Red Alert: A Path Beyond

The Red Alert: A Path Beyond Website offers downloads of the beta client and server for this fan-created freeware game based on Command & Conquer: Renegade, the first-person shooter set in the C&C universe (thanks EvilTimmy). Here's word on the project from the FAQ:

Red alert: A Path Beyond is a first-person shooter based upon Command and Conquer: Red alert. You all remember Westwood, right? So do we. We've been in development for the past three years, and finally we have something to show the general public for it. How neat is that? It's been a year since we announced the changes for the Summer 2007 version of the project, which is being called "Red alert: A Path Beyond: Beta."

We started out as a mod for C&C Renegade, an old game that was very underappreciated by critics and customers alike. Multiplayer was sort of like Battlefield, except that this actually came out before Battlefield and doesn't have really bad bugs and bad netcode. It was fun, but it was a flawed game that had a lot of weird, not-Command-and-Conquer design decisions thanks to it being rushed out the door, such as a plethora of new characters, and the fact that it took about a million bullets to kill someone. We decided to take the basic formula of Renegade and polish the gameplay and graphics (as well as base it on a better title of theirs) so that we could have something that would be what Westwood would have put out if they had more time. We believe we've succeeded. Hopefully you will too.

I love when you purchase a lifetime subscription, and a month later the company is bought out and the new owner tells you you have to purchase a new lifetime subscription for the same product.
