The aim of this project is to create a free (open source, OS independent) remake of the classic SSI game Imperialism. While the spirit and many concepts of the original should be preserved, it should not become a pure copy but advance the concept in a sense that modern elements of strategic games are included, e.g. of the Civilization series. The game is written in Java using Swing for the user interface. The philosophy is to keep it as simple as possible, use standard/well tested libraries wherever possible and to demand clean, understandable code.

We added a new development method to our inventory: ScrIMP. It is derived from Scrum, an agile software development method and especially adapted to open source projects with ever changing team members. With ScrIMP we offer the possibility to do a Sprint, i.e. to achieve a goal within 7 days (starting on fridays always). There is a place for volunteering, for progress reports and for reviewing. Of course this is completely optional. However we also hope to increase the attraction to new supporters.
