Strategy » 0 A.D.

0 A.D. is a free real time strategy game with an open source. Its development started in 2001 with it being a mod of Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings, put its developers realized that what they had in their hands had the potential of being its own, independent game.

In this way, in 2003 the team refocused their project and called it 0 A.D. – what we have in our hands now. It's an independent game with it's own engine (Pyrogenesis) that took more than a decade to develop following the alpha phase. Although, it wasn't really given the name alpha, 0 A.D. is as good of a game as many of the other commercial franchises.
