Try some Gore

First person shooter demo released

Gore has been in development for something in the region of four years now, designed by a talented team of mostly internet-based amateurs, including a couple of guys I used to work with back in my Quake 2 mod making days. But after countless delays and an extended design cycle which developers 4D Rulers admit had its "highs and lows", last month the game was finally completed. Gore should be out in the USA soon through Dreamcatcher, while Cryo are expected to be publishing the game in Europe some time in July, with Mindscape distributing in the UK. To celebrate, a final demo version is now available to replace the previous "Gore Test" releases. Included in the sizeable 100Mb download is the early stages of the single player campaign, along with a pair of multiplayer maps and support for deathmatch, team deathmatch, capture the flag and tactical gameplay modes. You can grab the demo from all the usual suspects -
