    Honestly, most of these Open Source games are a disappointment. I think the game be widely tested, have open source, several contributors and be cross-platform, it's a game, at least functional. I do not say stable for all platforms, but with a **minimal functionality**. I downloaded a HUGE file, 1 GB, and the game just did not work. To a file of this size, you should have the good sense to create an application to test the configuration BEFORE the user download 1 GB and receive an error message. Another disappointing fact was the installer ask me to disable my anti-virus. I will not do. I'll never shut off my security to install software in test stage. -------- Sinceramente, a maioria desses jogos Open Source são uma decepção.Espera-se que, pelo fado de o jogo ser amplamente testado, ter o código aberto, vários contribuidores e ser multiplataforma, que seja um jogo, no mínimo, funcional. Não digo estável para todas as plataformas, mas com uma **funcionalidade mínima**. Baixei um arquivo ENORME, 1 GB, e o jogo simplesmente não funcionou. Pra um arquivo desse tamanho, vocês deveriam ter o bom senso de criar um aplicativo para testar a configuração ANTES de o jogador baixar 1 GB e receber uma mensagem de erro. Outro fato decepcionante foi o instalador pedir para eu desativar o meu anti-virus. Jamais farei. Nunca desabilitarei meus softwares de segurança para instalar um software em estágio beta.
