Freeciv is an open-source, multiplayer, and absolutely free empire-building TBS game where players grow leaders of different civilizations. The gameplay is very alike to one of the Civilizations I & II games.
Being massively motivated by the history of individual civilization, the Freeciv game begins in prehistory. The player’s purpose is to start a tribe made from as many people as possible from the Stone Age to the Space Age.
