Civilization: Call to Power 2 Source to Be Released (Maybe)

July 31st, 2003 by jvm

The Apolyton Civilization Site is reporting on this forum thread which indicates that the source code to Civilization: Call To Power 2 may be released at some point in the relatively near future. The original Civilization: Call to Power was the first game published by the now-defunct Loki Games in May 1999 (see our Loki Timeline for more details). The sequel in question was only published for the Windows platform.

Over at GameRankings it has a 73% average rating from the listed reviews. The user rating is in line with that number, at 7.4 out of 10.

If this source release happens, it could enable the spread of this game to previously unsupported platforms, like Linux, MacOS X, and any of the BSD family.

Regardless, we will always have Freeciv.

    I love it when they do this… I get a new Linux game, and it’s only $5 from the bargain bin.

    OK, CTP2 sucked, but new for me is new for me, and I’m sure it can provide a few sodas of enjoyment.

    I believe that before Loki died, that were developing the Linux port of Deus Ex, but it never left the early beta stage. It’d be great if the source to THAT unfinished port was released so that someone could finish it. Deus Ex was/is one hell of a good game.

    Why bitch about the games that DO go opensource? The more the merrier. We gotta start somewhere.

    Following the discussion on that thread, I discovered that, according to one of the developers posting on the thread that the Space code was completely gone (as in not there)- and that it’d take some substantive work to replace that missing layer of code.
