Boson is a real-time strategy game (RTS) similar to Command & Conquer and StarCraft. It features an advanced graphics core with shader-powered ground and water rendering, reflections, waves in the water, smooth fog of war transitions, night and day lighting effects, and explosive particle effects.
The game is coded with the OpenGL Library and KDE, and is packaged with DebHelper. It consists of three source packages, one with the code of the game, another one with the game data that is required for the game, and the last one with optional music for the game. These source packages generate 4 binary packages:
- boson - an OpenGL wargame for KDE
- boson-base - core package for Boson
- boson-data - Datas for Boson
- boson-music - Music Pack for Boson
