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.

Quake 3 Arena didn't have per pixel lighting, soft shadows, light volumes, lens flares, ragdoll physics, so I don't see how it "looks like the Q3A engine" ;)

so uh... in the description of alien arena "based on id tech 2 source"... that's quake 2 engine... So I can see how people can see why it looks sorta like quake 3 engine.

Also, keep in mind that the call of duty games are based on the id tech 3 engine (heavily modified... I know, that's why they have such fancy effects). But the point is once an engine is made, doesn't mean it has to stagnate... just look at valves source engine.

You should of added a Co-Op where you play as aliens fighting citizens and the U.S army and you could play as them :)

We do have a class-based mutator, where character types have different abilities and starting weapons, this mutator can be applied to team modes, which while not truly co-op, it's a bit similar.
