FreeCol is a turn-based strategy game based on the old game Colonization, and similar to Civilization. The objective of the game is to create an independent nation. You start with only a few colonists defying the stormy seas in their search for new land. Will you guide them on the Colonization of a New World?

The big moment has arrived guys! After all these years FreeCol has just delivered it's big version 1.0.0 release!

Here's what lead dev Stian had to say about it:
"On this very day, 20 years ago, we made the first public release of FreeCol. Our releases have until now been marked as alpha/beta even though the number of downloads for our game has long been counted in the millions. We are extremely proud to finally announce FreeCol 1.0.0!"

If you've never seen or played FreeCol then a year ago I released a HD video tour of the game showing off most of it's coolest features. Many changes have been made since and the latest game actually looks and feels quite a bit different now due to all the new music, animating oceans, new terrain, and GUI!

Looks very cool, but not something I'd get into.

Still, it looks good.
