MegaGlest is fully free, that is both in freedom and in price. There are no 'free-to-play' restrictions, no ads, no catches at all. We have a non-business model: Let's all enjoy ourselves by having a fun time making and playing this game. To make this work, you can easily contribute to and take part in MegaGlest:

If DIY is not for you, but you like the spirit and would still like to support us, you are welcome to donate:



During the game, each player picks one of seven factions (Magic, Tech, Indian, Persian, Norsemen, Egyptians, Romans), makes workers harvest resources and build a settlement, explores new technologies and conquers one of more than 50 maps.

For new players, three tutorials provide a solid introduction to this colorful and atmospheric game, which, besides background music, ambient sounds and sound effects also comes with weather and daytime effects.

MegaGlest provides support for up to eight networked (Internet or LAN) or AI controlled players. Internet games can be published and tracked on a master server. Additional game mods can be installed for free from an in-game menu. The game is available in English and currently eight other languages. Advanced players can extend the game using a map and model editor, and can add maps, tilesets, scenarios, tutorials and factions.
