First-person killing time!

KillThings, by Orm of Digi Tallis, is a 3D first-person shoot 'em up in a similar vein to something like Wolfenstein. Alas, it was never finished, but it is playable and I'm impressed by the speed of the engine which is fast and fluent. What is cool is the mapping screen which works just like the one seen in Doom!!

Sadly, there is no sound and little to do other than wandering stark corridors looking for a bug-eyed stickman to kill. Still, the potential is staggering when you think about what's completed for this development release. I wonder how it might have ended? Oh, there is a level editor if you're feeling bravely creative? Go on, I dare ya!

The mapping tool works like a dream much like in Doom!
Why not design your own levels using the editor?

The CryptO'pinion?

KillThings was never going to replace Wolfenstein or Substation but I'm fascinated by oddities like this. Plus I'm impressed with the hopes and dreams of what this developer wanted to create back in the day... But that makes it worse when these ideas die before being completed. The 'readme' explains a great deal...

But fear not, at least we have this demo which is rather neat and certain shows what might have been if completed. It's rather cool and can be downloaded from their website, along with the level editor and much more.
