Chaos Engine 3 player beta?

Hey guys,

Anyone know if this beta was ever released/leaked/available? Would be nice if this version could be sourced...

Regards,
Lesta

Nothing available as far as I know:

And with gods-country.de being down right now, I guess it is best to link a YT video for whoever would want to take a look:

Thanks for the link. I guess they decided to make the game 2 player as three players would be able to cream this game way too easy.

True but would have been nice to have nonetheless! Anyone from Bitmap Brothers on forum have this version!?

I vaguely recall many years ago when the Bitmaps started up their website that I dropped them an email to their webmaster asking if they had any older or earlier code or versions etc, especially the 3-char ver and their answer was that games went through many builds before going final and they did not have access to any older versions anymore or something to that effect. Which was a shame.

But to be honest, you could ask yourself where are all these coders today? A lot have moved on to other things over time. I believe Eric M works for Sony. Mike M is still doing game stuff also. No idea where Steve K ended up - I remember early pics of him and the boys in a car in the days of Xenon/SB, in an old ST Action mag I think, I think it was a Citroen car perhaps, probably rampaging around Wapping London. Time flies...

Remember Naksha(?) mice?

That vid of the 3-char CE was from GameMaster, the only time it was shown in action from memory. Early version no doubt. Heck the Gent's weapon was a fire pistol which seemed to burn the floor. I'm sure more tales could be told from others in the team, Dan M must have some stories. He still draws CE stuff on his DeviantArt page.

Has anybody any footage of the old MPockets-derrivative used on MotorMouth, the Saturday morning ITV kids show? There must be some floppies with this on somewhere in the world?
