Warzone 2100 Resurrection was an innovative 3D real-time strategy game back in 1999. The game’s source code was released later in 2004, under a GPL license. Soon after that, the Warzone 2100 ReDev project was formed with the goal to make warzone run on all possible platforms. The original code of all proprietary technologies were stripped and replaced with cross-platform and free equivalents, like OpenGL, OpenAL, etc. Right now, Warzone 2100 works very well on Windows and GNU/Linux and BSD.

In Warzone 2100 you command the forces of “The Project” in a battle to rebuild the world after mankind has almost been destroyed by nuclear missiles. The game offers campaign, tutorial, multi-player and single-player skirmish modes. An extensive tech tree with over 400 different technologies, combined with the unit design system, allows for a wide variety of possible units and tactics. Warzone 2100 was created by Pumpkin Studios, published by Eidos Interactive and is currently developed by the Warzone 2100 Resurrection Project.
