Edge The Game is online First Person Shooter written in Blitz3D by myself. This game was made mostly for the Edge compo over at TIGS but it turned out pretty well ihmo contrary to my own expectations.
This version is pretty improved from the beta I posted yesterday in the projects section, and includes a windowed version so that you can do something else while you wait for someone to join your game for example.
Needless to say, I open to your criticism.
There is a huge background behind the game, but since the story is too long to be told here I'll just write down the most important parts of the story:
Someone called Tim Langdell threatened and tried to extort money from indie game developers Mobigame,as their game Edge supposedly infringed his trademark The Edge.
The whole thing grew to epic proportions and thanks to some people's investigations, it was found that the man's company tried to tie itself to some reputable entities like the Edge
Magazine, a hollywood movie and much more thanks to it's trademark "The Edge". Also shocking is that the guy is member of the IGDA, and guess what, they are trying to stay away from the whole thing, even if IGDA's reputation is at stake (and seriously threatened imo).
Also worth mentioning is the fact his company used to be located in London, but they ran away to the United States to escape a UK court verdict after not having paid several programmers working for them. He was also involved in several scams like one in particular where he promissed a prize worth £35,000 to the first player who could solve all the riddle in his game "Quo Vadis" but, surprise surprise, nobody ever received it, even though several players mailed his company but were told they didn't answered the riddles correctly, simply because it was impossible to solve all the riddles.
