Yo Frankie - Video game made with Blender

You may have noticed, if you've been to my site often, that I have a fondness for both video games and for open source software. So when something comes out like Blender that is completely awesome I talk about it.

Well, there is a video game being developed using Blender and Crystal Space (both free open source) called 'Yo Frankie!' based off one of the characters from the 'Big Bunny' animation.

It looks fantastic and I hope to try it out soon.

In the mean time, check it out. They released these Wallpapers for you.

As well as made this really slick video that shows you some of the game play. Very cool looking - especially for free software.
