The game you are trying to view has ceased development and consequently been archived.

Dave3D is a Free Software content replacement for the D*k*3D Source code released under the GPL.
The from-scratch 'replacement' will be loose as possible to not trespass onto any
lineness territories. No lines from popular or famous cult movies, no
lizards, and the hero's similarities ends at the color of the blue
pants. There will still be "chicks" however.

The art direction will be taken to a 1994-1995 level with overused
untextured shiny CGI and fair amounts of pixel pushery. The audio will
have a similar direction with memory efficient low Hz VOC format
sounds, though the MIDI music will hopefully be less boring. Combining
all this will recreate the 'charm' of the original game, without taking
anything from the original game :)

Due to the license clash of the Build engine (non-commercial internet
distribution only) vs. the D3D source (GNU GPL version 2), there will
be no bundled releases of the data with any engine. It aims to be
compatible with any port of the game - including the original DOS

this has been archived, because 3drealms does not appreciate the project (and also attempted to claim ownership over our original works)

I'll download it for sure. I got into gaming with graphics like these. As they always say, can't judge a book by its cover. In this case, a game by its graphics.
