Rainbow's End is an empire building strategy game played by electronic mail. Begin with a single settlement on an unknown world and send out pioneers to explore new territory, build cities and expand your domain. Other players will have the same idea, and you'll need to recruit soldiers and build armored vehicles to defeat your enemies in battle and claim the land for your own.
The first playtest game has finished, and version 2 of the game is planned based on the feedback from it. The second playtest game will be run as soon as version 2 is ready. (Due to pressure of other work, unfortunately there is currently no schedule for this.)
For details of how to play, please see the rules.
The program is available for download here (Windows binary and C++ source code included). You don't need it to play - turn reports are in plain text - but it has a hex map display facility and you can also use it to run your own games of Rainbow's End if you wish.
This program, together with game rules and other documents, is in the public domain.
