“For a hundred years, how many people tried and how many people have lost their lives? Do you know how many people never came back? Not even their dead bodies came back; they got lost, lost forever. But, still, a few courageous people went on and on….. …But people went on coming from all over the world, risking, knowing that they may not come back ever, they may be lost. But it is worth it — because in the very risk something is born inside you: the center. It is born only in the risk. That’s the beauty of risk, the gift of risk.” Osho

Disclaimer: I do not hold responsibility for what this software does. This is a test release and I want to check how it works. Windows only.
This is primarily a network game test release. It does not have much to do with Link-Dead. It has quick and dirty graphics and sounds which resemble a certain 1990’s game.
Please do not report any bugs. I don’t care. The only thing I’m concerned about is whether and how the network play works; if it crashes or doesn’t work in any way.
The controls are standard WASD. If you want details they can be found ion the menu (ESC).
T key is for chat
To play with yourself:
take off your pants.
Press escape. Select Game/Start Server.
When it loads: Select Game/Join Localhost
To play with real people:
Download and install Hamachi
Create an account or whatever it tells you to do. When you’re ready, in Hamachi click “Join an existing network…”.
Fill in the details:
Network name: link-dead
In the network, there should hopefully be other players. You can chat with them (click on link-dead for channel chat), setup your server or join their servers.
To start a server follow the steps above in “To play with yourself”
To join someones server press Game/Join Address. Change the IP:Port to the players IP. Default port is 50008.
That’s all. I hope it works.
Oh yes and the download link! Grab it here.
Please report if it crashes. Tell me when exactly in the game it happens, a screenshot will help.
The framerate won’t go above 30 fps, it is fixed, not slow. If it drops below 30 then tell me and mention what hardware you have.
- fixed graphics messed up on some systems
- fixed crash on map1.png load
- fixed crash on kill and possibly others
- fixed disconnected player crash
- fixed join crash
