    Phoronix: Ioquake3-Derived Spearmint 1.0 Engine Coming Next Month, But Ceasing Development

    Spearmint, an enhanced version of the open-source ioquake3 engine in turn derived from the id Tech 3 source code, will see the big "1.0" milestone in October. But that will also coincide with the developer and ioquake3 maintainer ceasing work on this engine now with an eighteen year lineage...

    This is one project I have really enjoyed over the years. I still regularly have Q3A tournaments with my fellow colleagues.

    And its weird, I still see the game as good looking and "AAA". After all, it is still quite resource intensive and the majority of tablets and things will still struggle to play it smoothly.
