The basic idea...

"The basic idea behind open source is very simple. When programmers on the Internet can read, redistribute, and modify the source for a piece of software, it evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing...

Let's begin the WAR of Mascots from UniX! They'll represent your favorite free software projects while battling it out in the arena using dynamite, grenades, baseball bats and other bazookas...

Exterminate your opponent in a 2D environment with toon-style scenery.

Each player controls the teams of his choice (tux, gnu, firefox, wilber,...) and must destroy his adversaries using more or less usual weapons.

Although a minimum of strategy is required to win, WarMUX is firstly a "convivial mass murder" game where, turn by turn, each member of each team attempts to cause a maximum of damage to his opponents.

WarMUX is free (under GPL license) and free (neither cash nor ads).
