Savage

For those that have never heard of it, Savage is an online FPS / RTS available on Linux and Windows. Theres been a sequal to the popular first game with stunning graphics. The idea behind the game is a battle (usually between humans and beasts) in an RTS style. However, with just one commander each side, everyone else plays the parts of the ground troops. Sounds odd right? Trust me its fantastic!

The match will start with each commander asking his troops to mine areas and build structures. New structures can mean on respawning, troops can select new weapons, or even new unit types. Building, mining, and repairing buildings is all done by friendly players attacking what they are trying to build. Sounds a bit backwards bit in its simplicity, it works.

As for population of the game, theres almost always a good few hundred people to play against in Savage 1 still all the time. So even in Savage 1 you will always get a game.

Savage 1 is free, Savage 2 has a demo then costs about $20 for the full game. Both available here : http://www.s2games.com/savage/

Heres some screenies to wet your appetitie.
