Bloom, Anistotropic Filtering, HDR, Bump Mapping, Quake first-person shooter action, the whole nine yards...
... for free.
I gave Nexuiz 2.4 a go and played with it a bit offline. I turned on bloom and HDR as I'm really curious what the devs in Alientrap have come up with their latest version of their freeware first-person shooter. Even ignoring the fact that this game is freeware, this game definitely does not disappoint:
This is one of my favorite shots. It shows a grenade arcing towards a target bathed in the light from plasma fire.
This, catching a plasma bolt full on, this... this is messy.
Another picture with stark contrasts.
An AI adversary misses while a health power-up respawns behind it. I'm holding the Wand of Shotgun Pellets as I jokingly call it. The weapon looks awesome when viewed from the front though.
Gotta love HDR. Too bad it puts me at a disadvantage when playing in multiplayer.
Yep, in multiplayer, you need all the frames you can get. This could happen to you.
Kudos to my wife for taking the screenshots using FRAPS. Thanks for putting up with the Ethan McManus and the Tycho Erasmus Brahe in me. (Grin. Grin.) I am a lucky man.
