No Time, Nexuiz, Rcov, Democracy Player

No. Time. To. Blog. But these few lines I wanted to post nevertheless: there's some neat new packages in Debian since today: Nexuiz (nice ego shooter), rcov (code coverage for Ruby), and Democracy Player (RSS video downloader/viewer for videoblogs, packaged by yours truly, as promised).

That's all.

Nexuiz - a fast-paced, GPL'd ego shooter

Although I'm not a "gamer", I enjoy playing computer games from time to time. First-person shooters are especially well-suited for relaxing after a long and exhausting day ;-)

IMHO a very good choice, if you're looking for a fun Free Software first-person shooter running on Linux, is Nexuiz.

Nexuiz

  • is GPL'd (and not only the code, but also the data!)
  • is based on the Darkplaces engine, which in turn is based on the Quake engine
  • should be packaged for Debian sooner or later
  • has an unpronouncable name, which is always a bonus ;-)

Nexuiz version 1.5 has recently been released, which features new maps, new characters, better AI and lots more. Check it out!
