Demon Steele Release by the end of the year!

28 12 15 - 12:16

The Demon Steele developer, Terminus, made a promise to release the new playable character for Demon Steele by years end and he's ready to release the untested product on us players! So get ready folks! 

What is Demon Steele? Designed as a love letter to retro games, 80s/90s anime, and early heavy metal, DemonSteele is a complete and total gameplay overhaul for GZDoom/Zandronum that dramatically changes the flow of the game to an extremely fast-paced hack-and-slash brawler.

The id Classics (FINALLY) on GOG.com!

26 08 15 - 19:27

About time! I've been refusing to buy the older id games on Steam since they were release and now they're finally on Grand Old Games!

Grand Old Games (gog.com) sells indie and “old” games from when “we were kids”. From DOS to Win 98 games, most guarantied to work on modern Windows OS's. They even have older Mac and Linux games.

Now on GOG.com is Doom, Doom 2 + Final, and Quake. Right now there is a bundle of all three.
