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

You still need help?

Please write me an email(janniknickel.info@gmail.com) with the output_log.txt, which is in the AncientWarfare2_Data folder, attached to it. I really need the output log to help you with hardware or software compatibilities.

Can u put Ancient Wrfare 3 pls i want

 It crashes But good game tho


good geam am not joking i like i


lol 99% of people: "I CANT PLAY LET ME PLAY!" everyone else: "Wow great game!" somebody else : "This is a knock off of tabs."

honestly they were inspired to make a game if you cant play the game:
1. please stop caps/use a keyboard properly

2.tell them politely that something does not work

3.look up what is going wrong

and for the people who like the game: you are not doing anything wrong

but you knock off person: just stop if I could ban you from every single game in existence I would.









this wont work 




this is a spinoff of tabs


reeeeeeeeeee files break


Nice game 8/10

Right click, go to proprieties, permissions and check "allow to run as a program". It should work


i try cliking but nothing i even put it run as program

my os is linux mint 19 


I believe I have found as issue with this game on the Macintosh. You see, every time you play the game, as soon as somebody dies, it immediately crashes. Please tel me how to fix this problem or if it cannot be fixed, please fix this issue. Yes, I know you are working on Ancient Warfare 3, but it would really help people like mew don't want to buy the game. I enjoy this game and it being free and all, but this problem must be fixed for Macintosh users such as I. :)

Make sure that you extracted the zip file

  1. If you run the game directly in the zip file, it won't work correctly

I will try it
