Tremulous is a free, open source game that blends a team based FPS with elements of an RTS. Players can choose from 2 unique races, aliens and humans. Players on both teams are able to build working structures in-game like an RTS. These structures provide many functions, the most important being spawning. The designated builders must ensure there are spawn structures or other players will not be able to rejoin the game after death. Other structures provide automated base defense (to some degree), healing functions and much more.

    Old, yet one of the of the greatest FPS games mixed with strategy around, but the community…. that is another story, too many potty-mouthed trolls hang around. Have fun with the game, avoid the main trem forums. Other trem clan forums are cool tho. There are mods to improve the old game if you get bored. Tremulous can run on the older PCs and look decent, but with a couple of the better mods, it can look amazing. Make sure to install TremFusion too.

    Here is a quote from official donor of Tremulous (« Reply #5 on: March 22, 2011, 12:49:52 PM »):
    “Don’t expect 1.2 anytime soon. While there are coders making small
    adjustments quite often, progress is very slow. Apparently it was
    decided that the majority of the sounds needed to be replaced with more
    liberal licensed ones. Now the current sounds in tremulous are by no
    means extraordinary, but lacking a ‘sound guy’ and the general slowness
    of this project, this is yet another very questionable decision.
    The truth is that tremulous will probably be dead in a year or at most two: -4000 players over a period of 1200 days (http://tremulous.net/graphs/unique-players.png).
    It’s stuck in some kind of release fear, the current release is from
    2006 and extremely buggy. You have to go through a lot of extra steps to
    get a decent (working) client. This is a major turnoff for new players
    as nobody wants to invest a lot of time just to get a game they don’t
    even know running. At the same time consider this from a developer
    perspective. Do you want to make stuff for a game which has it’s next
    release in 5+ years without any clear road map?”

    As dobruiyyk has recently noticed, Tremulous is in dire need of some
    serious developers and system administrators with good IT related
    experience (for example, the current stupid team decided to ban
    dobruiyyk on the only survived as yet official server because dobruiyyk
    is “trolling cool computer burglar who definitely knows how to use Tor
    to play online games”). Oh, maybe dobruiyyk had been trolling a bit on
    the forum, but that was only because of the empty Tremulous servers :
    there was no stable online of continuous fans but tremulous “senior
    admins” have continued baning every newcomer for “noob” or “nub” playing
    though.
