The CivQuest team aims to produce a strategy game largely inspired by the Civilization genre. It will incorporate some unique ideas, and allow for play against A.I. opponents.
We work hard on CivQuest every day we can, and although we don't have anything playable to offer yet, development is speeding along nicely.
It is written in Java, so it runs on many platforms. The code is designed to be extensible and generic. For example, the game logic is completely seperated from the GUI layer, so in the future we hope to provide alternative GUIs for CivQuest that are compiled natively on platforms such as Linux.
