Another crowdfunding campaign: 0 A. D., a FOSS strategy game

I’ve often said that I would be perfectly willing to buy computer software if I knew I’d get the source code. Lots of people think there is a dichotomy between commercial software and free/open source, that free (as in freedom) software is necessarily also free (as in price). I think that dichotomy is a false one. Now I’m putting my money where my mouth is.

In addition to being a paying member of the Free Software Foundation and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which I’ve been doing for some time, now I’ve contributed money to a FOSS game, 0 A.D. They set up an Indiegogo campaign here.

0 A. D. is a real-time strategy game in the style of Age of Empires. It works on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, and (being free) will probably get ported to other operating systems too.
