    Phoronix: Alien Arena 2008 Receives Graphics Improvements

    While not commonly mentioned at Phoronix, Alien Arena is an open-source sci-fi first-person shooter that has been around since 2004 and uses the CRX engine, which is a derivative of the Id's GPL source-code. Version 7.20 of Alien Arena 2008 was released this week and a few features had caught our attention. In addition to a number of game-play improvements, Alien Arena has received a number of improvements to its graphics renderer with GLSL program management, parallax mapping, new lighting, new shaders, and other work.

    I can recommend giving this game a try. It's a true and honest deathmatch experience, coming with a not-too-serious sci-fi atmosphere I like.

    Wow. It runs so much smoother now (even at the highest settings). Game looks more "crisp" and clean also. Very good update.
