I'm a big fan of open clones of some of my old time favorite games like OpenTTD (I don't know how many hours I "invested" in Transportation Tycoon Deluxe...lol) and FreeCiv. Yet while they're open source, they really didn't fit to well here (where I try to focus more on managed language based projects).
Then I caught wind of another open clone project, but this one using C#...
OpenRA is a Libre/Free Real Time Strategy game engine supporting early Westwood games like Command & Conquer and Command & Conquer: Red Alert.
