About

Wyrmsun is an open-source real-time strategy game which features elements of mythology, history and fiction.

In the Wyrmsun universe a myriad of inhabited planets exist. Humans dwell on Earth, while dwarves inhabit Nidavellir and elves nourish the world of Alfheim. These peoples struggle to carve a place for themselves with their tools of stone, bronze and iron. And perhaps one day they will meet one another, beyond the stars...

Features:
  • Retro-style graphics
  • 3 playable civilizations
  • Story-based scenarios, playable on a huge map
  • Dozens of units, buildings and technologies
  • Personal names and traits for units, being generated from several historical and fictional languages
  • Units can earn experience, being able to upgrade to new unit types or acquire new abilities upon level-up
  • Persistent heroes, who carry over their level, abilities and items throughout scenarios
  • Possibility to create your own custom persistent heroes
  • Normal, magic-enchanted and unique items drop from enemies
  • Very moddable game, with a built-in mod editor and Steam Workshop integration
  • In-game encyclopedia, allowing players to learn more about the units, buildings and other elements of the game, as well as their historical and mythological sources of inspiration
  • No microtransactions

Wyrmsun receives constant patches, frequently providing you with new content and features!

Note: Multiplayer uses a peer-to-peer connection, so that you may need to tweak your firewall settings or port-forward to make use of the feature. See the Wyrmsun Q&A for instructions on how to port-forward.

Wyrmsun reviews and comments

It's great, the Game. Just everything seems to fit. When one is mean, one simply says that this Is a remormitted WarCraft II with many many NEW Features that make the Feeling of playing much better. So there are now renewable Trees, leveling Units, a Skillbaum within the Story Mode in which you can decide for yourself what you want to specialize in. By the Way, the own Units also have their own Characteristics, which of course makes each individual Warrior unique, so to speak. By the Way, there is Modsupport and a Game mode called the "Grand Strategy Game," which once again cramps the whole Game. -Unfortunately, here is missing a Tutorial that brings you a little closer to this Game Mode. Moreover, for inexplicable Reasons, everything jerks like Monkey ass Here. But If there is anything to be left out of this, it is only the Degree of Difficulty. Sure, the Game is extremely designed for Hotkeys. But so you DON't make RTS Newcomers very tasty, even if you were probably trying to incorporate a nice Learning Curve. Other small Criticisms: The Game does not always store properly and/or it simply does not leave the Score neat. The Steam Overlay is completely missing here. If you want to write here with someone on the side, you have to get out of it first. Although I end up with more Criticism than open Benefits, I can simply recommend the Game from the bottom of My heart. Still unsure whether to buy it? Here's the Game for free: http://www.indiedb.com/games/wyrmsun

[temporary evaluation posted] This game is not a simple clone of famous RTS of the years 90, it is not a free "mini games" that swarm on steam to suspicious content.. nor an anonymous project developed to tear it in a corner of garage but indeed the fruit of a long work of several decades on a line of open-source engines, resumed and improved constantly, by fans ' crazy ' of the aesthetics and concept of games of the the kind that inspire them (notably Warcraft II). It is therefore the result of an honest and scupulous work, not on the part of salaried developers, but of players for other players and who think like players. It is also the epic of a great history of free software and Linux which nowadays finds, after sometimes turbulent episodes, an elegant conclusion in this project, the last born, Wyrmsun. An RTS that smells aesthetically good the years 95 but with more modern gameplay features and a zest of little Follies that an active community continually enriched. The initiative is beautiful, everyone can participate in the development, the result is as interesting as the game experience, a particular universe that is its own.. In short, a small must to become for those looking for an alternative to full 3D strategy games and/or to adults who rocked their childhood with "Yes master!".. ^^ All that remains is to make it known since this is how the universe of Wyrmsun will develop (DLCs). It is free, let you convince.. :) Technical notes: compatible even in Windows XP. An en translation is planned in the long term (it exists but partially, for the time being do not count too much even if it is easy to achieve it either-even by modifying the file concerned).
