FOSS Game Engines Edit

  • Spring Spring is a FOSS game engine used in 13 RTS games, both FOSS and proprietary. The 4 FOSS games are linked in their appropriate sections in this wikia page, the non FOSS games are not. Some of the proprietary games are actually free to download and play and can be acquired through the spring website.
  • Glest XML definitions. Every single unit, building, upgrade, faction, resource and all their properties and commands are defined in XML files. Standard C++. All the code is standard C++, and has been written with portability in mind, so it can be compiled using either GCC or VS.NET.
  • Terasology is a Java engine for building 3d games in a Minecraft environment.   While the project aims to create a NPC management game as the final result, the engine behind Terasology is already being used for create other games.
