Globulation 2 is a real-time strategy game, available in beta as of January 2009 and a final version is due to be released in the future. The game minimizes gaming micromanagement by automatically assigning tasks to units.
The game can be played by a single player, through a local area network (LAN), or through the Internet via Ysagoon Online Game (YOG), a meta-server. It also features AI for playing with computer teams, a scripting language for versatile gameplay or tutorials and an integrated map editor.
Globulation 2 is a multi-platform (Linux distributions, BSD Unix, GNU Hurd, Apple Mac OS, Microsoft Windows, etc.) free software package (released under the GNU General Public License version 3), included in several major free operating system distributions such as Debian and Ubuntu and is rated 5 stars (out of 5) on Linux Game Tome. In Globulation, the point is to either kill all of the enemies' units, to convert all of them to your side, or to kill the enemy by stealing their resources.
