X-Moto is a 2D motocross platform game where the goal is to complete various levels as fast as possible by collecting all the strawberries. Physics plays an all important role in the gameplay. You need to control your bike to its limits, if you want to have a chance to finish the most difficult challenges.

"It's been 8 months since the last release and they've done a lot of stuff for this release, so much it's suddenly 250mb which was way past our 177mb goal. This is biggest release ever, to state the obvious

  • 26 new maps
  • ce1m7, oa_bases3, dm4ish, dm6ish, and cbctf1 also had several changes
  • Bloom (activated by r_bloom 1)
  • New announcer voice
  • New gibs
  • Quake's DM maps converted, from dm1 to dm7
  • uses ioquake3 revision 1107
  • more menu graphics, i.e. the player model button is actually there!
  • lots of other stuff like redone sounds and textures

An Open Source Futuristic Action Flight Simulator Game.

Thunder&Lightning is the new name of a rather old project by Jonas Eschenburg. What started in 1999 as a technology demonstration has become quite an advanced flight simulator. There will be multiple Islands to conquer, each with its own defense strategy. Thunder&Lightning will not be mission oriented, but there will be scripted events for each island. TNL has been released to the public, under the GPL, an Open Source license. While it is already playable, Thunder&Lightning is by no means a finished game.

Changes in this release:
  • An aircraft carrier that serves as take-off and landing platform for the Lightning aircraft, capable of self-defense with a deck turret.
  • Water rendering: A GLSL shader renders realistic waves on machines with hardware shader support.
  • A new cockpit with multi function display.
  • AI drones can now take off and land on the carrier after performing their mission.
  • Reworked missions that make use of the aircraft carrier and an extended tutorial mission.
  • Enhanced flight model.
  • Autopackage installation.
  • Various bugfixes.

"The only thing we require is that you fight for your realm."

Regnum Online is a free MMORPG with clients for both linux and ***dows based systems. There are 3 realms to choose from, if you are familiar with other MMORPGs this term is a bit different than you are used to. Instead of refering to the server you are playin on the term "realm" in Regnum is used to designate which legion or side you are choosing. These are called Alsius, Ignis and Syrtis. There are currently: 9 player characters, hundreds of quests, the ability to capture forts and castles, and beautiful expansive lands to explore.
  • Regnum offers 3 realms to choose from.
  • 9 fully customizable player characters.
  • An ever expanding number of quests.
  • The ability to capture forts and castles.
  • Expansive lands to explore.
  • Glorious graphical environments in DirectX and OpenGL.
  • Support for Windows and Linux platforms.
  • Community driven development, meaning we develop the game based on players' feedback.
  • Premium content is available for enhanced game play.
Regnum has left beta after 5 long years of development. From what I can tell Regnum is still free (correct me if I'm wrong) but they have now implemented paid content/services as well. All current players are being reset >.< but accounts will remain active.

Better graphics for a lot of items. Border graphics improved. Buttons for going up/down in Maps visible again, Help screen does not change font size anymore, Skill selection without pressing mouse button sometimes, Second page for selecting playing piece visible again.

Lost Labyrinth is a roquelike roleplaying computergame with a Zelda like graphics engine licens under GPL. It has very high replayability because everything is created at random.
Relatively short gameplay (between 10-40 Minutes). Very high replayability because everything is created at random! Many different skills to choose from (every player needs another tactic!). No experience gain for killing monsters (only for reaching new levels!). Zelda like graphics and Smooth scrolling. You can be up to 4 players at the same machine. Control with mouse, keyboard and joystick. Online Highscore and more...

The aim of the game is to play guitar with the keyboard as accurately as possible.

See you on the highway!

Interstate Outlaws is a death match style game using Vehicles instead of the traditional player characters. Loosely based on Activision's Interstate series, the development team aims to make this game an amazing recreation and beyond. So far it looks really great, though I can't test it yet as my boards are there and I am not having much time for these stuff
I should be able to post a good review of this for the next release as I'll be building a new system very very soon.
