Pax Britannica

Only ten months after promising that they were “coming soon”, the gentlemen of No Fun Games (Kira, Renaud and myself) have finally finished porting our one-button real-time strategy game Pax Britannica to OSX and Linux. You can check them out at our fancy new website, or download them directly here:

Unfortunately, the OSX version of the game is currently lacking gamepad support due to a platform-specific issue with GLFW. We’ll be sure to release an updated version of the game if that’s ever patched!

I’m tremendously grateful for all the positive feedback we’ve received about Pax Britannica. In particular, this video review by Joe Larson and his son Andrew reminded me why I started making video games in the first place. (UPDATE: The video is no longer available.)

    Is there a way to play the Windows version in a window (not fullscreen)?

    Great game! Thanks

    To run the game windowed, you have to pass a command line argument to the executable. Run the following command (substituting appropriate file path): “C:\PATH\TO\Pax Britannica.exe” –windowed. That’s two dashes before windowed, WordPress is replacing them in this comment for some silly reason.

    I know this is kind of late, but Malini sent this to me a while ago, and I think it’s just great! Go, Gangles, go! Keep up the good work (how very teachery of me…)
