OpenHV is a free stand-alone RTS by OpenHV developers. It was built on OpenRA engine, but that engine is included in the project, so everything you need is in one installer.

Description (in authors’ own words)

In 1993 somewhere after Dune II before Warcraft or Command & Conquer Daniel Cook was pixeling art for an unreleased real-time strategy game called Hard Vacuum. It was never finished and therefore he released a rough game concept and all the sprites in 2005 to the internet. They have been available for over 15 years and prominently used in game development tutorials and can even be found on commercial titles due to their permissive licensing.

So open content sprites, but a missing game engine. Conveniently enough OpenRA, a reimagination of classic Westwood Studios real-time strategy games, exists, and it puts a lot of emphasis on making own mods. Recently file format support for the web standard .png was introduced, so there was no need to convert data into obscure 90s proprietary formats. We used tools like GrafX2, GIMP and Aseprite to convert and edit the sprites.

What started as a Christmas project quickly grew because the asset pack was surprisingly complete. One large tileset allows for crafting nice maps. The number of vehicles made us split them in half and design two factions.

The art style from the artists behind classics like Tyrian is certainly interesting to work with. Dzierzan joined the team and pixeled sometimes voxeled what we felt was missing. We also harvested from Iron Plague which has a matching art style.

Graion Dilach (a C&C modding veteran) also got attracted. He contributed details to the artwork and gameplay elements from known working recipes developed over the years.

The original design documents of Hard Vacuum were not available and only loosely summarized in the original blog post so we took matters in our own hands. This game certainly took a lot of inspiration from Command & Conquer, Starcraft, Grey Goo, KKND and Dune, but mixes things up a bit so it should have been a smash hit when released in the mid 90s.
