0 A.D. is a free, open-source, cross-platform real-time strategy (RTS) game of ancient warfare. It's a historically-based war/economy game that allows players to relive or rewrite the history of twelve ancient civilizations, from Iberia to Mauryan India, each depicted at their peak of economic growth and military prowess. Developed using Pyrogenesis, a ground-breaking new game engine custom-built to suit this project, 0 A.D. will give players a rich and entertaining real-time gaming experience.

Thanks! We feel it's a well-deserved vote of confidence in our endeavor, and we think it helps promote sharing ideas, learning how to develop games and appreciating ancient history. This couldn't have happened without a lot of hard work from our team members and the firm support of our fanbase, and we'd like to thank you all with a big, collective sloppy kiss.

We thought this could be a good occasion to tell everyone a little bit about what we've been doing recently. Consider it an official "state of the game" address. Read the rest on our website.
