Iron Fist is a Free and Open Source game, using SDL and OpenGL which
allows it to be ported to many platforms; you can download it for both PC
(Windows, Linux, BSD) and Mac. You can also obtain it through our
subversion repository and live on the bleeding edge of development.
--About the Project
The game is a single-player and multi-player first-person shooter, built as
a total conversion of Cube Engine 2, and is released and developed under
the permission and concent of the Red Eclipse team.
After many years of development, Iron Fist had become outdated in both the
development and features which it offered. Many bugs were present in the
code base which had been used at the time and it soon became apparent that
in order to provide a better overall experience, a new release must be
completed. To that effect Iron Fist was recreated and the decision was
made to build it upon the first-person ego-shooter, Red Eclipse version 1.2.
It was a difficult choise to make considering all the work that went into
the development of the origional Iron Fist, but was one that had to be made.
The Iron Fist team wishes the best to the Red Eclipse team and thanks
them greatly for their support. Iron Fist is a development of Cure
The project works independently, and as of now is not involved with the gaming
and open source communities. It is simply a conceptual production and is a
product of trial and error.
Arcade gameplay, Realistic graphics! During the development of Iron Fist, the
concept of the project has changed severely from its original concept, the
story line changing to fit the game, embodying an arcade feel coupled along
side realistic graphics. As the game matured, and more was achievable, it
turned around and the game began to conform to the story. As the two begin to
balance out, it will be quite interesting where the development will lead to
Today, Iron Fist continues to push the boundaries of Cube 2 gaming. This project
is completely open source and free to use. The concept of the game, however,
such as the story, is not open source. Otherwise Iron Fist is strict on
maintaining an open source policy. Nonetheless, take caution and make sure
to read the readmes when required.
Among the features are all the builtin (online and cooperative) editing,
scripting, and rendering capabilities of the amazing Cube Engine 2, in
* Unique, original, and fun gameplay, storyline, theme, artwork, and content.
Pushing the boundaries of open source first person gaming.
* More configurable, providing an extensive range of world variables for
mappers and game variables for players/admin to control every aspect.
* Play deathmatch, instagib, ctf, duel, lms, or use the select range of
mutators and variables to create your own.
* Large arsenal weapons, each with its own distinct personality, pros,
and cons, providing great dynamic gameplay.
* Strong artificial intelligence (A.I. or "Bots") capable of participating
within all modes of its environment, even online.
* Improved editing displays and capabilities, with automatic map package
creation and online transfers completely transparent to the user.
* Enhanced engine systems, with extra goodies like stereoscopic or anaglyph
view modes, and unique mouse settings.
* The main adventure component of Iron Fist will always be Free and
Open Source Software, and you can contribute to it too.
