Rise to the top of your own gang of thugs, and then take on the street’s top dog, the Kingpin. You wake up in a dumpster only to realize you’re now in a violent area where only the tough survive. Grab a lead pipe and prepare to make your way to the top of this urban nightmare.
Barren Meadow is a single-player unit for Kingpin following most of the original design choices: it puts the emphasis on shooting, rewards exploration, has a hub connecting multiple action maps and many options to defeat your adversaries (from weapon modifications to hirable henchmen). It features spooky environments and foes, ideal for a spooky Halloween fix. The campaign isn't that long and will last you for an hour to an hour and a half (maybe more on harder difficulties).
No one likes a broken record, but this time it's for a special occasion. Barren Meadow features new content and fixes some of Kingpin's awkward aspects (nothing game changing). The source code used to build this mod isn't exactly identical to the one used to compile the original game's DLL, so there might be a few issues here and there that were not in the original.
I could see myself working on this thing for the next ten years of my life, but it's really not my intention (no one should have to bear endless "early access" development time). Some content was cut to finish on time and new ideas had to be put aside, but it doesn't matter. The whole unit works from start to finish, is stable enough to be released and polished enough to be fun (huge thanks to the play testers for pointing out the most glaring issues, I hope we got 'em all). It is very unlikely a patch will ever be released, unless a completely game-breaking bug is discovered (on the plus side, the sources are available so you're not entirely out of options).
As an added bonus it should be possible to play the original campaign with the new mod features: open the console and type "map sr1" to start the game as usual. A modification was made last-minute regarding enemies opening doors; it shouldn't break compatibility... at least I hope it doesn't (ran out of time to test it).
I think that's about it. I hope you'll enjoy the mod at least as much as I enjoyed working on it. Have a good one and take care!

Highest Rated (3 agree) 10/10
I hate to review my favorite games, that`s why I give them 10. But this one deserves a review because it`s special... Kingpin is built with id Tech 2 engine (Quake and Quake II are based upon a same code. Doom is id Tech 1). The game has strong mature content, but that`s not all great about it. Let`s call this came Strife in Quake II engine! You start the game with a intro sequence, the story is nothing special. It`s typical seeking for vengeance. You can interact with NPCs with Positive and Negative…
