Free Empires is a free software (GPL 3) historical real time strategy game based on Ensembles Studios and Microsoft's: Age of Empires (AoE) and Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings (AoK). The project aims towards GNU/Linux and other Unix-like systems compatibility. We are currently working on the engine we will be using in a separate project but are also still envisioning the design for the first in our proposed series: Chiefs and Warriors which takes place in Paleolithic Europe focusing on the Neanderthal people. This project is a Piga Software project and it is the organization that develops and provides support for the Free Empires project.
The Free Empires website has now moved to our new Piga host at icculus.org!
