Blood Frontier

Blood Frontier

Blood Frontier is a single-player and multi-player first-person shooter, built as a total conversion of Cube Engine 2, which lends itself toward a balanced gameplay, completely at the control of map makers, while maintaining a general theme of tactics and low gravity.

In a true open source "by the people for the people" nature, it tries to work closely with the gaming and open source communities to provide a better overall experience, taking feedback from all types of player, aiming to create a story-driven game environment that is flexible, fun, easy to use, and pleasing to the eye.

In the distant future, humanity has spread throughout the solar system, to Mars and beyond. A vast communications network bridges from colony to colony, human to machine, and machine to human. This seemingly benign keystone of modern inter-planetary society, however, appears to be the carrier of a mysterious techno-biological plague. Any persons so-connected seem to fall ill and die, only to return as ravenous, sub-human cannibals. You, a machine intelligence, an android, remain unafflicted by this strange phenomenon and have been tasked with destroying the growing hordes of the infected, while, hopefully, locating and stopping the source of the epidemic.

Blood Frontier uses OpenGL and SDL. All of the artwork for this game is original and is geared around a space/futuristic theme.
