Open Source Shoot-Em-Up

,----[ Quote ]
| But lately, I’m also starting to see the appeal of doing without a hyped-up
| platform like Unreal Tournament 2004 or Battlefield 1942. Fracturing the mod
| community has sparked creativity, particularly when it comes to open-source
| games based on free engines. A lot of out-there projects are getting major
| traction with gamers—big attention that wouldn’t happen if everyone was still
| fixated on grinding out Onslaught maps or tweaking Desert Combat.
