Congratulation, free software FPS fans – id Tech 4 is now available under the GPL, as promised. Since a pretty large portion of the major open source FPS games are based on id Tech 3, I guess we’re going to see some news from that direction soon. I’m not much of an FPS fan myself, but they’re still nice to have around.
One day, when I start working more with 3D, I might get more interested in that stuff – I think engines like that might have some potential beyond walking around and shooting people, and someone needs to do it. Portal was a great start – we need more of these. Hopefully someone else will do it before I’ll have to.
