tremulous – addictive open source FPS game

These past few days I’ve been hooked up playing Tremulous, an open source First Person Shooter (FPS) game. The objective of the game is to protect your team’s base and eliminate the enemy base. You can choose one of the two sides, either as member of human team or as an alien species.
