(ACHTUNG: we have released the full three-episode version after a year of development. See the article for more details: Moddb.com )

(ACHTUNG: after witnessing some slightly misleading press publications, I'd like to emphasise that this is not my mod, or at least not just my mod. It's a team effort. So, Team Fugitives presents...)

Everyone knows Wolfenstein 3D, the big game of 1992. Released first as a shareware episode on May 5, it features the brave and dashing Allied spy, William "B.J." Blazkowicz, as he escapes capture and imprisonment and proceeds to rip the ugly Nazis a new orifice, ultimately even killing the main man himself - Hitler. The game was a huge success, and even to this day, there are communities of obviously insane people who keep releasing new mods. Talk about dedication.

However, the storyline of the main game ends in the 1940s. Fast forward a few decades and ask yourself - where did all those people go? BJ - he's still out there somewhere. His enemies, big and small - still alive and kicking. But the years have not been kind to them. There comes a day when spry youngsters turn into old geezers, lifestyles once full of activity give way to sitting in comfy chairs and reading today's newspaper. Fake teeth, cane - check. Now where did you put your gold watch? Oh, it's next to the old radio. Zzzzz...

That's the story here.

So, 30 years after the events of Wolfenstein 3D... As B.J.'s grandson has to leave the city (and, in fact, the planet) for a longer time, old William has to be placed in a retirement house. Imagine his surprise, then, when he wakes up surrounded by his former foes! After listening to a brief monologue by Hans Grosse, you have to leap into action immediately, and hopefully find a way out of this hellish place. But even if you do that, there may be other ghosts of the past waiting for you outside...

You get 10 new floors (just like in the shareware episode) with all new graphics, music and sounds, plus some interesting features and gameplay rebalancing.

This mod is a product of labor, love, and last minute effort. Here's the full list of credits, in alphabetical order:

Will there be more? Who knows? For now, enjoy!

And now there is more! We're updating the mod to the full, 31-map version of Oldfartenstein 3D. It's got 21 new levels with tons of action, new graphics, music, sounds, coding features. Fight Schabbs and his mutant hordes in Castle Wolfenstein, then take on Hitler's disco bunker in episode 3. Have fun.


Gah, so much sepia! Help!


They face the music.


The dog's rollin`!


Ah, here's my watch.


That's one dangerous rocking chair. (featuring: bullet holes)


Old or not, they're still bleeders.

In case you haven't been paying attention, we've been working on a new Oldfartenstein release for the last year or so. And now we finally return, bringing you a total of 21 new levels, new features, new graphics, new storyline, new everything!

The story? After defeating Hans Grosse in a climactic (not really) battle at the end of Episode 1, you walk to the nearby Castle Wolfenstein to face whatever horrors the ancient Nazis can throw your way. And you don't like what you find there. It's not like Escape from Wolfenstein, but not like Operation Eisenfaust either; it's a whole new thing! You'll see.

And in Episode Three, Hitler hides in his titanic bunker... in fact, he's so bored with hiding (hello Argentina), he's been setting up disco parties and you just happen to intrude in the middle of one. Kill Nazis to the rhythm of fun music and flashing lights!

A list of new features (there's QUITE a few):

* More Maps to get lost in (20 new + 1 super secret level)
* More Story to bore you!
* More Gore to adore
* More Fixes to complain about!
* More Enemies (Retired Officers and post-dead Mutants join)
* More Bosses (5 leaders return from their grave)
* More Graphics (78 new walls, 35 new sprites objects and more)
* More Music
* More Demented AI (Chance the enemy forgets to shoot you)
* More V2-Dog chit-chat for Episode 2 and 3!
* More deadly Schabbs' needles, with effects you won't see coming!
* More Colors - Dynamic Disco Floors
* More Animation - Color cycling left and right
* More Endings - Special end scenes for each episode on the 5th difficulty

Seems that there's no way to collect all of the treasure on E2L10 (Sewer Dump). They're stuck behind barrels.
