From the earliest PadMaps came the mod PadWorld, followed by the next colourful evolution, the World of Padman. Developed and headed by cartoonist and illustrator ENTE, PadWorld Entertainment presents a free ware fun shooter for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, that’s powered by an extended id-Tech3 graphics engine based on the source of ioquake3.

WoP is the domain of ENTE’s comic strip super-hero Padman and his motley crew. It’s their mission to make your game with some seriously addictive fun, whatever your skill level and whatever character role you jump into.

Over the years maps have been revamped, bots improved, killer ducks kept hungry, weapons re-polished and much more, such as new sounds, skins, secrets, effects, and powerups! In all, there are 24 maps. Each supports up to 7 game modes, comprising WoP’s unique Spray Your Color, Last Pad Standing, Big Balloon and of course Capture The Lolly, as well as those old favourite Free For All. Meet scaled-up and richly detailed maps of everyday places where imaginative characters go berserk with an array of colorful plastic weaponry and power-ups. Start rockin’ to the soundtrack of Dieselkopf and Neurological soundtrack and the Pad-Anthem, performed by Green Sun. So grab your earphones.

Almost 10 years after the last patch and shortly after the 14th birthday of the WoP standalone, the core of the WoP team, aka PadWorld Entertainment, came together last night to discuss a further development of World of Padman, which was then decided. Yes, you read correctly, the development of World of Padman will be revived! The story continues!

WoP team core members in 2021

The ball was set rolling when Martin Gerhardy (mgerhardy), one of the developers of UFO: Alien Invasion contacted us and surprised us with fresh WoP binaries (64bit) for all three operating systems, i.e. Windows, Linux and MacOS, based on the latest version of ioquake3. Considering that version 1.6 of WoP runs on a now 10-year-old ioquake3 base, this would have been at the top of our to-do list for a new patch. We had almost forgotten that Martin wanted to support us with the 1.6 patch of WoP in 2011, but unfortunately the contact broke off at that time. So it’s great that we’re getting together again now.

Of course, we don’t want to keep you in suspense too much, but we also don’t want to reveal everything right away. Apart from clarifying organisational matters for the resumption of development, the WoP team has now decided on the following.

  1. First of all there will be a small but hopefully short term release of a version 1.6.1 for World of Padman. This will be a pure maintenance release, so there will be no new content, but bug fixes. The aim is to make WoP run on all operating systems again as quickly as possible. Since MacOS has not supported 32bit programs for a long time, WoP is no longer executable there.
  2. In the long term, a new version 1.7 is planned, in which there will also be new contents and features. Of course, we don’t want to tell you what these are yet. However, we will report on this at the right time.

In order to simplify the installation process in the future, the coming versions will again be available as a full release. This means that you will no longer need to install the full version of WoP 1.5 and patch it afterwards.

That’s it from us for now. Stay healthy! Your WoP team

Man, last time I played this was like 10 years ago. Wanted to play some arena shooters again, and I remembered this one. Is there still enough player populating servers?

Hi Deivis_101, check out our Padday every 1st Sunday of a month to play online or join our Discord-Server (http://discord.worldofpadman.net) to ask people to join for a match online! It depends a little on your location if there is a server with a suitable ping.

One of the most polished indie games around with insane maps, innovative gameplay and a unique art style that pushes the ioQuake3 engine to its limits.

Great fun and the attention to detail alone makes this game worthy of your time.
