Free and open source party game Starship Olympics hits Alpha

By - | Views: 22,718

Need a fresh party game with simple controls and plenty of mini-games to play? Starship Olympics is free, open source and worth a go. They recently released the first Alpha build, which comes with a whole bunch of improvements and overhauls compared to their earlier releases I covered here some time ago. It was originally called SuperStarfighter.

The idea is nice and simple and doesn't need much explaining: in local co-op or against the AI, you play through various mini-games in a different random order each time. The new version offers improved graphics, the overall feel of it should be better and they did some user interface improvement too.

Just a quick tip to try it out, hopefully some readers find it interesting.

See more on and GitHub.

Ooh, this looks like it might be my sort of thing, and now I'm kind of surprised that I hadn't heard of it already! Thanks for the heads-up, Liam!
