Gallipoli: The Game

News: 

I've received news about a new Australian game called "Gallipoli: The Game"...

Gallipoli: The Game is a stunning recreation of Australia's greatest military adventure. As a commander in the Great War (WWI), you take on the role of leading the prime of Australia's armed forces as they launch an all-out assault on the Central Powers (the Germans, Austrians and the Ottomans). Gameplay is similar to the hit PC game, Lemmings, except, instead of trying to save your soldiers, your mission, as an authentic WWI commander, is to wipe out as many diggers as possible ... the more gruesome the better!

Gallipoli: The Game is available for as a free download at the following link!

    pfft indeed.
    I'm trying to compile for win32 as we speak, but as usual with one-person OpenSource projects, there are more dependencies that you'd ever hope to see, and only half the story is documented...

    1) requires clanLib 0.6 (not 0.7 - coder hasn't told anyone about this)
    2) requires libxml (coder hasn't told anyone about this)
    3) requires SDL (yay! this one works!)

    And finally, the source package still has all the READMEs etc from pingus (http://pingus.seul.org/),

    I wonder now if someone is simply trying to get slashdotted. :)
