NiL Isn't Liero

NiL (which stands for NiL isn't Liero) is a multi-player game where the objective is to end the life of your opponents. NiL is set in a 2D world much like worms (from team17), but unlike worms it is not turn-based but realtime. NiL is mostly a clone of the old DOS game Liero, but unlike Liero it runs on Linux and is Free. NiL is not yet finished, but the game is already somewhat playable.

        Why doesn't someone update this page I have no idea but it seems this game is living on...

        It's really too bad that this project has died, or seemed to anyway. It's an awesome game, I just wish that it would get developed more. If I had a better background in programming I would probably think about developing it some myself, since it IS opensource, it won't dissapear like the original Liero.

        I agree with my good friend atomice
        Yes, see that subject!

        NiL really is the best thing to happen to the Linux world since ever! Why oh why haven't you made another release in ages. It saddens me incredibly that I haven't had a new release in so long. I lie in bed dreaming of the day when the next version will come out, and sometimes have nightmares that the developer is dead and I will never be able to play again.

        Please oh please make a new release.

        Love James
