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 Git 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.

If you think you might have something to contribute to the game or community, please feel free to drop by our Chat or Forums and talk to us directly. We try to maintain a standard of friendly behaviour in our community, so don't be afraid to speak up and have your say in building this game for us all :)

The game is available for free, but please consider contributing a small token to pay for expenses and future improvements.

Two years in the making, Red Eclipse is back for the biggest release yet; v1.5 "Aurora Edition".

We've been working hard on all areas of the game, improving weapon balance, refining the user interface, and helping new players learn the game. Included in this release is our new auto-updating mechanism, designed to keep you running the latest improvements and freshest maps.


This release is also our first release as a true community built game. With a recent move to GitHub, the project is now openly developed, allowing everyone to contribute to the game we all love in a format where everyone gets a say (and learns how to contribute at the same time). If you feel like you'd have something to contribute, come see us in action!

Here's some interesting things that have changed:

  • Support for giving AI orders ("defend", "attack", "base", "goal", "ball", "forget").
  • Better physics and bounce sounds for affinities (flags/points/bombs).
  • Footstep sounds, hear people approaching!
  • Auto team balancing, so you're never stuck with uneven team counts.
  • Rebalanced all weapons, making for a fairer game.
  • New weapon, the "zapper". Electrify your friends and foes!
  • Increased weapon spread when in air / impulsing
  • Rebranded Defend-The-Flag to Defend-And-Control, with a new look.
  • Increased buffing timeout tolerances when defending affinities.
  • Slicker menus, tips and rollover help text.
  • Scoreboard redesign and better colouring.
  • Ability to send a message to a specific player with "whisper".

Map changes:

  • Race
    • Absorption - new time-trial map by Unnamed.
    • Amplification - new time-trial map by Unnamed.
    • Relax - new time-trial map by Bonifarz.
    • Steel Rat - added to time-trial rotation.
    • Test Chamber - retextured by Quinton Reeves.
    • War Depot - new time-trial map by TristamK.
  • Other game modes
    • Abuse - new map by ballist1c.
    • Campgrounds - new map by ballist1c and Greaserpirate.
    • Canyon - new map by restcoser.
    • Condensation - new map by Unnamed.
    • Decay by Ricky Thomson.
    • Echo2k - remix of Echo by Ulukai.
    • Enyo - new map by Ulukai.
    • Octavus - new map by Ricky Thomson.

Data Assets:

  • New vanity items!
    • Blade
    • Boots
    • Chestplate
    • Crown
    • Disc
    • Fox Ears
    • Guitar
    • Mask
    • Microeye
    • Panda
    • Prongs
    • Shoulder armour
  • New wakawaka sound.
  • New model for control points used in Defend-and-Control and Bomber-Ball.
  • New Rocket projectile by Unnamed.
  • Added texture set by Unnamed.
  • Added lava texture by Nobiax, applied in maps Hinder, Nova, Tower

As always, have fun playing Red Eclipse!

I can't believe people still prefer sauerbraten to this. This game is superior in every way. For me this is the successor of sauerbraten. Maybe they should this Cube 3, then more people would play this...

No matter how much time I spend on this game, it doesn't get old. The "agile gameplay" system also makes for a lot of freedom. Want to climb up that wall? Or run over the other one? Or want to use the Impulse System to quickly rush towards your opponent to hit them with your sword, set them on fire or kick them? Do whatever you want!

Oh, the freedom of movement in this game makes it so enjoyable, both for a quick 5-minute match as for several hours after each other. Add to that the variation of gamemodes and choice of mutators, and there is literally a perfect setting for everyone. A game everybody MUST try.

hmm... the rifle seems underpowered, and the plasma gun's secondary seems overpowered.

Also, I think an assault rifle would be nice
