Cube 2: Sauerbraten

Free & Open Source… single and multi player 1st person shooter game with some satisfying fast old school game play. A large variety of game play modes from classic SP to fast one on one Multi player and objective based team play.

The engine, though designed for simplicity and elegance as opposed to feature & eye candy checklists, still competes nicely.

Game Features

  • Game Play is very similar to Doom 2 / Quake 1
  • Many multi player game play modes, most in team play variants as well: death match, efficiency, tactics, capture (domination/battlefield style), CTF (capture the flag) etc.
  • Master server & in game server browser.
  • Lag-free game play experience.
  • Two single player modes: DMSP (fight a monster invasion on any DM map), classic SP (progression driven SP like other games)
  • 7 weapons tuned for maximum satisfaction: double barrel shotgun, rocket launcher, machine gun, rifle, grenade launcher, pistol, fist.
