As many of you know, we originally planned a single player mode for WoP, but unfortunately for a lack of strength and motivation that mode won't be completed. The single player concept just kept growing in size and at the end it was just too complex to implement. We would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about what we had planned and show you some of the work we already had put into it. For the single player we didn't only plan new maps, but also new gametypes and new enemies (some of which had been implemented already too). We'd like to give you a nice insight to the start of the single player story with the following video from 2009. Please remember that what is shown here was far from finished.


The story is quickly told. Padman comes home from his "superhero"-work and discoveres that PadGirl has been kidnapped by the mad scientist Dr. Pad. He has taken PadGirl through some teleportation device to an unknown location and Padman tries to track him down. Unfortunately Padman doesn't end up at the right location immediately and has to fight his way through various levels until he can rescue PadGril from the clutches of Dr.Pad.

It's obviously very unfortunate that all the work we had already done has to be thrown away now, but sometimes that's how it turns out. We're really sorry.

Apart from the cancelled single player mode, development still continues. World of Padman 1.5.2 beta is out for you to test and participate in development. The following tutorial video helps you installing the game. Check it out.

Sad that you canceled the Singleplayer mode. Awesome "new" atmosphere not like in a standart FPS like COD. There are so many details for the quake 3 engine. I like the color changes from room to room. Sad you canceled it. :/

Well that single player really interested me. The starting area looks so cool and as said above, the color changes are so impressive and the story, as simple as it seems to be, sounds really nice and funny. The comic book hero like story is what most interested me, as for the gameplay on the first level it seems like Unreal Tournament or games like it, where they give you a multiplayer game mode for the singleplayer, you could use something a bit more catchy and make a whole new singleplayer game mode.

But well, it is really sad that it got cancelled. You could start working at it again, it has lots of potential.

While I can understand the feeling wanting to show stuff, not just letting it go to waste, I think it was an unnecessary move.

Basically just showing us something we'll never have, y'know?
