Nexuiz was a multiplayer 3d first person arena shooter, based on Forest Hale's DarkPlaces engine. Following a 2010 controversy, the game has been forked under a new name Xonotic, which is now actively developed. Nexuiz itself is now a proprietary game, rewritten from scratch in CryENGINE3. The archived code of Nexuiz before the fork is available under the name Xonotic Classic.
