0 A.D. is a free, open-source, cross-platform real-time strategy (RTS) game of ancient warfare. It's a historically-based war/economy game that allows players to relive or rewrite the history of six ancient Western civilizations, from Iberia to Persia, each depicted at their peak of economic growth and military prowess. Developed using Pyrogenesis, a ground-breaking new game engine custom-built to suit this project, 0 A.D. will give players a rich and entertaining real-time gaming experience.
Mac OS X users now have an easy way to keep up-to-date with 0 A.D. news and forum updates with the release of the 0 A.D. Widget! The application features a simple, user-friendly interface and dual-RSS feed support, displaying both new forum posts (listed as topics) and all news updates posted to the 0 A.D. homepage. The widget displays the 4 most recent news posts and the 12 most recent forum posts in public access forums.
