FreeCol is an easy to play, fun turn-based strategy game based on the old game Colonization, and similar to Civilization. The main objective of the game is to create an independent nation.

You start with a few colonists defying the stormy seas in their search for new land. Will you be able to guide the colonists on the Colonization of a New World?

Certain new 'features' will be implemented but the gameplay and the rules will be exactly the same as the original game. Examples of modern features are: an isometric map and multiplayer support.

What's New in This Release:
  • This release is mainly an opportunity for the developers to fix some difficult structural problems that were blocking progress. That said, there are many useful new user visible features, listed in the release notes. And lots of bugs were fixed.
  • In particular, we had an intractable cluster of bugs that could not be fixed without making an incompatible change to the saved game format and dropping the 0.9.x compatibility code. Therefore, this is 0.11.0, not 0.10.8, and 0.9.x games will no longer load correctly. The hope is that this is the last save-format break before 1.0.
  • Given the large changes and long gap since the last release, the next release is likely to be a maintenance/bugfix release to tidy up problems that were missed in testing. More people testing the git/trunk would be most welcome.
