Name        : tremulous
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 1.2.0
Release     : 0.5.beta1.fc17
URL         : http://tremulous.net
Summary     : First Person Shooter game based on the Quake 3 engine
Description :
Tremulous is a free, open source game that blends a team based FPS with elements
of an RTS. Players can choose from 2 unique races, aliens and humans.
Players on both teams are able to build working structures in-game like an RTS.
These structures provide many functions, the most important being spawning.
The designated builders must ensure there are spawn structures or other players
 will not be able to rejoin the game after death. Other structures provide
automated base defense (to some degree), healing functions and much more...

Player advancement is different depending on which team you are on.
As a human, players are rewarded with credits for each alien kill.
These credits may be used to purchase new weapons and upgrades from the Armoury
The alien team advances quite differently. Upon killing a human foe,
the alien is able to evolve into a new class. The more kills gained the more
powerful the classes available.

The overall objective behind Tremulous is to eliminate the opposing team.
This is achieved by not only killing the opposing players but also
removing their ability to respawn by destroying their spawn structures.
