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.

It's funny to me. If you look at the reviewers profiles that give this game a 10 rating. A ton of them are void of any activity or time online, except to come rate this game a 10. Makes a guy wonder, ya know?

Well you should probably see for yourself. It isn't that surprising since atWar has hundreds of loyal members, some of which have been playing the games for years.

I was trying out the Tutorial, and I found I could not acquire Singapore as a starting country. Bummer.

Ok... I got it to work. But I think you may consider some minor tweaks for the Tutorial text or selection of Singapore.

I was wondering if you would share how you store the regions in game. Just a general explanation.

we store images, paths (the country outlines) and data base entries (cities, units, income)... You can see for yourself using our Map Editor. Create your own map and learn how it works!

I tried many in-browser games, and this game really just takes the lead in the games I tried, there isn’t more than around 100.000 players active, so it’s pretty easy to get friends and chatting in room and in all other lobbies. The gameplay is nice and easy to learn, but like in all free2play games there is something they could have done better. In the game you mostly see a lot of games and cause of the new update you are able to play from the middle-age and all the way to the future. In AtWar…
