Curse of War
A fast-paced action strategy game for GNU/Linux

Curse of War is a fast-paced action strategy game for GNU/Linux implemented using C and ncurses. Since version 1.2.0, there is also an SDL version.

Unlike most RTS, you are not controlling units, but focus on high-level strategic planning: Building infrastructure, securing resources, and moving your armies.

The core game mechanics turns out to be quite close to WWI-WWII type of warfare, however, there is no explicit reference to any historical period.
