Warsow is up on Steam Greenlight (20 comments)
Posted by ETR @ 06:31 CST, 10 February 2013 - iMsg
Dear ESReality, we need your help!

Warsow is up on Steam Greenlight, and in this light I'd like to ask you, dear reader, would you play this game if it were available in Steam?
If yes, please head on over to Steam Greenlight and vote!

For those of you that are not familiar with Warsow, and not yet comfortable with the thought of leaving ESReality by clicking on the above link for some more information regarding Warsow, and possibly Steam Greenlight, let me quote some information:
Warsow is a completely free first-person shooter with a strong focus on competitive play and esports.

Set in a futuristic world and boasting a unique cartoonish look, the game avoids cliched gore and violence typically found in games of the genre. Instead Warsow puts strong emphasis on what we think FPS games should be about: speed, movement, control, aim and competitive ethics.

A perfect blend of skill and strategy, Warsow's movement mechanics offer a unique, challenging yet gratifying experience that makes Warsow the foremost skill based FPS available. Warsow boasts friendly community and is extremely customizable, offering almost unlimited creative opportunities for fans and modders.

And what's Steam Greenlight?
Steam Greenlight is a system that enlists the community's help in picking some of the new games to be released on Steam. Developers post information, screenshots, and video for their game and seek a critical mass of community support in order to get selected for distribution.

Let's see if this adventure can get some servers filled up again :-).

Today with the 4th wave of Tek9 Sapphire Movie Contest movies came CHO Media's (Germany FrooP & Germany KILLME) "Megatech Body ID 501".

It is (as far as I know) the only Warsow movie in the total of 90 submitted movies, and next to that it is the first major Warsow fragmovie in quite some time. So I figured I'd give it some exposure for the greater good of promoting Warsow ;). Go have a look, and rate it!

War§ow 0.55: Coming Soon! (186 comments)
Posted by ETR @ 06:57 CDT, 6 September 2010 - iMsg
There hasn't been much noise around warsow War§ow lately outside of our own community. We have been quietly working on the next major release (0.55), preparing some nice new features and improving on War§ow's style. A quick refresher for those who don't know: War§ow is (still) a free and fastpaced cel-shaded cartoony FPS, inspired by a mix of classics such as QuakeWorld, CPM and Jetset Radio.

In the area of visuals, textures, maps, sounds and models plenty has been improved and/or updated. Weapons have been revamped, the HUD has seen some updates. War§ow will feature a real soundtrack, and some of the game announcers have been re-done. The engine has seen many improvements over the past months as well.

Anyway, this message is nothing more than a small sneak peak of what we've been working on. War§ow's development team has not been sitting still. Hope to see you soon!

For an idea of what's to come, I have attached some screenshots of some of the new or improved maps. For more detailed information on what's new, keep an eye on War§ow's devblog, follow War§ow on Twitter Twitter (@tweetsow) or simply wait for the official release of Warsow 0.55 (soon©!).

We didn't get into this bar. Was it us screaming "Warchooo" on arrival, was it the fact these people have never seen people from other places. Was it the fact we didn't had our clogs on? We'll never know.

CDC3: The Warsow Gallery (7 comments)
Posted by ETR @ 09:30 CDT, 25 September 2007 - iMsg
Crossfire's Devotii Challenge 3 hosted the first every major money LAN for Warsow in Europe (can't overlook the E-Sports Stadium 2007 Series in Japan). This event was the perfect oppurtunity for the Warsow community to meet. CDC3 attracted crazy sowians from all over, we've had a car from Sweden, someone from Denmark, people from Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, they were coming from all over to show their support and celebrate this first event.

We had a fair amount of devteam members on the spot, long time contributors, and highskill players, all staying in Enschede in one cabin. It was a weekend of alcohol abuse, highskilled Warsow duels all day, hangovers and early games. Here is an outtake of the photogallery! Much love and respect to crossfire, TosspoT, the Warsow players, and everyone who made this CDC3 possible!

New Warsow Pre-Beta Out (159 comments)
Posted by ETR @ 19:35 CDT, 18 April 2005 - iMsg
There's a new unofficial Warsow Beta around on the net! Note it's nothing official or public, but the url was posted on the forum so I assume it's not as internal as stated :p.

This is the first release after the official alpha (0.2) release of 2003. It contains three (unfinished?) maps and all weapon models, but missing sounds. Still very playable for a silent internal release :). So Grab it and start playing!

This could help you to wait some more weeks until next public release :
Warning, this build isn't in any way supposed to be some kind of official alpha release. This is only internal stuff, ok ? ^^

I've played it a bit, doesn't feel really solid but that's understandable as it's far from complete. So don't judge it from this beta :p. The movement system is very interesting imo, kindof q2-ish with an unreal twist :) (the (wall)dodges). Can't wait for the official public beta :).

By the way I'm just assuming it's ok for me to post this as it is readable to all on their forums. And I'm not sure wether this should be a newspost or forumpost, as I don't understand a whole lot of ESR.
Anyway, enjoy...
