Players earn resources for themselves and their team via aggression.
Unvanquished traces its game-play lineage from Tremulous, which is an open-source game that has had over 3.3 million downloads. The current gameplay and game resources are under the CC BY-SA 2.5 Creative Commons license whilst the daemon engine is under the GPL.

Unvanquished is developed by a team of volunteers who release a new Alpha on the first Sunday of every month.
Development began the summer of 2011, with the first alpha version being released on February 29, 2012.
The daemon engine is a fork of the OpenWolf engine combined with features from other quake-derived engines such as Xreal and ET-XreaL. Its development is now proceeding in its own path from its predecessors.
In version 0.42 the Unvanquished developers managed to separate the game's engine code from the game's code by teaming up with developers of Xonotic.
