Hello @linuxmasterclub, what do you think of my post above about games? They are all libre software and available on GNU/Linux too. I'd love to say thank you too for sharing so much about libre software at your blog.

@ademalsasa Also worth mentioning all the members of the very first Humble Bundle - and maybe the second, too. I don't remember which one it was that the developers all agreed to open-source their games in response to the insane amount of money they received from it.

#AssaultCube and its improvement ACReloaded
#OpenArena and the similar #Nexuiz FPS
#Ravenfield (not through steam)

And many others that I showcase in my #peertube channel:

@kzimmermann reshared, thanks! Didn't know you have a Peertube and I'd love to check it out.

@ademalsasa Nice list! Also just heard people praising Teeworlds. Seems pretty fun, but I haven't played it yet.

One small correction:

> OpenArena, like Counter Strike

Definitely like Quake, not CS :)

Thank you, @robby. Came here to make the same correction. :)

@ademalsasa Good list btw. #wesnoth is also worth mentioning.

Hi, @ademalsasa at first glance, most of the games are on the list and will be added over time. I'll keep your list, thank you.

@ademalsasa i‘d say UrbanTerror is more CS-like… also would like to add OpenMW and OpenXCom


I sure do. Some that I play that weren't already listed are ReTux; Tuxemon and Red Eclipse.

@ademalsasa I'd add to that list:

openTTD a GPLv2 licensed version of Chris Sawyer's Transport Tycoon Deluxe. While initially it needed the asset data files from the original game, it now has various free alternative high quality asset sets. It also introduced a lot of (optional) extra features.
In a similar vein there is OpenRCT2, which is an open-source (GPLv3) re-implementation of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 (RCT2), expanding the game with new features, fixing bugs and raising game limits.
For the Command & Conquer / Red Alert / Dune 2000 fans there is openRA, which is GPLv3 licensed. Not quite sure what the current state of the assets is, but last time I looked into it I believe they were freely and legally downloadable from EA/Westwood.

@ademalsasa oh, and how could I forget OpenXcom?

OpenXcom is an open-source clone of the original UFO: Enemy Unknown (X-Com: UFO Defense in USA), licensed under the GPL and written in C++ / SDL.

X-COM is a series of strategy videogames originally made by MicroProse, where the player takes control of an organization to fight off an alien menace invading Earth.

@ademalsasa How can you forget Pixel Dungeon, Shattered Pixel Dungeon, and the other forks?

@ademalsasa Forgot Red Eclipse and Dark Mod.

Also there are a lot of libre licensed games with proprietary assets, such as Quadrilateral Cowboy.
