Do you like old school deathmatch with modern features but none of the frills that have ruined the raw purity of the genre? How about rich, colorful, arcadelike atmospheres? How about...retro Sci Fi? Then you're going to love what Alien Arena has in store for you! This game combines some of the very best aspects of classic deathmatch, and wraps them up with a retro alien theme, while adding tons of original ideas to make the game quite unique. Alien Arena is a furious frag fest with arenas ranging from the small, to the massive. With game modes such as Capture The Flag and Tactical, there are terrific team-based experiences to be had as well as 1v1 duels, free-for-all, and dozens of mutators to alter the game play to your liking. The community is friendly, as well as prolific. Dozens of maps, models, and various accessories have been created by community members to add on to the game experience.

COR Entertainment will have a booth at this year's POSSCON for Alien Arena. This excellent event is growing each year and should be even better than ever. I was invited to speak as well, and will be conducting a 45 minute session on open source gaming on March 24th, and a 2 hour workshop the following day that will be more detailed and talk about some of the rendering techniques used in Alien Arena and other games.

I've been working on our booth setup, and have all of the necessary hardware up and running. Here is what we have, on my kitchen table. Luckily the booth table is a foot wider, because it's pretty cramped fitting two massive Alienware towers and 27 and 22 inch flatscreens on it.

On the development front, there should be a new map in the SVN repos very soon, one that has actually been about a year in the making! It began life as a remake of our Dm-zorn, but has turned into a somewhat of a monster. Work continues on the new GUI, and quite a few new and revamped maps are planned for a summer release.
