What this page is about

It looks like Wesnoth is a major reason that several Linux projects are improving only slowly. We sincerely apologize to all the developers on Debian and elsewhere out there who have ceased being productive because our game has eaten their brains. Here is the dreadful proof...

Wesnoth appears in several blogs

  • If you want to stay productive don't ever run the following command:

  • Do not under any circumstances apt-get install wesnoth! It’s quite addictive and very good. Currently worried about getting anything done for the next… errrr… year?

  • Stable, beautiful (graphics, sounds and music), neither too easy nor too hard, cool story and characters, usable interface, great tutorial... This is one of the best games I've ever played.

  • found the game in the net: played it for hours (and still playing it). showed it to my kids: they still play and always want the newest version (they know most units stats... like they knew all the pokemons). showed it to my friends: lots of ’em like and play it (the ’over 30’ fraction). kids showed it to their friends: guess what happend... (the ’under 15’ fraction).

  • It's been fantastic watching this come together. Talented programmers, artists, musicians, campaign/story developers - Wesnoth is a really special example of how open source can accomplish great things. Thanks to Dave and all the others who have worked hard to create this game!

  • This is a pretty neat game esp. from the fact its so customizable. It's kindof an advanced
