Trevor Chan's empire building real-time strategy game Seven Kingdoms is updated and re-released as a stand alone product. Once again play as one of seven kingdoms as you vie for world domination. Compete on various terrain types including the new snow terrain. Control new kingdoms as Zulus, Indians or Egyptians with new deities.
Single player modes includes campaign with customizable options where you select your own goals, difficulty level, how many computer controlled kingdoms to play against etc. Also play pre-built scenarios and random map generated scenarios. Play with friends online with up to seven players in multiplayer on the internet, LAN or modem.
In 2009 Trevor Chan and Enlight Software released the source code of the game, including all game data files with the exception of the soundtrack, under the GNU General Public License. A community development project was launched in late August 2009 at 7kfans.com, aimed at increasing compatibility with modern systems, improving network play, fixing bugs and eventually porting Seven Kingdoms to other platforms. Since then, the 7kfans.com community has released several updated versions of the game for Windows and Linux.
In December 2011, Bjorn Lynne, who wrote the original soundtrack, allowed its use with the open source version of the game, albeit not under the GNU GPL license.
