Freewar is a video game I spent quite some time on. I was repeatedly drawn back to further explore that world and its stories. Looking at the games I worked on, I don’t find as much stuff to explore. This is an area I want to develop further. Since I already have a concrete example of the direction I am aiming for, it seems reasonable to start with building on that, remaking Freewar, and adjust it to my preferences.
Freewar is a multiplayer online game, but I don’t expect to implement such functionality for my little experiment. Synchronization of game state between many players would probably require too much effort for now. What I want to maintain is the visual diversity of the game world. With today’s technology, I think it will be easy enough to present it in a more lively way.
For the foreseeable future, I will publish the game at https://distilledgames.itch.io/freemake
