Bug#709137: ITP: freespace2 -- open source implementation of the Freespace 2 game engine
Package name: freespace2
Upstream Author: Freespace2 source code project
Description: open source implementation of the Freespace 2 game engine
FreeSpace is a series of space combat simulation games developed
by Volition, Inc. and published by Interplay Entertainment.
The games take place in the 24th century. Mankind, referred to as
Terrans, has developed means for space traveling, further fueled
by the discovery of subspace which makes interstellar travel not
only possible but also fast and easy. As a result the Terrans have
expanded their territory, eventually encountering another bipedal,
sentient species; the Vasudans. However, due to cultural differences
and difficulties in communicating with each other, the Galactic Terran
Alliance (GTA) and the Parliamentary Vasudan Empire (PVE) end up fighting
a war that lasts for 14 years.
Original game files from CD are needed to play this game.
