Oolite is a space sim game, incorporating trade, battles with pirates, bounty hunting, secret missions and more. It features high-quality sound and smooth, fast three dimensional graphics, written specifically for Mac OS X using Cocoa and OpenGL. And it's free. Oolite was written by Giles Williams (previously known for the puzzle game JewelToy) who was inspired by the work of David Braben and Ian Bell with Elite, however this work is an entirely independent interpretation of the original game. Oolite benefited from the responses of the many people who volunteered to test the game while it was under construction. One of my main priorities for development was to separate the game engine from the game materials (the graphics, models, AI, text-strings and so on.). This means Oolite will be easy for anyone to pick up and modify, and I might even offer some new game materials (bonus-packs) as shareware. The game and source-code are offered for free under the BSD license.
