Due to increased public support for Nexuiz, a deathmatch first person shooter being released this fall, the development team has decided to open a forum. The forum will allow fans to discuss Nexuiz with other fans and to ask any Nexuiz related questions they may have.

Along with the new forums, developers have also released a new set of in-game screenshots, a selection of which may also be viewed by following the Screens tab above. Another new addition is the new paypal donation link for fans to support Nexuiz by donating to the development team.

Nexuiz is a 3d deathmatch game based on the Darkplaces engine. The darkplaces engine is an advanced quake1 engine developed mainly by Forest LordHavoc Hale, who has been working with the Quake1 engine for many years. A few of Darkplaces main features are Quake3bsp support, realtime lighting and shadowing, new particle effects, advanced menu system, and Md3/Md2 model support. Because Nexuiz is based on the quake1 engine, its source code is entirely GPL and can be downloaded at any time by request.

The Nexuiz game has been in development for 2 years by a team of amateur developers lead by Lee Vermeulen. The purpose of the game is to bring deathmatch back to the basics, with perfect weapon balancing and fast paced action. It uses HFX textures by Evil Lair, and currently has 20 maps to frag in. With an advanced UI, the user can select between 15 different player models to use, and can connect to the developer master server to play people from all over the world.

Set to be released later this year, Nexuiz will not require a high end system. Video cards such as a Geforce1 will be able to run Nexuiz, while highend video cards will be able to take advantage of some features such as realtime lighting and bump mapping.

This game will be released free over the internet, but the developers will still require donations to keep development going. If you wish to find out more about Nexuiz or consider donating, please follow the download tab above.
