atWar, formerly Afterwind, is a free-2-play online multiplayer turn-based strategy game (Silverlight). In the best traditions of Risk and Axis & Allies, you play against other people to fight for world domination. Features free unit movement - no grids or predetermined paths. Up to 20 players in a game, simultaneous turns. Another feature is the Map Editor allowing players to create their own maps and units, giving you the chance to re-enact any battle real or imagined. If you get disconnection problems with the Desura file right after you load the game then you should disable the firewall or add a firewall exception rule... or just go to our website and play in your browser there.

atWar can now be played on Linux!

Now everyone can enjoy atWar thanks to Pipelight, which allows Windows applications (including Silverlight). For more information you can go to Pipelight. This has been tested on arch Linux, you still have to use an user agent switcher, because otherwise the game does not load. Thanks to the atWar member Parakooper for finding this out.

Linux support via Wine based plugin? No thanks, port it properly. You dont deserve any money for such type of "support".

To be honest, I don't think they ever expected Linux users to be able to play it. This is just icing on the cake I guess, I definitely wouldn't call it a port.
