In game screenshot

Changes from previous release:
  •  Fix previous release bug, that prevent level from loading. 
  •  Switch from quakeforge engine into darkplaces, which give more modern graphic under recent computer while still maintaining backward compatibility with older computers.
  •   Now the game is playable on the following OS: Window$, Linux-32,Linux 64 bits and Mac OS. 
With this changes I hope to make the game playable not only for kids in developping world where they need it the most.
But also to make it as a tool for rising awareness in other countries who don't suffer from war, landmines and conflict about their problems and possibly rise funds to support demining operation and risk education to children.
