A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Ancient Warfare is a low poly third/first person game.

You take control of a small blue unit and fight against the large red empire or you can watch battles of blue vs. red!

You can use different melee weapons and shields to kill your enemies and cut them into pieces.

Create custom battles with the new custom battle editor, choose terrain, conditions, place enemy and allied troops and get ready for heavy battles!

And if you don't want to prepare a battle, let the game create a battle for you!

Play conquest, king of the hill, siege a castle/towers to kill a king or play level bundles.
Much more content and features are on the way!

You have problems with the game, like crashes or graphical issues?

No problem, here is a small checklist to fix your problems:

  1. Make sure that you extracted the zip file
    1. If you run the game directly in the zip file, it won't work correctly
  2. Make sure that you operating system is supporting the game
    1. You need at least: Windows XP SP2+, Mac OS X 10.8+ or Ubuntu 12.04+
  3. Make sure that your graphic card is supported
    1. Requirements: DX9 (shader model 3.0) or DX11 with feature level 9.3 capabilities.
    2. If you are unsure about that, you can write me an email with your graphic card model and I will check the compatibility for your.
  4. Make sure that you have installed a valid version of direct x on your computer.
  5. Make sure that your graphic driver is up to date
