Well done, 0AD developers!

Recommended Posts

A friend recommended 0AD to me three says ago.  I've been dipping into it.

I'm pretty impressed.  I speak as a former senior dev on Battle For Wesnoth, so I have a better idea than most what's required to produce a game like this.  Some of you might recognize me for...other things.

Well done, everybody.  I partiicularly like the attention to historical detail; I can recognize authenticity in the costumes and architecture. This kind of collaboration - attracting more talent than any single proprietary shop can afford to hire - is one of the strengths of open source.  I'm expecting great things of the eventual 1.0 version.
