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.

Okay so, this was fantastic, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself for about an hour.
I got a friend to install the game after telling him how awesome it was playing on the game of thrones map, we decided we wanted to play together and then we went to host a game. Here's where you completely ruined your game - you have to PAY, with REAL MONEY, to host a game of this, being that with these types of strategy game finding players is hard enough, you've built a wall that stops players from creating games altogether! I was sorely disappointed, in the game, in the poor marketing decision.

Altogether the game is a definite 9/10 on gameplay, the customisable maps and unit types that people can add in to remake scenarios is brilliant, I love it, I love the game, I love the chat systems, I love the battles.
I just hate the fact you want people to buy a "game option package" to host a game. In my eyes this has completely destroyed my view of the overall product. Poor producers often destroy a product. Take a look at War Z and how sergei titov completely ruined a game that had potential by overhyping it and promising deadlines he couldn't keep. He even ended up writing an apology letter about it.

Yes, this looks great! Too bad its multiplayer only! Just don't have the time to play these kinds of games.

You should probably try the casual game method then. You have 12 or 24 hours to take your turn, much more suited to people with not much time on their hands but still feel the need to go all Genghis Khan on someone else

It looks fantastic, and it's free.
This is what a real indie game is.
A group of off-handed developers making a game in their spare time that they want to play and enjoy doing it, thus making a polished final result.
I have to say this is one of the better things I've seen on Desura, by far in my top 10, possibly around number 6 or 7. Usually I don't get this excited about trying out an indie game, let alone one on Desura (which has let me down far too many times) I'm glad that I didn't choose to abandon Desura, little gems like this are the reason I continue to browse the craptent (content) on this bloody thing. I hope this lives up to expectations.
I will add you to my watch list to wait for future releases, paid or free, if they're anywhere near the same quality as this, I wouldn't be averted to paying for your next game. :)

The game is all in all pretty good. But the one thing that is utter bullcrap is the fact that you cant make a private game without buying some bloody subscription pack.

a good idea to not be disturbed is going to the casual games and open your game because usually there is only 1 or 2 people there, so nobody will disturb you ;)

Hopefully its not too much of a problem... If you ask people nicely to not join your game that is an easy solution.

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…
