    Savage: The Battle for Newerth
    Game Type: Multiplayer FPS/RTS/RPG
    License: Freeware

    As of September 1st, 2006, s2games released their gem, Savage: The Battle for Newerth, as freeware for Linux, Windows and Mac users. Though, don't go onto their web site in hopes of finding a link for your obscure platform of choice, for the Windows installer is only what you will find. To obtain a copy for Linux (same files should work for *BSD), head on over to the links provided below. And after you have downloaded all three of the files, head on over to this thread, in the RTS forums located here at Linux-gamers.net for more in-depth information on how to work around a couple problems, and also how to install the game to get that blank slate of a server list filled with some good games.


    Note: You can use all zeros in your registration key, no servers will check it :)

    Alien Arena 2007
    Game Type: Multiplayer FPS
    License: GPL v2

    Do you like fast paced deathmatch? How about rich, colorful, arcadelike atmospheres? How about...retro Sci Fi? Then you're going to love what Alien Arena 2007 has in store for you! This game combines some of the very best aspects of such games as Quake III and Unreal Tournament and wraps them up with a retro alien theme, while adding tons of original ideas to make the game quite unique.

    Savage 2 - A Tortured Soul

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Savage is an RTS/FPS/RPG hybrid. The setting is a post-apocalyptic world where the Legion of Man and the Beast Horde battle for supremacy. There are two teams in a game of Savage2, both of which will expand to capture resources, kill enemy players and NPCs, and build up their bases to unlock new technology or magic to try to crush the enemy base. Victory is achieved in Savage 2 when you destroy the enemy command center. Part of what makes Savage 2 unique is the role of "commander" - a unit who plays from the RTS perspective and helps organize his team's efforts to defeat the enemy. Commanders can build structures, buff allies, debuff enemies and most importantly play as master tactician with a great view of the battlefield. A lot has been done to ensure that the commander is not overpowered or able to ruin a game for his team.

    Savage 2 Now FREE -- This is not a demo with time restrictions or spawn time increases. This is the full version of the game absolutely FREE.
    Clients available for Linux, Mac, and Windows.
