Do you like old school deathmatch with modern features but none of the frills that have ruined the raw purity of the genre? How about rich, colorful, arcadelike atmospheres? How about...retro Sci Fi? Then you're going to love what Alien Arena has in store for you! This game combines some of the very best aspects of classic deathmatch, and wraps them up with a retro alien theme, while adding tons of original ideas to make the game quite unique. Alien Arena is a furious frag fest with arenas ranging from the small, to the massive. With game modes such as Capture The Flag and Tactical, there are terrific team-based experiences to be had as well as 1v1 duels, free-for-all, and dozens of mutators to alter the game play to your liking. The community is friendly, as well as prolific. Dozens of maps, models, and various accessories have been created by community members to add on to the game experience.

Version 7.51 of Alien Arena has been officially released! This latest version of the standalone, open source FPS game features a number of optimizations that have resulted in a dramatic performance increase across the board. There were also a number of graphical updates, including a rewrite of the post process effects for pain and heatwave distortions.

Some of the new features for this release include:

  • Extensive rewrite of bsp surface rendering for a massive performance increase.
  • Complete rewrite of vertex buffer object code.
  • Complete rewrite of post process effects.
  • Improvements to shadow mapping for dynamic shadows.
  • Variety of graphical updates and bugfixes.
  • Three new/revamped levels.
  • Added downloading of iqm meshes.

We also revamped several maps(dm-violator was actually rebuilt from scratch) and gave them not only a modern visual treatment, but also improved the game flow in some cases were we felt it was needed. Check out the screens below for a taste!
