Pyrogenesis is the nickname given to the custom built engine developed for 0 A.D. Featuring an enriched 3D environment, a particle system, OGL graphics and 32-bit color, it not only provides a powerful environment, but allows the game to have very minimal system requirements, which will be available for Windows, Macintosh and Linux. To cater to our Linux crowd, we've opted to use the OpenGL API rather than DirectX, which not only functions just as proficiently, but it's already bundled in your video card drivers, so there's no need to worry about downloading the right version to run 0 A.D.
0 A.D. is a new real-time strategy currently undergoing development by Wildfire Games. Featuring 6 unique civilizations, each ideally depicted in their peak of economic and military prowess historically. Featuring a ground-breaking new game engine custom-built to suit our environment, 0 A.D. strives to preserve historical accuracy combined with engaging gameplay.
