In LinuxHotBox E-Magazine we plan to bring you gaming news on a regular basis. In this months magazine we want to bring the FPS game, Cube under your attention. For several reasons.
Yes, Cube is one of the many First Person Shooters around, but there are some things to mention that makes it special in it's kind.
First of all, it's a totally free game under the ZLIB license. This means, you may use Cube for any purpose and may freely distribute the cube archive unmodified on any media. Finally, it's allowed to create your own Cube version from the Cube engine and make your own Game maps, models and scripts and distribute it.
It has Limited Hardware requirements; you can play the game excellent on a 500 Mhz machine with 64MB ram and a graphics card with drivers that supports OpenGL, GeForce, NVidea, TNT2.
About the Game and the New Release
On the 23rd of December last year the new release of Cube became available with some new features and modifications. Cube is what a FPS is supposed to be. The game play is about killing stuff. It is a fully playable FPS game and has a Multiplayer and a Single player Mode.
The Multi Player Mode
In the Multi player mode you can play on the Internet or you can set up a LAN Game. Both are equally simple to set up.
