First Person Shooter

Average Rating


Ratings closed


Red Eclipse is a fun-filled new take on the casual first person arena shooter, built as a total conversion of Cube Engine 2, which lends itself toward a balanced gameplay, with a general theme of agility in a variety of environments. It features: Parkour, impulse boosts, dashing, and other tricks. Favourite game modes with an array of mutators and variables. A built-in editor lets you create your own maps cooperatively online.

The project is a Free and Open Source game, built on Cube Engine 2 using SDL and OpenGL which allows it to be ported to many platforms; you can download a package for Windows, GNU/Linux, BSD, and OSX, or grab a development copy from our Subversion repository and live on the bleeding edge. In a true open source by the people for the people nature, we try to work closely with the gaming and open source communities to provide a better overall experience, aiming to create a game environment that is fun and easy to play, while still having elements to master.

I got this one question, though. Why did they got rid of campaign mode? I was just wondering.

This is Cube 2 Engine probably at its best, and much more user-friendly.

It's being updated everyday. But yeah, moddb's downloads only cover 1.1 and 1.2 :/
Try to use the SVN version to see the new maps and such.

Is there no Windows build available from Desura? The "Full EXE Installer" under downloads only contains the Linux version of the game.

It was really popular among Linux gamers until Steam came out for Linux; I haven't played it much since then myself.
