Parsec is a cross-platform multiplayer space combat game being created by a group of independent game developers. A self-running demo and LAN test were released several months ago, but the Parsec team has been relatively quiet ever since. They are working toward a final release for three platforms (MacOS, Windows, Linux) and three 3D API's (Glide, OpenGL, Direct3D). The game itself will be "commercial-quality freeware," and is quite a visual and audio treat to play; however there is no set date for completion of the project.
