Widelands is a free slow-paced real-time strategy video game under the GNU General Public License. Widelands takes many ideas from and is quite similar to The Settlers and The Settlers II. It is still an in-development game, with improvement still required in graphics and bug fixing. The game runs on various operating systems such as AmigaOS 4, Linux, BSD, Mac OS X, and Windows.
Widelands has single-player, network and internet multiplayer modes, single player campaign missions and an internationalization system with translations for Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Finnish, French, German, Scottish Gaelic, Hungarian, Bulgarian, Danish, Catalan, Czech, Dutch, Italian. Players may select one of three different tribes – the human-like “Empire,” the “Barbarians” and the “Atlanteans.”
The game presents four original tutorials and three tutorial campaigns. Advanced players can create their maps with the added map editor. It is also possible to imply and play original Settlers II maps.
