World destruction comes in small shrink-wrapped packages...


Apocalypse Then: Strife

Developer: Rogue Entertainment
Publisher: Velocity
Engine: id Tech 1 (Doom)
Platform: MS-DOS
Release date: May 31, 1996
Genres: First-person shooter, Role-playing

On this day in gaming, in 1996, Strife was released.

It was a FPS/ RPG hybrid that used the id Tech 1 (Doom) engine, and included RPG elements, character development, NPCs that the player could interact with, and multiple endings. Unlike other FPS games, you can backtrack to previous parts of the game.

The source code for the game was lost, but due to some reverse engineering attempts, nowadays the game can be played with ZDoom and SvStrife.

Pick up Strife here if you're interested in playing a classic.
