OpenWar is going to be a new open source 3D RTS (Real Time Strategy) Engine for the PC. Our goal is to create a strong, but flexible foundation that allows people to make their own RTS games with relative ease (through XML files and simple scripts). This means that many people of game-modding-skill-level will be able to build their own RTS.

We're also going to create a game on top of this engine. It will take place in a fantasy setting, for which our staff member Darvin has written quite a bit of storyline (it involves dwarves). Tell us everything that annoys you in current RTS games and we'll try to do it better.

At the moment we're working on a 2D top down RPG, to practice our skills and attract more people. This will be created as a standalone application using Java2D, seperated in three layers:
- a 2d game engine
- an rpg game engine (extending the 2d game engine)
- the game itself (xml files read by the rpg game engine)

If you're interested in helping or just watching from the sidelines, please go to our forum. Anybody is welcome to join and help  Smiley
