Mac OS X version of prototype 5.4 of Revenge Of The Cats: Ethernet
Revenge Of The Cats: Ethernet is a free experimental online multiplayer FPS with unique gameplay: Alternate between the pure energy "ether form" and the physical manifestation called "CAT". Capture territory and defeat enemies using a multitude of weapons, grenades, and target-seeking discs that can be deflected and steered around corners. Thanks to the territory capturing and the fact that you can only change into CAT form on friendly territory, this game is much deeper than your usual abstract shooter.
Thanks to the donations from people of 15 different countries, the IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign to resurrect ROTC: Ethernet as open-source project has reached its goal. Actual development will start soon, so stay tuned.
Here's a graph showing from which countries the donations to the campaign originated so far:
The campaign has a few more hours to go, so it's still possible to help pad the budget of the game and claim the following perks:
Player / Developer / Supporter (donate $10 or more) [claim this perk]
Sweet Personal Thank You (donate $25 or more) [claim this perk]
In addition to everything from the "Player / Developer / Supporter" perk you'll receive a personal "Thank You" postcard from the developer and a bar of pretty decent Swiss "M-Budget" chocolate. The chocolate, although inexpensive, is hard to obtain otherwise outside Switzerland (being budget and all).
Suggest-A-Name (donate $50 or more) [claim this perk]
You'll get all the other perks plus the opportunity to suggest a name for the game. The final name will be chosen by putting all suggested names to a vote among all the people who have claimed at least one perk.
Stay tuned for further development
