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.
Creating player models is hard work, especially if you want them to be of reasonable quality. Alien Arena has slowly added new player models since the great purge of 2008, and we are now up to 7 with the addition of this guy, the Martian Overlord. This character has been in the works for a couple of years, but only recently was there time to create it. Long time fans of the game will recognize some characteristics of three past characters(Brainlet, Rustbot, and Brainboss).
