Top-Quality Open Source Game 0 A.D. Close to Completion

Filed under
Gaming

The open source channel is known for a lot of things, but breathtaking games isn’t one of them. That may change soon, though, thanks to the people behind the open source game 0 A.D., which in its latest iteration brings gorgeous and elegant gaming to the free software world — and it’s still in alpha. Read on for a look at the amazing things these volunteer programmers have accomplished in recent months, and what they mean for the open source channel as a whole.

0 A.D., the open source RTS game for Windows, Linux and OS X, has been a long time in the making — more than a decade, in fact. But even when I first covered it two years ago, I knew it was something special. As perhaps the only open source game with a truly professional agenda, it stood out in an ecosystem where few development teams have the patience to undertake such a major project with the intent of giving away the final product for free. As a result, the game exhibited a potential to reshape parts of the open source channel by proving top-quality games are not something commercial developers alone are capable of creating.
