Welcome to this open source project to recreate and improve this classic strategy game!
The project has already been started in november 2011 with a google code page. Since then work has been done on designing the game, i.e. writing down the rules of the old Imperialism and discussing flaws from the old version and how to overcome them.
However the ultimate goal is to build a community that gives input to the project. To get the publicity I setup this CMS (flatpress) which is lightweight but fully functional which is very much the same I want to achieve for this project. And as the central meeting place for the community I also added a forum. Everybody is welcome to join and discuss the remake there.
