Alien Arena is an open sourced game that combines a sci-fi atmosphere with the tournament style deathmatch of Q3A and UT2k4. Major graphical features such as GLSL per-pixel lighting, ragdoll physics, light blooms, real time lights and shadows, textured particles, shaders, and reflective water, create a colorful and immersive deathmatch atmosphere. The game also includes mutators, adjustable effects, bot skill settings, and fully configurable deathmatch, team deathmatch, CTF, All Out Assault, Team Core Assault, Cattle Prod, and Deathball games. The game features original artwork, with a dark, sinister atmosphere combined with an off-the-wall campiness, and trippy, techno type music. There are currently over 60 maps, loaded with weapons(each having an alternate firing mode) and powerups. Alien Arena has fast, smooth gameplay, & players can play online against one another or against the bots. Please post all support issues in the forums for the game.

Robotz DX

Screenshots of the game
(these guys need more screen shots :P)

Robotz DX is an unashamedly old-school, single-screen shoot-em-up with strategic game play. Although simple in concept, it is a difficult game to beat; you will die many times before you master all 30 arenas - and even when you do conquer the game, it's randomly generated level layouts will provide a new challenge on every subsequent play-through.

Till next time mod away my good friends and watch this group for updates.

Nice one. I like the way you do the comments, it's nice to listen to, but I do suggest another microphone...

Keep it up!

For some reason I can't watch this video.
In fact, I can't watch any video from this site today, even though I've watched spotlight videos yesterday just fine.
Seems like player fails to load video properly

Try another browser or watch the video from the "Videos" page of the group. For some reason the embedded player doesn't work with Opera :(

Cool, my game showed up there!

Too bad the short section of music shown was with buffer underrun (I fixed that only yesterday, and I still don't uploaded the version with that fix)

I know I'm going to get flamed for saying this, but, why are you speaking with no emotion? Again, no offense, but your voice is so boring, and it sounds like you just woke up and had to quickly finish the video. Anyways it's a nice recap...I'll have to check out Rebotz DX, it looks sweet.

Yes I was pressed for time this month, otherwise the video would have been out at a more reasonable time. Next month will be better.

I swear I thought FPS terminator was Killzone2 at first, amazing an independant team can get to that level of quality.
