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:
- Create a fun open-source game for everyone to enjoy
- Prove that libre creative tools suffice to make a good game – we use only open-source software in the production
- Have fun, get to know each other and grow together with the project
- Push the envelope of open-source FPS games in regards to a coherent design, style, technology and overall quality
- Enable the game to be playable on lower-end computers, but provide higher fidelity for those who have more powerful hardware
- Allow joining the game from a web browser for quick sessions, as well as providing downloadable package for residential or portable usage
- Actively help the development of Godot engine and other open-source tools that we depend on
- Facilitate 3rd party content via mods
- Provide optional online accounts to securely store user data and protect their in-game identity
