MegaGlest 3.5.2 Linux 64 Bit Installer - 199.42 MB
MegaGlest is an open source 3D-real-time strategy 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 14 naturally looking settings, which are crafted with great appreciation for detail. Additional game data can be downloaded from within the game at no cost.
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 every faction. 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. Strategy matters though, so chose wisely when deciding which units to use if you want a chance to win.
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.
MegaGlest is heavily based on the widely known Glest, which it forked from in early 2010. Like its predecessor, MegaGlest is available under liberal licensing terms and can be downloaded free of charge.
A few days ago, we released MegaGlest 3.7.0, the latest (and obviously greatest) version of MegaGlest, a real-time strategy game which is fully free (no restrictions, no ads, no crap) and open source. You can play MegaGlest against challenging A.I. opponents or with or against up to eight (human) players online. All of Linux, Windows, OS X are supported.
