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.

Is there ever going to be an update to the menus? Maybe it's because I play it in 1920x1080, but the options text and server browser text is almost unreadable because there's large spaces between every letter.

Yeah, the menus are one of the top priorities. The guy that was working on them took ill, so his work was never completed. Currently we are waiting for idtech4 to come out, and will likely poach that menu system into our engine.

Oh, and try changing to one of the true type fonts, it should be quite readable.
