Sauerbraten - Cube 2 Based Free Multiplayer First Person Shooter

Saturday September 15, 2007
Sauerbraten Screenshot Sauerbraten is a popular free and open source computer game for Linux. It is a "First Person Shooter" game, that is, when you play it you see the world of the game from the perspective of the character that you control, giving you the impression of moving in the 3-dimensional space created by the game. The main activity of this character is running around in a fantastic world and shooting enemies or evil creatures.

The key feature that distinguishes Sauerbraten, and other games based on the Cube and Cube 2 engines, is the ability to edit the map and geometry of the game world dynamically, while playing the game. Other well-known First Person Shooter games include Quake, Unreal Tournament, Half-Life, and Counter-Strike.

Sauerbraten has been gaining rapidly in popularity and is now downloaded between 50,000 and 100,000 times each month. Download links for Linux can be found here. Read more...
