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 is developed as free and open source software under the GNU General Public License version 3.
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. 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.
