Duke Nukem Forever is part four in a series of PC games featuring Duke Nukem as the hero. Parts one (Duke Nukem) and two (Duke Nukem 2) were sidescrollers/platform games, and part three, Duke Nukem 3D, was an FPS. Duke Nukem 3D became one of the top-selling games of all time, and is a very important part of FPS gaming history; it is one of the few "legendary" titles, together with Quake and Doom. The game is one of the most sophisticated FPS games ever. It features everything the Unreal engine has, but also features things like LOD, skeletal animation, and motion capture, for an optimal playing experience.
The Nebula Device is a free multiplatform game engine currently running under Linux and Windows. It uses OpenGL and/or Direct3D for rendering and Tcl/Tk for scripting. Living C++ objects can be browsed and manipulated at runtime from the builtin console, or remotedly from a minimal terminal based console app. A powerful channel animation system allows any floating point attribute to be animated, and specialized animator classes allow things like realtime bone animation with weighted vertex skin.
War! Age of Imperialism is the computer version of the award winning board game from Eagle Games. Up to 8 players vie to create the most powerful empire on Earth.

The Torque Network Library is a robust, secure, and easy-to-use cross-platform C++ networking API designed for high performance simulations and games. It features a UDP- based connection architecture with DoS prevention functionality, different types of data guarantee, bit stream compression, server object replication and updating, and a simple, highly space efficient RPC mechanism. It includes a deterministic application journaling replay function for eliminating hard to find networking bugs.
Quake 2 is a commercial 3D action game from id software, the makers of Doom. It is a shooter with a first-person perspective, in Doom's tradition. The game comes with three display methods. Anybody can run it on a virtual console (using SVGAlib) or under X. If you've got a 3D accelerator board based on the Voodoo chipset from 3dfx Quake 2 can use it to improve the display quality.
WorldStation is a Java-based control panel to control the Ten-Tec DSP RX-320 shortwave receiver. The RX-320 is a "black box" radio which has no front-panel and is controlled via your PC's serial port. With an appropriate antenna, the RX-320 will allow you to listen to thousands of broadcasts from around the world. WorldStation features integrated Xbase frequency database support and advanced scanning to allow the user to visualize the radio spectrum.
