Freeware Shooter Nexuiz 1.1 Released
8:03 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

An update was recently released for freeware title Nexuiz, bringing with it beta Mac support as well as a number of bug fixes. A first-person shooter based off the Darkplaces engine, the folks behind Nexuiz designed it with the idea of bringing old-school deathmatches back for fans of the genre.

Nexuiz has been in development for 3.5 years by a team of amateur developers lead by Lee Vermeulen. It is a 3d deathmatch game made entirely over the internet. The purpose of the game is to bring deathmatch back to the basics, with perfect weapon balancing and fast paced action, keeping itself away from the current trend of realistic shooters.
Included in the current version are 15 player models and 17 maps. Nexuiz also boasts extremely low system requirements, and is usable even on a GeForce 1. Screenshots and forums can be found at the official Nexuiz site.

Mac users interested in trying out version 1.1 can download it from MacGameFiles. The file is sized at 158MB and is under the GPL, making it free for play and use in other projects.
