| Finally it starts! The Apricot team has been selected and is ready to make a
| smashing game using Crystal Space and Blender.
| Apricot is a joint effort between Crystal Space and Blender to create a fully
| open game with professional quality. All data and code will be published and
| can be used in other projects (Creative Commons license). In order to make
| the high level of quality possible that we are aiming for in this game we
| will have to work hard on Crystal Space for new features like a better
| animation system and a better renderer.

| System requirements aren't too bad either. They call for:
| 1GHz or higher CPU
| 256MB RAM
| GeForce 4 MX or equivalent GPU.
| However, if you want to play at the maximum settings. The requirements are a
| bit stiffer. You'll need at least:
| 2GHz or higher CPU
| 512MB RAM
| GeForce 6600 or equivalent shader model 2.0 GPU
| And at Maximum, the picture is, in my humble opinion, as good as, if not
| better in some ways, than many proprietary offerings.
