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.
