Warsow – free fast-paced first-person shooter for Linux, Windows, and macOS

Warsow is a fast-paced 3D ego-shooter with colorful graphics which look like in comic (black lines around things; deliberatly surrealistic graphics) or similar to the movie “Tron”.

Like a true cyberathlete you jump, dash, dodge, and walljump your way through the game. Grab power-ups before your enemy does, plant a bomb before anyone sees you, and steal the enemy’s flag before they know what is going on!

The base gameplay is focused around the art of movement, meaning that moving, speed and tricks play a big part in the gameplay. It also contains a complete Power-up System including Weak and Strong fire mode for each weapon.

The graphics are in a cartoonish style with celshading-like_but_not_Manga style, mixing dark, flashy and dirty textures, matching the action full of fun and speed. The game is inspired from titles such as Quakeworld, Quake3 CPMA, Jet Set Radio and Speedball.

It is built upon Qfusion, an advanced modification of the Quake II engine.

  • Fast and furious gameplay.
  • Trickjumping including circle-jumping, bunny hopping, strafe-jumping, double jumping, ramp-sliding, and rocket jumping.
