Nexuiz (Free 3D Deathmatch Game)

Nexuiz is a 3D deathmatch game who's goal is to return this genre back to its basics, with perfect weapon balancing and fast paced action. Currently the game has 17 maps to fight in, and 15 different player models to use. You can connect to the master server to play people from all over the world, or you can setup your own.

The game's content and source are GPL. Meaning, it is entirely free and any of it can be used in other free projects, even if modified. Nexuiz is based on the Quake1 engine, its source code along with its content is entirely GPL. Nexuiz will also use the Quake1 game code language, called QuakeC, which makes modding the gameplay of the game extremely easy.

Nexuiz will not require a high end system. Video cards such as a Geforce1 will be able to run Nexuiz, while higher-end video cards will be able to take advantage of the more advanced features such as realtime lighting and bumpmapping.
