Wildfire Games is an independent free software video game developer, originally founded as a modding team in 2001. The logo is the Chinese character "" (fire). Wildfire Games is developing two games of the real-time strategy genre. In addition to game development, Wildfire Games has developed the Pyrogenesis game engine[1][2] used in 0 A.D. and separate mods.


Wildfire Games began as a game modding studio for Age of Empires II. An idea for a mod, 0 A.D., became an independent game due to the limitations of Age of Empires.
