Back in the day Warzone 2100 was one of the really fantastic Real Time Strategy games. It was overshadowed by Total Annihilation, and rightfully so, TA was a great game. Warzone 2100 was great in its own right though, and did a number of things really well, including being 3d with 3d units and allowing you to custom build your units from a very deep pool of elements. You could custom build units from various components – chasis, weapons platforms, propulsion systems and so on.
Unfortunately there’s never been a sequel, but the developers did release the source code a couple of years ago, and the result of that has been a community effort to keep the game alive. It’s today’s friday fun link – check out the sourceforge site for the game, and if you feel up to it, challenge me. I’ve got a very rainy weekend to look forward to and welcome the chance to beat upon someone.
