Linux 3D game client released under GPL

Author: JT Smith

Anonymous Reader writes, "The graphical Starship Traders game client was released today under the GPL. It had only been released as a Linux binary in the past and has not yet been compiled for any other operating system. The client gives players a heads-up display and a 3D view of the objects in their sector of space.

The source code is all C code and uses the OpenGL-like Mesa3D library as well as the related GLUT and GLU libraries. The only other requirements are the X Window libraries and gcc."
