Space Hulk is a great board game of Games Workshop in the world of Warhammer 40000. This is a two player turn-based game where one play the 'Marine', the other play the alien called 'Genestealer'. If you need more infos on the game, you can get the rulebook or some links on Space Hulk

This video game is a complete conversion of the board game with the 2nd edition rules. Well, I know there is some fans discussion to know whether the 1st or the 2nd edition of the rules is the better. For my part, I only played the 2nd edition, that's the edition this game is based on.

The project is aiming at providing a way to play SpaceHulk on your computer exactly as you could do it with the real board version but with some extra : you can play via network (no need to have two players in the same room) synchronized or asynchronized (via e-mail), and you will even be able to play solo against an artificial intelligent opponent. Currently, only HotSeat and Play-By-Email mode game are implemented. You can see some screenshots or download it.

This game is developed as a free software with the GPL license. We always need some volonteers to help us on coding, bug reports, creating new skins or new levels, writing documentations, maintaining web sites, etc. See the development site for more infos.

What's New in This Release:
Problem with diceroll.
BF: Problem when transmitting genestealer orientation during creation.
BF: Mail sent with n instead of rn (fix from Unifex).
BF: segfault with newby question in pbem.
