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.

The Linux version is being updated to the 7.53 release of 2011-12-27. The tarball for the 7.53 release has also been uploaded.

The update does not include the dedicated server. The dedicated server server launch should not be used. Running a dedicated server requires more complex configuration, but most users will not be running a dedicated server, so this is not a big problem.

I will try to monitor this forum for problems. Our main forum is a good place to report problems or get information.
