Warsow – fast paced trick jumping multiplayer fps

Concept of WarsowWarsow is a free standalone first person shooter game for Windows and Linux. It is based on the Qfusion 3D engine (a modification of the Quake 2 GPL engine), and aimed on the competitive scene, or the e-sports community.Warsow is developped under the motto “by gamers for gamers” by a team coming from all kinds of gaming backgrounds. To attain the “by gamers for gamers” spirit, the community are our betatesters, both through internal testing sessions (with community members) and in the feedback on the public releases. We make decisions in close cooperation with the community. However, we do have our own general development direction, and therefor will carefully judge all suggestions and critique made by the community. This way we try to reach a balance between the general consensus on gameplay aspects in the community, and what we feel is best for Warsow’s gameplay and concept in the development process.

The base gameplay is focussed around the art of movement, meaning moving, speed and tricks play a big part in the gameplay. Besides this, mapcontrol, aim, teamplay and fragging skills play their role too. For the movement we’ve basicly looked at four games: Quakeworld (legendary for it’s speed), Quake3 CPMA, Jet Set Radio and Speedball.

Another twist in gameplay is Warsow’s weapon system. Warsow has two firing modes for each weapon; by picking up a weapon, you will be equipped with the standard (weak) ammo for the weapon, but when you pick up an ammo pack, you will equip your weapon with special (strong) ammo. Weapons may have different damage or slightly different behaviour depending on what ammo you use: for instance: the weak electrobolt (Warsow’s rail) is a high speed projectile, whereas the electrobolt with strong ammo is instant hit. This way, not only control of health and armor plays a role, but getting strong ammo is a valid way to create a comeback.

This is a cool flash based test of your steady hands as you have to guide a red dot through a moving maze in order to reach the end without touching the sides. It’s trickier than it looks at first!!
