Red Eclipse

Red Eclipse

Red Eclipse is a Free and Open Source game, using SDL and OpenGL which allows it to be ported to many platforms..

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.

In a true open source by the people for the people nature, it tries to work closely with the gaming and open source communities to provide a better overall experience, taking all sorts of feedback from your average player, to your seasoned developer, aiming to create a story-driven game environment that is flexible, fun, easy to use, and pleasing to the eye.



Some time ago I'd give it a higher score, but now it's got worse. Weapons are really unbalanced, everyone simply runs around with the shotgun (I've been killed with a shotgun from 20m) and other weapons don't stand a chance. Also, the teams are almost never balanced. I know it's community's fault but a lot of matches are boring because of that.
