Free/Open-source First-person Shooter Games

Filed under
Gaming

A first-person shooter (Commonly called FPS) is an action video game that involves "an avatar, one or more ranged weapons, and a varying number of enemies". FPSs render the game world from the visual perspective of the player character. FPS was one of the first genres to use key technologies such as 3D graphics, online play, and modding. Enhanced realism combined with graphic violence has also made FPS a common topic in ongoing controversies over video games.

I have collected some quality free/open-source first-person shooter games. Just a little warning to parents though; most of these games are indeed violent. You better let your little kids sleep first before splurging with these games. So without any more delay, here's the list already:

*AssaultCube, formerly ActionCube sets in a realistic looking environment, as far as that´s possible with this engine, while gameplay stays fast and arcade. This game is all about team oriented multiplayer fun. Although, a single player mode exists which consists of computer-controlled bots. It also includes Cube's map maker which allows for in-game editing.

Assault Cube

Assault Cube is nice and all for a FOSS game, but it's really not much fun at all after you've played Counter Strike.

KDE and Akademy

  • KDE Has Created Shashlik, A Way To Install Android Apps On Linux
    As you may know, KDE has created Shashlik, an emulator that permits the installation of Android apps on Linux systems. While Android is still Linux because they share the Linux kernel, Google’s OS has its own libraries and services while Linux uses the libraries and services brought by GNU.
  • Passing the Torch
    I hereby want to announce an open call to find a new maintainer for KDE’s speech recognition efforts.
  • Kubuntu Paddleboard Club
  • Akademy 2015 & Kate
    I didn’t do that much work on Kate, I mostly did small bugfixes for the applications bundled with the KDE Applications releases regarding their HiDPI support, finally no Konsole that can’t redraw correctly on scrolling on a HiDPI screen with scaling activated!
  • It’s the final countdown
  • Akademy 2015 coming to an end
    During the BoF days from Monday to Thursday, a great many tiny videos were shot of many of the attendees by Dan Leinir Turthra Jensen. These have been edited and cut up and turned into a video explaining, very shortly, what KDE really is. Being a community of people contributing to the development of software, the conclusion is straight forward. See the unsurprising conclusion in the video entitled What is KDE? (webm, mp4, vimeo), created as a tribute to the KDE community and all the amazing people in it.

The fact is, concerns about security and other issues have made some enterprises wary of letting users standardize on Android devices.

When it comes to the OnePlus 2's design, reviewers agree that the device has a solid, comfortable build thanks to the textured sandstone panel on the back and the slight convex shape that curves right into the hands, while still evoking that premium feel with the aluminum frame holding up the device.
