Welcome to Widelands.org
Widelands is a free, open source real-time strategy game with singleplayer campaigns and a multiplayer mode. The game was inspired by Settlers II™ (© Bluebyte) but has significantly more variety and depth to it. Still, it is easy to get started through playable tutorials.
This website is the home of the Widelands community. You are invited to visit the forums: discuss strategies, find partners for multiplayer games, help with translations, voice your opinion on graphics, music and much more.
Widelands is currently (and will always be) under development - you can get a feel for what is worked on by looking at the changelog. Everybody is invited to help out too - we need 2D and 3D artists, sound effect creators, composers, map makers, translators, test players, web programmers and C++ coders. All skill levels are welcome - just start working on something or ask in the forums for pointers.
For those wo are curious about what your current chieftain is up to outside of Widelands, I was recently interviewed by a language revitalization blog. Widelands received a central part in the presentation. You can read the blog at Conquering digital worlds in Scottish Gaelic.

Since the British English translation was causing a problems for Build 19, we have created a repack of the release. So, if you wish to play with British English, please visit our download page.
Everything else remains the same, so you won't have any issues with multiplayer games, and we decided not to change the version number.

In one month, provided at least 12 people sign up, a new tournament will start! More round! Bigger maps! One thousand elephants!
More informations here in the forums.
Since only 6 people signed up, there will be no tournament. I will propose a new one after summer.
