Xonotic is a GPLv2-licenced first-person shooter, a fork of the GPL-version of Nexuiz. The game runs on the Darkplaces engine, based on Quake 1's engine. Gameplay is also based on Quake, but Xonotic adds some unique touches. The gameplay is very fast-paced, and includes and encourages a form of bunny hopping as well as rocket jumping (in Xonotic "laser jumping" is more common). The art is mostly futuristic, but unofficial maps exist in a variety of styles.
There are 16 different game modes (including the classics: deathmatch, team deathmatch and capture the flag), 16 weapons with secondary fires, 18 official maps (and a lot of unofficial maps), and a complex HUD editor that lets you tailor the HUD to your exact preference.
