Several readers have written in this morning to mention the release of RedEclipse 1.0. RedEclipse is the successor to the Blood Frontier game and it's built upon the famous Cube 2 Engine.

The game is self described as:
Red Eclipse is a Free and Open Source game, using SDL and OpenGL which allows it to be ported to many platforms; grab a development copy from our Subversion repository and live on the bleeding edge.

The game is a single-player and multi-player first-person ego-shooter, built as a total conversion of Cube Engine 2, which lends itself toward a balanced gameplay, completely at the control of map makers, while maintaining a general theme of agility in a variety of environments.

It's available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux/BSD. It can be downloaded at
