Nexuiz 1.0

Cube was one of the first 3D first person shooters that offered an intelligent game play complete with its own engine, using SDL and OpenGL while complying with open-source standards. Although the graphics aren't the best in the current Cube Engine version (2004), it continues to be a very popular game for open-source gamers who enjoy the most out of first person shooters. On May 31, 2005 a new GNU game has finally made its way out for public release after nearly four years in development, this game is Nexuiz. The game, in its 1.0 release, contains over 17 maps, 28 playable characters, and 10 music tracks. It even supports up to 64 players on death-match servers. All parts of this game are licensed under the GPL (GNU Public License), but exactly how does this game look and feel? We have plenty of screenshots today to report our initial findings.
