Limit Load, new arcade combat flight simulator

Stealth development might not be very "open-sourceish", but it sometimes makes for some nice surprises in our project showcase forum.This time it was the completely new open-source game Limit Load, self described as:A cockpit flight game that is more of an arcade than a sim. The game is built on the Panda3D game engine. It is similar to the ancient games like the classic Wings or the very good Strike Commander. The story and the atmosphere are important elements of the game, so a lot of focus is placed on that too.Here is some in-game action and it seems quite polished already for such a new game:Licensing of assets is still a bit of a grey area it seems, but they are fully aware of it:The game code is licensed under GPL 3, and custom-made game assets under CC-by-SA 4.0. Some of the assets were taken from "free" (as in "not sure in which way") sources on the Internet, so their licensing situation is unclear. Eventually these should be cleared for use or replaced.So where is my VR kit? :D This post was retrieved from freegamer.blogspot.com.
