|OpenMortal is a free game. This means that the source code is available to be studied, modified, and distributed. Most projects look for help with testing, documentation, graphics, etc., as well.|
OpenMortal is a fighting game and is a parody of the proprietary game Mortal Kombat. It is licensed under the GPL. The latest version of the game is 0.7.1 released on June 15th, 2006. It is written in the Perl and C++ programming languages.
Instructions are provided on how to create new, realistic characters, so players and their friends could serve as actors for the game. As of 2008-05-30, there were 24 characters at http://openmortal.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/characters.cgi.
The game is not available in Debian, because its would-be maintainer found that it seemed dead since 2006, and thus he would have to deal with all the potential bug reports.
