Free to Play – Evolution RTS available on Steam for Linux and Windows PC

 

The Evolution RTS free open source game is now available on Steam for linux due to the large number of votes it received by the community on Steam Greenlight.

This #strategy playing #game has been in #development for over 5 years and it continuously receives updates that make it better and offer a great game experience to the player.

“The gameplay is designed around the use of unit groups, and the mixture of your unit group often will determine how successful you are in battle, as opposed to churning out hundreds of the same unit continually.”, reads the article on the game’s blog.

But Evolution RTS is not a simcity game, the simple economy and teching system allow you to focus more on crushing your enemy than taking care of your building strategies. It also offers many amazing features such as realistic physics, epic and macro scales,fine tuning controls for builders, simple economy, intelligent unit targeting AI, mini-map orders, completely customizable gui and many others that you will discover and enjoy by yourself while playing the game.

A game with realistic physic effects, it is always nice to see and play games which use a realistic physics system which allow for unprecedented control and gameplay.

What makes this game special is its design that makes it fit to all kinds of players and gamers with all different skill levels.

The game is available for free and it will always be free, but are you guys curious to know how much does the project for the Evolution RTS game cost?

It costs $3.11 million according to Ohloh which is a service does some fairly deep analysis to the codebase and the committers who contribute to it. The results of the Ohloh service are not always super accurate but three million dollars are nothing when compared with the high quality games such as Evolution RTS and besides that 223K lines of code can not be written in only one day.

I would like to donate to this project, but I can not afford it at the moment. If you guys like to play games and want to support the developers of this game feel free to do so by donating a couple of bucks to them via paypal.

Note: You are pressured in any way to donate,if you feel doing so than do it.
