Parsec GPL’d

May 14th, 2003 by Alkini

As we previously announced (back in January), the multiplayerspace-shooter Parsec was to be open-sourced, and as of earlier this month, the code has been released under the GPL.As is becoming a relatively popular trend, the artwork and other non-code elements of the game are not being released under a Free license, but instead are restricted in various ways,including not being free to commercial projects.Parsec has been around since early ’99, so it has a certain maturity to it, but end-user features like Internet gameplay are still missing. This new GPL’dproject is now being referred to OpenParsec and the project (including CVS) are being hosted atSourceforge. There are no bundled releases of the code yet, but it’s available via CVS at theOpenParsec site.

    These guys swore up and down that there was no way to produce a quality game in an open environment. I guess that means it isn’t possible to produce a quality game in a closed environment either. Parsec is the game of the future! (and it always will be).

    I’m not a real big multiplayer enthusiast, and I tend to like single-player games a lot better. Now, an Elite style game with multiplayer elements might be cool, but I don’t think thats what Parsec is about. I’ve been following their news for many years now, and haven’t tried it yet, and don’t really intend to. I’m a lot more interested in VegaStrike, but can’t get the latest source to compile in Linux for the life of me.
