Linux FPS game project
I've been producing a FPS game/engine specifically for Linux (compiles also for Windows) since late last year. The project is starting to be in quite a good state already, so I decided to bring this up also here at Phoronix. I'm sure there are some people who would be interested in this sort of project.
The names of the engine and game are still open, although for now the engine is called Polyscape.
The game idea is not at a very mature state yet, but what is sure is that this will be a realistic network FPS. For now, the goal is to release a test version that implements basic team based death match in a relatively large landscape setting. There is no real goal of a completely finished game, but the game development will be a continuous process, where new releases are frequently uploaded.
There will be a more elaborate game idea later on, but the plans are still on the table. Most probably the game will be team based and very objective oriented. By "objective", I don't mean the well-known "place bomb etc.", but something more complicated and inspiring.
I would be very happy to hear any comments and thoughts.
Any benchmark mode for it yet?
Help with testing is highly welcome. I will upload the first version of the game after next week. I can
