Roll eyes (sarcastic) Game Name Confusion

Ok Guys here's something I need explaining

I was browsing the SANCTUM and saw a game by the BITMAP BROS called "CADAVER"

Later on I was browsing BTTR and saw a game called CADAVER - The Last Supper

Now I figure these can't be the same game as 1 is Commercial and 1 is freeware.

BUT !!!! both look really similar

So my Questions are:

1. What are the differences between the games ??
2. Is there not a (C) infringement for this games Graphics ??

I have enclosed a screenshot.

I hope you can clear this up guys Thanks in advance

AFAIK the last supper is an Add-on disk released by the Bitmap brothers themselves to the original Cadaver.

Maybe I'm wrong about who released it, but it's definatly an addon.

So they will look exactly alike in style and content, kinda like and extra levels addon disk or something.

I'm sure Cody/Twistin/Walker will confirm if I'm full of shit or not

Correct Ian, the last supper was an add on disk released by the Bimaps for Cadaver. There are also other Cadaver demos called the gatehouse and another which the name of escapes me. There is also the proper add on disk The payoff available.

Cadaver was the original.
Cadaver: The Pay Off was the official add-on.
Cadaver: The Last Supper was an officially sanctioned set of levels on a magazine coverdisk.
