Widelands is an open source strategy game, available on Linux without wine or other emulators. At first, you are the regent of a small clan. You develop your headquaters, get resources: wood, food, iron gold and more and compete with other clans.

Widelands offers a unique style of play. For example, a system of roads plays a central role in your economy: all the goods that are harvested and processed by the tribe must be transported from one building to the next. This is done by carriers, and those carriers always walk along the roads. It is your job to lay out the roads as efficiently as possible.
