Plasma EBG is an empire building game with an isometric view. It runs in multiple resolutions with graphics being displayed better for higher resolutions; hence, lower resolutions do not suffer from being too large, etc. In the future several viewing engines will be available, such as EBG-opengl and EBG-2d. There is a separate module called EBG-dev which features the latest AI-development, as well as a separate server module.
Re: a contructive complaint? ;)
It seems that our binaries have become quite outdated during the (Australian) summer.
I appologize for the inconvenience caused from this.
I plan to rebuild binaries for both libpng 1.0.12 and the new and improved libpng 1.2.1. Also the allegro library has had an update - so this shall also be included.
Large delays in updates have been caused by plasma.worldgroup.net.au being down throughout January and February (2002).

Re: Licensing question...
This is a good point.. and I am sorry for
putting up a license on the website for these
releases. I will remedy this soon.
But FYI (and others):
Until the game is playable we do not expect to
release source code to the general public. (Trying
to keep the foundations of this project within
Plasma). [I know some people might debate this
However, we do want to open up devopment in the
not so distant future. The binaries can be
distributed 'as-you-wish', however the source code
itself is under a "plasma private license". So
'Freely distributable' seems to fit the binary
releases... [I didn't notice a more appropriate
