Tremulous is a free, open source game that blends a team based FPS with elements of an RTS. Players can choose from 2 unique races, aliens and humans. Players on both teams are able to build working structures in-game like an RTS. These structures provide many functions, the most important being spawning. The designated builders must ensure there are spawn structures or other players will not be able to rejoin the game after death. The overall objective behind Tremulous is to eliminate the opposing team. This is achieved by not only killing the opposing players but also removing their ability to respawn by destroying their spawn structures.
The stand alone version of Tremulous is to be released on Friday 31st March! As if that wasn't enough, we've also put together a short promo video demonstrating Tremulous' gameplay. It's available in both high (40Mb) and low (11Mb) quality versions.
