Gundam RTS is a free RTS game. It uses the Spring game engine and is currently in production. I make periodic releases and the game is very playable. It focuses on the one year war story which means no super mechs or effeminate boys. Just anime style humanoid robots shooting each other A LOT.

This has been the last thing I wanted to post here on moddb. After 7 years of passionate work, I will be stopping all development of gundam RTS. Please read on for more details, there is at least a good-bye.

Posted by Smoth on May 13th, 2012

Hello dearest fans, friends and longtime supporters,

It pains me greatly to make this post. Please be patient as this is a very difficult post for me.

The beginning

7 years ago, back in December 2005, I spent a week evaluating games and engines to find something suitable for a small fan project, a gundam RTS. At the time, fan projects often would die before getting to even a playable state. I felt that by making a truly complete fan project would make Bandai see that Americans do love gundam. I wanted to make moving, fighting fan art, something only a modder of my experience could do. So I started out, I made Gundam Annihilation for TA then came the spring engine, a chance to make a truly free Gundam game!

So I have worked and worked and worked for 6+ years. As I worked I noticed a change in the world. I am just moving with those changes.

What are you going to do now?

I'll take the game system I have worked on and do some independent IP project. With my own designs and characters. I will do this because it is my nature to make things. I have not decided on a name for said project just that I know it is an inevitability that I will do something. I am not going into details here as I have no decided what I will do.

I thank all of you for your support.

Sad to hear, at least you had a good run. I have a lot of fond memories playing GRTS and had fun making the few singleplayer levels that became available in the released version.

Good luck on whatever you do next, I'll try to keep a look out for it.

Kinda wish you kept the download up for those that never played this game, but other than that, this is sad news. I look forward to seeing what your new project is, though.
