Avaneya – More Than Just A Game

Filed under
Gaming

Avaneya is a science fiction FOSS game exclusively for the GNU/Linux platform. It focuses on social justice, human rights,city building, adventure, strategy, economics and sustainability amidst a Martian planetary setting in the future.

This project was started 8 months ago by Kip and expected to be finished within 3 years.

This is a very unique game project because of several things :

1. Avaneya will be released under the GPLv3 license and the content of the game under the Creative Commons, thus making it free for all.

2. Avaneya will be compiled exclusively for the GNU/Linux platform.
