OpenArena is a multiplayer First Person Shooter game (This could be considered the Free Software Alternative for the famous Counter Strike).
This game is designed cross platform, so it doesn’t matter what operating system you use and you can play it on all.
The Game is licensed in GPL and is a Free Software. OpenArena supports both Single player and Multiplayer. On Multiplayer mode, you can either connect your machines on a LAN without Internet or connect to Internet and join an existing Server and play with people from remote locations too.
We have planned to come up with an Schedule soon where we shall all come online at time on weekend and join an existing server.
