Submission + - Leges Motus Beta 1 Released! (sourceforge.net)

SF:greywhind writes: Leges Motus, the open-source 2D team-based tactical shooter set in zero-gravity, released its first open beta today. With nearly six months of development behind it, the game has solid multiplayer gameplay that combines twitch aiming with strategic planning as players attempt to move across the arena, freezing opponents to reach the other team\'s gate and bring it down. Leges Motus is looking for map-makers and artists to expand the game\'s resources, but mostly, it\'s just looking for you to join in the fun. If you want to try Leges Motus out for yourself, visit our SourceForge project page at http://sourceforge.net/projects/legesmotus.
