The Widelands Development Team is proud to announce the immediate availability of the release candidate for build-11 of Widelands. Widelands is a Free, cross-platform strategy game in which players control the fate of a small tribe that can grow into a big empire, in a style of play that is unique in the open source world, and will remind players of Settlers II by !BlueByte. More information is available on AboutWidelands.

Widelands uses SDL as graphics and input library and is currently available for Linux/x86, Windows (32-bit) and in source code. Both binary and source packages are available at the Download section or directly from the Sourceforge-mirrors

Simply download the binary package for your operating system and run the widelands executable! If your operating system is not supported, download a source package and try to compile it for yourself. See the homepage for the libraries you need to have installed.
