Orxonox is a computer game - Orxonox is a spacecraft shooter that plays in the post-apocalyptic world of our future. Humanity struggles to survive under the threat of wars, economic and ecological disasters. A lot of people search for their luck in the vast space of the solar system. But the human race faces extinction when they realize they are not alone in the galaxy. The Noxons, an evil alien species, believes the human race must be destroyed to free themselves from their cruel god Nox.

Orxonox is an open source project - We started the project in May 2004 as a two-man team and have written large parts of our engine by ourselves. As the open source community provides many excellent libraries, we try to incorporate the best suited libraries and focus on the game mechanics. That's why in 2007 we decided to exchange our own graphics engine with the open source engine  Ogre. Find out more about us.

Orxonox is a community - For us the community is very important and thus the multi player mode deserves special focus. We work together with the community to develop new game modes. Play with your friends at a LAN party or over the Internet. Our game modes support up to about 16 players and multiple teams. Meet the team.

Become a part of Orxonox and help the development team to create new features (like a first person shooter), levels and content. Write a post in  our forum to tell us about your ideas or read this site to find out about our ideas. Contact us!
