Abandoned! There has been no work on this game for quite some time or it was left in an unfinished state.

FreeLords is a turn-based strategy game in the style of the classical Warlords. In short, you produce armies in cities and use them to conquer more cities and finally defeat the other players. We have already extended the game design at some points, e.g. by introducing hitpoints for the armies.

The game was started in 2000 by Michael Bartl using C++ and Qt. In 2007, we decided to do a Java port due to several serious restrictions (dependencies for example were a real pain).

The game is currently still in the development phase, so some features may not be implemented yet.
