Hey guys this is really just for you guys to post some of those opensource games that deserve some of the limelight from the big devs.
Just to start things off really I stumbled across Zero-K, an RTS very much like Total annihilation (including commanders, spiders, nukes, Big burthas). What surprises me really is that the community is rather small (think about 100-200 people) But the game is SOOOOOOO fun!
The community members themselves are a good laugh they are always willing to have a chat with you and help you out, especially as in your game you will mostly have spectators just interested in watching, giving tips and hints to you about what to build and where.
Despite the community being so small the game feels really REALLY well developed. With tactics coming into play really heavily, especially when it comes to 6v6 + games. Besides, its free? What have you got to loose? (And it even runs on linux!)
