A new RTS game is coming to Linux, Mac and Windows called Tryst. It looks very much like Starcraft 2 (The UI is very similair looking in colour and style). Powered by the Unigine engine (Same engine as Oil Rush) and developed by BlueGiant Interactive.

[url=http://clintbellanger.net/rpg/]FLARE[/url] the open source RPG Game/Engine has reached a new milestone 0.16 RC1.
