    Default The Open-Source 0 A.D. Game Gets An Alpha Build

    Phoronix: The Open-Source 0 A.D. Game Gets An Alpha Build

    Back in July we reported on the 0 A.D. game going open-source, an OpenGL real-time strategy title that had been in development for nearly a decade but hadn't yet had a stable release so the decision was made to take the game open-source in hopes of spurring new development efforts. Well, just a little over a month after that announcement, the first alpha release of 0 A.D. is now available...

    I have to say I'm pretty impressed. The game is far from feature complete, and really not much of a game at this stage of development, but it's very pretty looking and seems extremely promising. The Fedora package installed without a hiccup and I had fun just messing around with what's been implemented so far. A big thumbs up to the devs.

    I would prefer a proper FLOSS release of the Build engine.

    What's a proper FLOSS release? The Build engine (1.5) was GPL'd in 2003. EDuke32 wouldn't exist if it hadn't.

    AFAIK the Build engine is no-commericial, but Duke3D is released under the GPL.

    I tried it out a few months ago with i965 and it was working then, I'll try it again on i965 and r300g when I'm done downloading.

    Seems to work fine on i965.

    Some of the maps (like the one called Units) have a completely black environment, but I'm not sure if that's a driver problem or the game?
