From the earliest PadMaps came the mod PadWorld, followed by the next colourful evolution, the World of Padman. Developed and headed by cartoonist and illustrator ENTE, PadWorld Entertainment presents a free ware fun shooter for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, that’s powered by an extended id-Tech3 graphics engine based on the source of ioquake3.

WoP is the domain of ENTE’s comic strip super-hero Padman and his motley crew. It’s their mission to make your game with some seriously addictive fun, whatever your skill level and whatever character role you jump into.

Over the years maps have been revamped, bots improved, killer ducks kept hungry, weapons re-polished and much more, such as new sounds, skins, secrets, effects, and powerups! In all, there are 24 maps. Each supports up to 7 game modes, comprising WoP’s unique Spray Your Color, Last Pad Standing, Big Balloon and of course Capture The Lolly, as well as those old favourite Free For All. Meet scaled-up and richly detailed maps of everyday places where imaginative characters go berserk with an array of colorful plastic weaponry and power-ups. Start rockin’ to the soundtrack of Dieselkopf and Neurological soundtrack and the Pad-Anthem, performed by Green Sun. So grab your earphones.

news 20yearspadmod

It’s hard to believe, but 20 years ago today World of PADMAN was born as a modification for Quake 3 Arena, Happy Birthday! After two and a half years of hard development work, the first beta version was released on June 18th, 2004. It contained 11 maps, six player models with a total of 14 different skins, nine weapons, seven power-ups and the game modes Spray Your Color, Big Balloon and Last Pad Standing. World of PADMAN was subsequently voted Mod of the Week on planetquake.com and was published in international PC games magazines, sometimes with accompanying articles, as well as on DVD.

The development team was already facing big challenges at that time, and it is only thanks to ENTE and a hard core that the development did not die like other mod projects at that time. Without this commitment and passion, World of PADMAN would not exist as an independent game today. You can now read the whole story about the development of the PadMod in detail in our section The WoP Story on our website.

If you want to experience the PadMod again and play it together, you are welcome to do so on Hectic’s server “PadMod | 20th Anniversary”. Instructions on how to get the PadMod running on modern systems can be found on our website. There you will also find a small patch that should make your life easier.

Have fun reading, discovering and reminiscing!

Man, last time I played this was like 10 years ago. Wanted to play some arena shooters again, and I remembered this one. Is there still enough player populating servers?

Hi Deivis_101, check out our Padday every 1st Sunday of a month to play online or join our Discord-Server (http://discord.worldofpadman.net) to ask people to join for a match online! It depends a little on your location if there is a server with a suitable ping.

Hi Fdkd, as far as I know ENTE's PadShop was never released for Elite Force and I think it never will be. :(
