http://tremulous.net/Tremulous is a ﬁrst person shooter featuring two opposing teams, humans and aliens. Both teams are able to build structures such as spawn points, which are vital to their victory. The goal of Tremulous is to eliminate the opposing team and all of their spawn points.
Each team in Tremulous differs fundamentally from the other. The aliens are class based, with two classes initially available; the alien team’s builder, known as the Granger, and the Dretch, the weakest offensive alien. The aliens are awarded frags for killing their foes which may be used to evolve into stronger classes, capable of greater and more varied maneuvers. In contrast the human team is upgrade based, receiving credits for kills that may be exchanged at an Armoury structure for new weapons, armour and equipment. Two such upgrades are available for free; a riﬂe and a construction kit, used for building structures.
During a game of Tremulous, each team occupies one of three stages of development. These stages are reached by accruing more than a speciﬁc total number of kills by the whole team. Each new stage unlocks classes, upgrades and buildable structures. If one team reaches a stage signiﬁcantly earlier than the other team, it stands a better chance of defeating the opposing team.
