Sauerbraten is a free, multiplayer/singleplayer first-person shooter (FPS), built as a major redesign of the Cube FPS. Much like the original Cube, the aim of this game is not necessarily to produce the most features and eye candy possible, but rather to allow map/geometry editing to be done dynamically in-game, and to create fun gameplay and an elegant engine.

The engine supporting the game is entirely original in code and design, and its code is Open Source (ZLIB license, read the docs for more on how you can use the engine).

In addition to the FPS game which is in a very playable state, the engine is more...

What's New

Excellent game. Lots of fun, especially in multiplayer mode.

Good controls, very nice levels, and the whole playing experience is just great fun. Recommended and indeed incredible that it is free.

Minor gripe: plays fine but the application crashes when quitting (on Mac 10.6.4).

Phenomenal! Unbelievable that such a game is free. They have added in the latest release a bunch of new maps, and most of the servers available under the multiplayer menu have added these maps to their servers. The ONLY reason I have given Stability a 4 is that when quitting the game, it crashes. Every time. Other than that?

Absolutely great! I have had no flaws with this game whatsoever, and it never ceases to amaze me. It is great playing on oversees servers because there is no click-delay between click and shoot, which is original compared to other FPS-style games. Everything about this game is awesome (especially the music! I love the music. I don't know who wrote it, or who has the rights to the music, but its incredible! The drummer is fantastic). There is only one thing which bothers me slightly: is there any way of changing the crosshair? I have managed to resize it with the crosshairsize N code, but it would be great if we can choose colours and design for it.

All-in-all, an incredible game. I was very surprised to see that a game of this stature is free!

The .dmg appears to be corrupt, and fails to mount. I get the message "No mountable file systems" in the Finder using 10.4.11.

I downloaded it from the San Jose, CA - North America mirror, and the disk image mounted just fine.

Here's the direct link to the file at the mirror I accessed:

The problem is not with the .dmg. I've had the same issue with some downloads under 10.3.9. I downloaded this under 10.4.11 and it mounts just fine.

You might want to run diskutility and check your file system. Perhaps repairing permissions will solve the problem.

Also, try downloading the .dmg again. If you can, try using another machine...

This engine looks really promising, and it keeps improving. To fans of open source FPS games: might want to check out Tremulous (www.tremulous.net).

Great FPS. Still in development, but already looks really good. Nice multiplayer map editing too.

When starting the game after moving the app to my App Folder The error message says I should put it in a path that does not have "weird characters" Very Strange!!! I then moved it to my desktop but I got the same error message,I really don't understand this message and I would like some help as I can't run the game.

Possibly you copied the sauerbraten.app without the data files, or changed the folder structure around it... Post support queries to: http://www.cubeengine.com/forum.php4
