Shogun: The Way to Power is a fully 3D real time strategy game. Unlike many other real time strategy games, which use a isometric or birds-eye view, Shogun: The Way to Power uses a full 3D engine, which allows the player to zoom in and freely rotate the land.
In addition Shogun: The Way to Power supports a very versitile unit editor in adition to the campagn editor / map editor, which allows new units both through scripting and programming binaries through a a fully-featured API.
At the moment Shogun: The Way to Power is in it's planning stages, so there is plenty of opportunity to influence the design of this project. If you're interested in contributing, sign up to thewaytopower-developers mailing list and post a message to that effect. You will need a Sourceforge ID.
