A Strategy Game in Linux Environment, 0 AD (zero-ey-Dee)

If you are fond of strategy game, 0 A.D. (zero-ey-dee) is one of the best game, which is available in Linux (also in Windows and Mac). It is a free, open-source, historical Real Time Strategy (RTS) game.

The game winning secrets resembles with the “age of empire 2,” i.e., build more and more modern weapons and attack as soon as possible. Defensive strategy hardly works.

However, currently it is available only in alpha version, by Wildfire Games. Even though it is in alpha phase. I have tested and it is working well in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS except the movement became very slow in some missions.

0 AD provides a platform not only for playing game, but also we can build a scenario and map ourselves. Here are some print-screens.
