Red Eclipse

Red Eclipse is a free and open source game using SDL and OpenGL. It's a single-player and multi-player first-person ego-shooter, built as a total conversion of Cube Engine 2, which lends itself toward a balanced gameplay, completely at the control of map makers, while maintaining a general theme of agility in a variety of environments. The game consists of a variety of modes, which can be extended with any of twelve "mutators". For example, the "Capture the Flag" mode can be used in conjunction with the "Instagib" and "Jetpack" mutators, changing how the game is played. This allows players to experience more flexibility and variety when playing the same mode. There are also seven mode-exclusive mutators, which can only be played in certain modes.

Really fun game. :) Needs some GUI work though, the current one doesn't flow very well.

Are you guys looking for any additional help with modeling or something? :)
