MegaGlest is a free and open source 3D real-time strategy (RTS) game,
where you control the armies of one of seven different factions: Tech,
Magic, Egyptians, Indians, Norsemen, Persian or Romans. The game is
setup in one of 16 naturally looking settings, which -like the unit
models- are crafted with great appreciation for detail. Additional game
data can be downloaded from within the game at no cost.
Gameplay A game of MegaGlest takes place on a map of varying size, such as large plains and fields, with terrain features like rivers, mountains, seas, or cliffs. Players must establish settlements to gain resources, defend against other players, and train units to explore the map and attack enemies. Different resources have to be gathered by everyfaction. This can be energy, food, gold, housing, stone and wood. Choose a faction and create its different units and buildings while developing your factions' unique abilities over the course of the game. But beware: strategy matters, so chose wisely when deciding which units to use when and where if you want a chance to beat the enemy.
Supported platforms While the game is officially supported on Linux and Windows, community contributed builds exist for Mac OS X and FreeBSD. Up to eight players fight in multi-player games (over Internet or LAN) across all supported platforms and against the various difficulty levels of AI players.
