One issue I have in finding a FOSS game to play is that many of them are online games where I prefer single player games with a story. Obviously that adds extra cost in terms of AI; writers; etc so it's harder to pull off on the shoe string budget of a FOSS game. Genre wise I prefer first and therd person shooters/action games; platformers; adventure games and RPGs (turn based or real time). Any ideas ? I think Tuxemon will be up my alley when it is further along and I have Retux as well as Lugaru HD on my backlog that I will be starting soon.
Tanks of Freedom is a turn based strategy with a longer single-player campaign.
Maybe Flare is something for you? A single player RPG with isometric graphics, but it's a bit tough to get progress (both story and fighting level).
Here's a list of libre RPGs, but I am not sure about the quality of those games:
I think there are several libre ego shooters out there. But it's not my genre. Same with platformers.
Maybe the platformer SuperTux:
Very few libre ego shooters with single-player campaigns, apart from Freedoom and Anarch sadly
Flare and Tanks of Freedom look like their up my alley, thanks for the reccomendations ! Super Tux is on my list but i'm hoping to wait until it is closer to being done.
Seahorse Adventures is a platformer. I have a updated version on github that runs on python3.
Witch's Blast is a fun game but not much in way of story. Link is to my fork. It adds gamerzilla support.
Marvellous Inc. is a zach-like game with a story. It is available for purchase from Steam or you can get the source and run it. Here is a link to my fork that runs on latest love engine.
Battle for Wesnoth is a TBS Game and has some great single player campaigns
Endless Sky is a pure singleplayer 2D Space Sim
I could probably remember a lot more examples by simply looking at https://debtags.debian.org/search/?wl=&q=game&qf=default which is basically a variant of how I spent shitload of hours in solo, FOSS games. I like Solo games, especially solo RPG, but there are not much nowadays, even big corps likely considers them to cost too much to produce.
Heh!!! SIlly me!
freem There was a lemmings clone, too, which was interesting, but I don't remember the name
There's also Pingus but I like Lix a lot better.
If we are talking puzzle games, Me and My Shadow is good.
I had an idea:
Maybe text adventures are for you? They are mostly not FOSS, but they are often gratis. Some players think they are boring, other people find them exciting. They definitely have a story.
