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.

Though Curse was amazing I think FoF deserved the win a bit more. But they both eradicate the competition.

I agree with their choice. Curse as a new release and is one of the most polished singleplayer mod's out there. However, there was a lot of good stuff. I find it funny that Duke Theft Auto and CnC: Retarded used the same music in those video clips.

Why where there 2 carriers at the same time in the ZPS video?

We introduced a new gameplay option for ZPS that ramps up the difficulty significantly. It is a "fun" gameplay mode that fits on top of survival and objective maps.

I like how you can tell, even from this video, that Souleon Storm was played on a computer not powerful enough for the game.

lol, no (But good idea though)

It was a guy named Sanek (who is Russian hence the music) who was known in the Duke Nukem community for stealing parts of other peoples maps and claiming them as his own work. Though he has changed his ways now.
