Alien Arena 2008 Receives Graphics Improvements

,----[ Quote ]
| While not commonly mentioned at Phoronix, Alien Arena is an open-source
| sci-fi first-person shooter that has been around since 2004 and uses the CRX
| engine, which is a derivative of the Id's GPL source-code. Version 7.20 of
| Alien Arena 2008 was released this week and a few features had caught our
| attention. In addition to a number of game-play improvements, Alien Arena
| 2008 has received a number of improvements to its graphics renderer with GLSL
| program management, parallax mapping, new lighting, new shaders, and other
| work.

,----[ Quote ]
| I find the game very addictive, although I’m a "below average" gamer. I
| always get smoked in single player game even in easy mode. Maybe they gave
| those bots too much AI (hehe). Anyway, I also tried multiplaying over the
| network and I got eaten alive. *

Free Games for Linux

| A round-up of fun Linux diversions.

| When people talk about computer gaming these days, they

| people realize that Linux can be more than just a very good Web or
| file server. Even fewer people are aware of the many open-source or
| otherwise freely available games available for Linux.
