It's been almost 2 months now that we've been walking little by little through a extensive list of FPS games for Linux, many of them from retro and old school style. Many of them original or independent, and others that were born as a modification/update (fork) of other games, such as some versions of Doom or Quake.

And today, we will explore one not so old, but still active and based on Quake II, called "D-Day: Normandy".
