Red Eclipse is a fun-filled new take on the casual first person arena shooter, built as a total conversion of Cube Engine 2, which lends itself toward a balanced gameplay, with a general theme of agility in a variety of environments. It features: Parkour, impulse boosts, dashing, and other tricks. Favourite game modes with an array of mutators and variables. A built-in editor lets you create your own maps cooperatively online. The project is a Free and Open Source game, built on Cube Engine 2 using SDL and OpenGL which allows it to be ported to many platforms; you can download a package for Windows, GNU/Linux, BSD, and OSX, or grab a development copy from our Subversion repository and live on the bleeding edge. In a true open source by the people for the people nature, we try to work closely with the gaming and open source communities to provide a better overall experience, aiming to create a game environment that is fun and easy to play, while still having elements to master.

Report article RSS Feed Microsoft demoes next gen concept w/ SuperTuxKart and Red Eclipse (FOSS games)

Microsoft's IllumiRoom concept video looks pretty amazing. It projects images all over your room to enhance gameplay to be more immersive. Two of the games in the demo are FOSS (free and open source) games. Red Eclipse is featured more prominently, but the girl is playing as Mozilla's old dinosaur Mascot in STK starting at :47. Thanks Microsoft for the publicity and this looks pretty cool.
