0 A.D

The independent freeware title 0 A.D was inspired by 1602 A.D.


There is a screensaver that will activate if you leave the game inactive for too long. It shows a beach with a hammock and the tide coming in. Also the sound of the tide is in the background. It was bug-pestered: the game would continue to run even when the screensaver was active - you would go to dinner, thinking everything was fine, coming back, moving the mouse and - getting the "game over" video. All in all, it really took some patches to make this game work properly. Being able to build on water was only one thing...
