I am looking for this old PC FPS game
« on: February 09, 2009, 03:24:57 PM »
Suddenly when I sat playing Xcom: Enemy unknown today I remembered some old FPS I played when I was younger. I don't remember it's name or exactly what the premise was but I have a few facts that might hint to what game it was

It's either post apocalyptic or SciFi with a very dark atomsphere (also graphically). You start the game by choosing one out of 3 characters, and if I remember correctly you could choose some big beefy guy, a gal of some sort (Amazonish I think but I am not sure, possibly red haired) and something else which I don't remember what was. Depending on which character you choose you get different weapons with basically the same functionality. One weapon I remember you could get was some sort of remote controlled spider robot bomb thingy. And IIRC the first level started outside some complex with the first enemy being some sort of turret firing red lasers

I remember playing this game deathmatch with p3lb0x and the_other_brother, and since p3lb mentioned it on MSN I've been trying hard to remember what it was called, looking through old game collections et ceterea - to no avail.

I finally got clever and ended up constructing this google query - and lo and behold, there was the hit!

I don't think it was very popular, and the graphics weren't all top notch even by the standards back then. But iirc it was kinda fun playing - can't for the life of me remember whether I whooped the two (at that pointer VERY young) brothers' behinds, or if they obliterated me, though :)

I wonder if the game is based on the BUILD engine (from duke3d), kinda had that feel iirc.
