A while back, I wrote an Intern’s Corner post entitled My Open Source Life Outside of MAKE, in which I talked about my experience working on Alien Arena, the open source first-person shooter. Well, for those who might be interested, I’m proud to announce that version 7.60, codenamed “Reloaded Edition,” has recently been released. It’s a free, open source, and extremely fun video game that runs on Windows and Linux. Download it here.

Some of the new features for this release include:

  • Many new rendering features
  • Twelve new/rebuilt levels
  • Two new player characters, the Overlord and Warrior
  • Brand new “super” weapon, the Minderaser
  • Improved antilag code
  • “Simple” items rendering option
  • Improved and expanded movement
  • Improved Bot AI, particulary with CTF
  • New music, and music “shifts” in game situations
  • Variety of bug fixes and code cleansing
