Tremulous: The best free software game ever? - Linux and open source software lag behind the proprietary market in the number and quality of available video games, especially in the realm of first-person shooters (FPS), a genre dominated by the likes of Doom, Quake, Unreal, Half-Life, and Halo. Here, Linux is an afterthought, if not ignored completely. Tremulous, a mixture of FPS and RTS (real-time strategy) written by Tim Angus, is an exception to that rule. [GNUs]
I've tried Tremulous a bit last night before going to sleep and I gotta say it does look like a great game, definitely one of the best in its genre. The fact that it's on a Quake 3 engine (which worked fine on my and even older hardware, and that's an onboard graphics chip) made Tremulous playable on my computer as well (of course with DRI enabled, which I certainly welcome.
