Registration Details

  • Name: nvsts
  • System Name:  nvsts
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v3 or later (Manual, font and sounds have different licenses from the source, which is GPLv3orlater.

In the COPYING there is the full description. In short: manual is free, the font is a DejaVu (thus is free), sounds are in the public domain.)


nvsts is a video game that plays like the multi-directional shooter Geometry Wars. The game idea is pretty easy: kill everything and don't die ;)

As far as I known there is no other free software similar to this one, so I hope someone will eventually enjoy my game.

It is written in C++, using SDL's OpenGL. Without a GPU it will be really slow (even though there isn't much eye candy).

Other Software Required:

SDL 1.2 + LGPL + http://www.libsdl.org/

SDL_mixer 1.2 + LGPL + http://www.libsdl.org/projects/SDL_mixer/

SDL_ttf 2.0 + LGPL + http://www.libsdl.org/projects/SDL_ttf/

Spirit Parser Framework + Boost Software License, Version 1.0 + http://spirit.sourceforge.net/

These dependencies' dependencies are also free software.

Other Comments:

In the README file there is a useful comment for testing the game. Essentially, to test it without installing use "./configure --without-install ; make" and run the game from the src/ subdirectory.
If the --without-install flag wasn't specified the executable would try to load files from the /usr that wouldn't exists (due to not installing the game with "make install").

file #16345:  nvsts-0.4.09.tar.gz added by crazycraft (338KiB - application/x-gzip - A new version. I've uploaded it because there is a license change (see COPYING) and also the dependencies are now different (see README). In the ChangeLog there is a bunch of comments on the stuff that has been added/fixed/changed.)
