Alien Carnage?

Post by Alex2501 » Jul 29th, 2011, 16:42

Possible dumb question but where are the source ports? I know 3DR released the source code a few years back and it's a pretty good game. I was hoping some source ports for Win7 would be out, fans would go crazy with mods and shit, and I haven't seen anything. Unless there's a really obscure Alien Carnage/Halloween Harry fan site that hosts it and doesn't easily come up in Google Searches.

Who the fuck does Alien Carnage' programmers think they are? Being incompatible with DOSBox now? :lol:

In all earnest what need would their be for a windows port given it would assumedly function under an emulated environment. The only fanatical fanbase I know of in the same genre would be Commander Keen.

As for custom content, perhaps it didn't retain a cult following as you hoped? :lol:

I don't appreciate your trolling dude, I was being very respectful in my post.

I think asking about a source port is very reasonable. It's a good game, and who wouldn't want to play a source port made for an Android phone or whatever? There have been ports of Abuse to handhelds and such.

Bah, I suppose I'm the only one who doesn't take emotions seriously, my apoligies. I think I recalled a sequel to Alien Carnage however.

Yeah, Zombie Wars made specifically for Windows 3.1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=at-zjB1KjM8

Looks like more of the same.

It's kind of like more of the same, but being worse and having less content at the same time. I don't really know, I've never got it to work. But here's a good review on it.

Alien Carnage was overall very cool... great gfx.
Zombie War sucks stylewise.
