Mac OS X version of prototype 5.4 of Revenge Of The Cats: Ethernet
Revenge Of The Cats: Ethernet is a free experimental online multiplayer FPS with unique gameplay: Alternate between the pure energy "ether form" and the physical manifestation called "CAT". Capture territory and defeat enemies using a multitude of weapons, grenades, and target-seeking discs that can be deflected and steered around corners. Thanks to the territory capturing and the fact that you can only change into CAT form on friendly territory, this game is much deeper than your usual abstract shooter.
It took longer than expected, but after 6 months of intense development, ROTC: Ethernet's free and open-source spiritual successor (which was successfully crowdfunded earlier this year) has its first public release:
There is not much content yet. The release mainly serves as a public sign of life and (hopefully) to attract additional developers/contributors to the project.
The only gameplay footage currently in existence is this short montage of 1vs1 testing sessions leading up to the 0.1.0 release:
If you're interested in trying the game and/or getting involved in development, head over to its official website at www.terminal-overload.org.
