    This is an OOOLDIE! Warpath is a windows 3.1 game. Yeah.

    I grew up playing the shareware version of this for hours, it's charming, and surprisingly fun, if not too deep. The 3.1 version is straight freeware now, and there's a free beta version for modern systems (Warpath 21st Century) that features network support, along with a seperate server component.

    There's a commercial ($2) version for android phones, too. info buy

    I don't imagine this will catch the eye of many unless, like myself, you have the nostalgia factor, but I can imagine a game with several human players getting quite... interesting.


    For more classic goodies, Adept Software's God Of Thunder, Jetpack, and Squarez Deluxe are now freeware as well.

    (I'll assume that was directed at me)

    lol, sorry but I didn't get nostalgic for it until today when I was thinking about old games. It was a nice surprise to find out that it's free now.

    Honestly though, the google is weak with you. "old windows game warpath" returns results 1,2, and 5 for the exact game and 1+2 are links directly to the creator's site. :laugh:

    It's funny how you can search and search and never find something, then just happen upon the right search term combination and BOOM, first result.

    Yeah, that doesn't help things at all. It's so frustrating when it's right on the tip of your tongue, so to speak, and you can't remember.

    Anywho, </offtopic>

    What this pack has taught me: The crap I made with a demo of Klik n Play on Windows 95 in '97 qualifies me as a legit indie developer. I just wished I had saved that shit.

    There's some pretty clever little games (the ending to "Fuck All Y'All", anyone?) and a lot of utter crap. Sadly the game "MOTORCYCLE COCK" had my attention for 45 minutes, until I ran into - as far as I can tell - an impossible jump. :banghead:

    Bungie’s pre-cursor to Halo, The Marathon Trilogy, is now available for free


    The company that created the Halo series has released its earlier games, the Marathon trilogy, as a free download for PC and Mac.

    When most people think of Bungie, they think of the Halo franchise–which makes sense, what with those games going on to become a pop cultural phenomenon, and making both Bungie and Microsoft boat loads of cash. But before Halo: Combat Evolved was even a twinkle in the collective eyes of the developers, there was the Marathon Trilogy.

    For most, the games will either be unknown, or little more than a feint memory. Bungie developed the first game in 1994 as a Macintosh exclusive, way back before Apple ruled the world. The game’s reach was limited, but it gained a cult following, and in many circles has become an extremely influential game in development circles. When Marathon 2: Durandal was released in 1995, it retained a year of Macintosh exclusivity before being released on the PC in 1996. The third title, Marathon Infinity, was released on both Mac and PC, also in 1996. In 1997, all three games were released under the banner of The Marathon Trilogy, and were available on both Mac and PC.

    But still, the games were best known by Mac fans, and barely known to those that stuck with consoles. It wasn’t until Bungie decided to go ironic and leave the Mac family in order to release Halo: Combat Evolved exclusively for Microsoft’s original Xbox in 2001 (then later on PC and Mac in late 2003) that Bungie became a sensation.

    Now that Bungie is a rockstar in the developer circles and gets all the best parking spots at gaming events, they are looking back releasing the trilogy that started it all for free. In 2007, Marathon 2: Durandal was released via Xbox Live, then earlier this year the original Marathon was released for free to iOS devices, but now all three games are available to download for free, for both Mac and PC, which you can download here.

    Set in 2794, the games begin with you as a security officer orbiting the distant Tau Ceti IV, as alien slavers attempt to capture your ship and crew while an AI known as Durandal is manipulating events for its own purposes. The series then jumps 17 years into the future after Durandal sends you to search the ruins of an ancient civilization, which could lead to stopping an invasion of Earth. In the third and final game, you traverse multiple timelines to prevent an ancient enemy from escaping.

    The games were also fairly renowned for their use of multiplayer modes, which are again available to play online.

    Although Bungie has long since moved on from the Marathon universe, it is an interesting look back at the history of the company that helped change first-person shooters forever. And now you can check out all three games for free.

    Wow this is surprisingly good. Has some original ideas and coded from scratch using C++ these people are talented and made a great game. Thanks for sharing. I just wish I could use my own music and if the world would some how interact with the music playing this game would be EPIC imo. It would be like Wipeout meets audiosurf.

    It reminds me of San Fransisco Rush (from N64 days,) and the name shows they might have used that as inspiration. Adding your own music would be cool, maybe it will eventually become a purchasable game with more options, guess we'll see.
