Chaos Engine 3-player beta video

If anyones interested, at TCR we now have video footage of the Chaos Engine when it was intended to be a 3 character game.

Visit my sig and go to the downloads section to view it.

I was thinking... shouldn't a bit of info be added to the HOL page for Chaos Engine? Just to explain that originally the game was intended for 3 players and that the 3 player version was seen on Gamesmater (or something alone these lines).

Maybe some Misc Shots could be added too?

You mean the video itself or a rolling/playable demo?

Ah yeah, it's the same vid on Chaos Regime I think.

For some reason wikipedia says CE was originally 6 players.. seems a tad... unrealistic

Yeah I know, but that still sounds totally unrealistic.

I would imagine that three players on screen is cramped enough, but with 6 running about it would be a complete mess!

All the Thalion related pages are composed by me, and there aint no-body more qualified except...... perhaps Thalion themselves.... hmm I think I see a flaw

Wow, 3 players would have been really crowded I can imagine why they stuck to two players in the end, it just makes for a very slick game that even with two human players is no walk in the park - unless it is a park in hell.

I think game is slightly slower but it may be because of video encoding.

Awesome, I wished they kept that three player mode.

That reminds me we NEED someone to hack Amiga IK+ with three player mode like on C64
