Hello ladies and gents,

I've uploaded a video compilation taken from the closed beta testing session conducted on the 27th of Feb, check it out below. The test was a great success, a big thanks to those involved!


Thanks to this beta session, a number of modifications have been made to weapons and maps. A new update will be coming shortly outlining the changes. Closed Beta testing will continue in a few weeks and I'll be sure to upload videos from that session for you to check out as well.

Thanks guys,
Michael

Damn doesn't seem lovely when you see Linux at supported platforms? The game looks like a nice fast phase FPS. Textures and animations look very nice for an engine as old as Quake Engine.
