Warzone 2100 petition
 
Warzone 2100 petition [ Community -> Update ]
Posted by Saint_Proverbius Mon 03 Nov 2003, 2:23 AM
The guys over at Pumpkin-2 have started a petition to get Eidos to release the source code for Warzone 2100, which is probably the best RTS not too many people have heard of.. But it's post apocalyptic so I figured you guys might be interested.

Released in April 1999 Warzone 2100 was the first 3D Real-Time-Strategy game. It stood-out back then and almost 5 years later it remains unrivaled in its particular innovations. Pumpkin Studios created it and Eidos Interactive distributed it. Warzone 2100 was advertised very little, and after 7 months and 10 patches Pumpkin Studios was disbanded and shortly thereafter Eidos ended all support for the game.

This is where you can help.

In October of 1999 NEWST was formed to continue enhancing and supporting the game. In February of 2003 NEWST became Pumpkin-2. Over the years, members of the group have created mods, maps, editors, utilities, Artificial Intelligences and even an anti-cheating game server. Warzone 2100 is a game that commanded our continued support. We simply could not let it die with the demise of its creators.

But we have reached an impasse and this is where your vote can help make a difference.

In order to continue Warzone 2100?s evolution we need the source code. This petition's mission is to draw Eidos Interactive's attention to the persistent interest in the game. They are the legal owners of the copyright and have (to-date) shown no intent to do anything with the source code.


Pretty slick game if you haven't played it, and you can probably get it dirt cheap if you can find it.
