Liblast – Godot Based Open Source Team Fortress Style Game

Liblast is an interesting open source project using entirely free tools, the center of which is the Godot game engine. It’s a community base project and the most impressive part is that the skeleton of a game is all there. It has matchmaking, multiplayer games with multiple weapons and maps.

The goals of the project are as follows:

Primary goals:

  1. Create a fun open-source game for everyone to enjoy
  2. Prove that libre creative tools suffice to make a good game – we use only open-source software in the production
  3. Have fun, get to know each other and grow together with the project

Secondary goals:

  1. Push the envelope of open-source FPS games in regards to a coherent design, style, technology and overall quality
  2. Enable the game to be playable on lower-end computers, but provide higher fidelity for those who have more powerful hardware
  3. Allow joining the game from a web browser for quick sessions, as well as providing downloadable package for residential or portable usage
  4. Actively help the development of Godot engine and other open-source tools that we depend on
  5. Facilitate 3rd party content via mods
  6. Provide optional online accounts to securely store user data and protect their in-game identity
