    Warsow: So, You Haven't Played It?

    To any gamers out there (from the bored office worker to the hardcore gamer):


    The concept of Warsow

    Warsow is a free standalone first person shooter game for Windows and Linux. It is based on the Qfusion 3D engine (a modification of the Quake 2 GPL engine), and aimed on the competitive scene, or the e-sports community.

    Warsow is developped under the motto "by gamers for gamers" by a team coming from all kinds of gaming backgrounds. To attain the "by gamers for gamers" spirit, the community are our betatesters, both through internal testing sessions (with community members) and in the feedback on the public releases. We make decisions in close cooperation with the community. However, we do have our own general development direction, and therefor will carefully judge all suggestions and critique made by the community. This way we try to reach a balance between the general consensus on gameplay aspects in the community, and what we feel is best for Warsow's gameplay and concept in the development process.

    The base gameplay is focussed around the art of movement, meaning moving, speed and tricks play a big part in the gameplay. Besides this, mapcontrol, aim, teamplay and fragging skills play their role too. For the movement we've basicly looked at four games: Quakeworld (legendary for it's speed), Quake3 CPMA, Jet Set Radio and Speedball.



    This game will have you addicted from the get-go!


    ....and did I mention it is FREE?

    Maybe it was just me... but I found it too "cartoony".

    For my free, multiplayer, 'need to kill some time' type games, I enjoy Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory (http://www.planetwolfenstein.com/enemyterritory/)

    That being said, I picked up a PS3 on the weekend and I'm really enjoying playing through Unreal Tournament 3 right now... both single and multiplayer.
