Damnatio is a game about friendship, love, ponies and cuddly little beings called ... Wait, no no no! It's a hardcore 2D multiplayer shooter with fully destructible environment, neat line of sight system, custom game engine and packed with features. Think about 2D Worms + Counter-Strike + unique features and you are pretty close. Currently supported game modes are Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Demolition (plant a bomb).

Plans for the future include single player, better sound, new weapons, better bots (teach them how to use all weapons), new maps and new game modes.

Single player is currently under development and it will be mission based.

This big patch features a new and improved bot gameplay. Bots are now better at moving and use many new weapons. Mines, big lasers, small lasers, light balls, grenades etc.

The focus was to make bots more like human players, and it certainly feels like that. Also there is now a lot more destruction because of this as the gameplay video demonstrates. See you in game!
