Planet2 began as a university graduation project.
Here is a description as presented at the "Festival Arcadia" 2008 in Montreal.
Developing a 3D real-time strategy video game using open-source librarys
Planet2 is a game created by four software engineering students in collaboration with three artists from university and college level. The project's goal was to develop a game up to the stage of "first playable" with free librarys and then redistribute the result to the community to enable the project to flourish.
In a game, armies clash and must capture structures to enlarge their ranks or to obtain strategic advantages. Armies can be run by an artificial intelligence or by a human player, locally or by network.
