Hero of Allacrost, or simply Allacrost, is a 2D single-player RPG licensed under the GNU General Public License and was founded by Tyler Olsen in June 2004.[88][89]

The team's official description of the game is as follows:

Hero of Allacrost is a single player 2D role-playing game that shares similar appearance and gameplay with classic console RPGs. In Hero of Allacrost, the player will explore rich environments, solve challenging dungeon puzzles, and fight strategic battles in an active-time based system.

The game will be released in modules, rather than waiting until the entire game is finished to make a release. Once a new module is released, players can download it and install it, which will make more content available for the player to continue the game from where they last saved. Each Allacrost release will contain a new chapter of the story. Each section is released when it is completely finished.[90]

It is written in the C++ and Lua programming languages using the SDL library.[91]

Limbs Off 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.

Limbs Off is the flagship in plaimi's phun-fysics genre, in which they strive to reproduce complex real life physics, but take certain liberties whenever they feel it will add to the entertainment of the games. Limbs Off specifically is a fighting game that takes place in space. Right now there is only one planet and three characters, but plaimi want to implement several planets as well as inter-planetary travel via cannons, amongst other features[96].

The characters are "limbless", and consist of a head, body, two feets and hands. As of yet, the only way of "fighting" is running into each other. When the characters hit each other, their mass is decreased up to a point where their body parts are unlinked and the characters effectively become space junk[97].

The source code is licensed under the GNU GPL[98], and plaimi encourage people to contribute with code, make their own art, and make packages for UNIX package managers[99].

Limbs Off does not come with sprites or sounds. Instead, plaimi want to hack the game to load art from a data directory, so that users can install their own art. As of yet it only supports this with character sprites[100], as the game is at a very early alpha stage. It "went public" on the 24th of September in 2011, on github[101].

The game runs on relatively modest hardware, and has been compiled and run successfully on most modern UNIX-based operating systems[102].

Childish Cannoneer 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.

Childish Cannoneer is the first venture of the "Indie Games" project hosted by White Island Software at the Gambas Forum, and participated in by Piga Software through Graham L. Wilson. The aim of the project is to make computer games to show off the Gambas language, with the eventual hope of inclusion in the Humble Indie Bundle for maximum attention. It is to feature a little boy building a makeshift air cannon from spare parts only to terrorize his older sister, and potentially the whole neighbourhood, while evading the wrath of his father. The majority of the game's multimedia are derived from vector graphics taken from OpenClipart and sound effects taken from SoundBible. Contributions to this project, or the creation of other entities for the Indie Games project, are more then welcome.

FreeOrion is a turn-based strategy game of galactic conquest inspired by the Master of Orion games. As is typical for 4X games, players have to explore their surroundings, colonize new planets, manage their economies, research spectacular technologies, build up military might and conquer their neighbors, and ultimately, the entire galaxy. Features specific to FreeOrion are the diverse fantastical species and peculiar history of the game galaxy, the design of new ships with a multitude of hulls and ship parts available after research, and the possibility of technological victory after researching transcendence.

There is an impressive in-game encyclopaedia and most things can be looked up by clicking hyperlinks in messages or through right-click menus. The encyclopaedia includes both generic FreeOrion help and backstory as well as current game info such as for example what the target population of a particular planet would be if you were to colonize it with each of the species in your empire.

The game's source code is licensed under the GPL v2 and its media under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 license.[115][116]

Colobot - colonise with bots - is a combination of a real-time strategy and a programming game. The player takes the role of an astronaut with the mission to find a habitable planet, after humankind plunged the Earth into an ecological catastrophe. The player is not on their own, but accompanied by programmable robots that can help in building and defending structures. Through a satellite link with 'Houston' she/he is directed to complete a number of missions on different planets. The game also involves a rather aggressive though evolving relationship with native alien lifeforms.

Apart from the missions, there are also two game modes that instruct the player in the use of CBOT, the language used to program the bots. This language is rather similar to C++ and Java. During the missions, it's not really necessary to write code for the bots, but it is convenient to be able to adapt the programs Houston offers to the player. Version 0.1.6 introduced the Code Battle game mode, where players first provide all programs needed to operate a base and/or kill all enemies, and then let the programmed bots do their job without the possibility to interfere. The game provides three types of enemies: passive targets, pre-programmed bots and hot-seat play against a fellow human.

Hase is an open source (GPL) gravity based artillery shooter. It is similar to WarMUX, Hedgewars or other artillery games, but the gravity force and direction depends on the mass nearby, similarly to WarHeads (1997). It is optimized for mobile game consoles like the GP2X, Open Pandora or GCW Zero, so it doesn't make use of the mouse even on the PC. Hase features:

  • Awesome mix of real time and turn based action
  • 20 unique weapons
  • Arbitrary number of characters per team
  • Hotseat play with an arbitrary count of players
  • Also network play, even mixed with hotseat play
  • 25 different spritesets to choose your character from
  • Masses of particles, which are also influenced by gravity
  • An action point based system to use stronger or more weapons per turn
  • Different randomly dropped items to spice things up

This mode requires a slower and more precise rhythm to achieve success. The game features a sampled version of the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike track "The Final Rewind" by Tryad.

Letson has since started work on the tactical role playing game Heart of Gold, though the project is now on hiatus.

Linux Air Combat (LAC) is a combat flight simulator set in the World War 2 era. It descended from GL-117, but a full rewrite has transformed it from game to simulator. It contains 54 planes in offline tutorial missions or in one of 10 multiplayer internet missions on a free server. Joystick, mouse, or gamepads are supported as input. It handles inter-player text messaging, VoIP via Mumble, and text-to-speech via espeak. Although full source code is published for those that want to compile it, LAC is also available pre-compiled in the well-known "AppImage" format for immediate use on X-86 hardware without compiling and with no need to install any prerequisite libraries. Because LAC is coded for high efficiency, it runs well even on inexpensive Linux computers like the Raspberry Pi.
