Submission + - Tremulous moves to Xbox, loses sight of open roots 1

An anonymous reader writes: Following in the footsteps of popular open source shooter Nexuiz, Tim Angus, better known by the open source gaming community as "Timbo", has announced that a deal has been reached between Microsoft game studios and Darklegion Development to bring the Tremulous concept to Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Xbox live service. As part of the deal, Microsoft has acquired all rights to the Tremulous brand, including the tremulous.net domain.
Unfortunately, while attempts were made by the community to negotiate the co-existence of xbox and open source projects under the same name, MGS flatly refused to allow this and, just hours after the original announcement, the disgruntled ex-dev team made the decision to fork Tremulous. The resulting project, "Librelous", a portmanteau of Libre and Tremulous, promises to breath new life into the game with brand new music, sounds and high res graphics, in addition to the much anticipated flashlight.

  • The flashlight will change the game too much in favor of humans. I play with gamma 1.0 and I LIKE IT!

The gent who wakes up and finds himself a success hasn't been asleep.
