    For the second time I had the chance to attend Akademy, this time in cold and rainy La Coruña. It has been a week of interesting talks, good food (except for one Tortilla incident), and hacking. [...] KRunner History is Back Supposedly this was one of the reason I still saw quite a few people running Plasma 4 during the conference but now there’s no more reason not to do the switch! ;)
