The thing I'm wondering is how they're selling an arena shooter for only $10. Are they going to do DLC or something?

Nexuiz was quite popular and someone thought he could cash in for a few quick bucks.

The most confusing thing is that Nexuiz was actually a game that used a modified version of the Quake engine and was published under the GPL.
Then the name was licensed to Illfonic and they scrapped the engine and the artstyle and replaced it with something different.

... what the hell?

Never good to name a product something people don't know how to pronounce, or doesn't roll off the tongue easily.
