CIL Cast Iron Life, a World at War
   Forum   |   Project Site   |  Alpha Scenario   |   CIL
Cast Iron Life is a simulation of the world during one of its most tumultuous periods, from 1850 to 1950. It's an open-source project, it may contain some 3D elements and, though it bears some resemblance to 4X games like Master of Orion and Civilization, it is primarily a wargame.
