To commemorate this, LGR made a retrospective video. And frankly I didn't know about plans for N64 port, any source on this, anyone?

And I had to send a review draft to Hardcore Gaming 101 today, but there's still a lot of work to do.

When Unreal came out and my dad bought it for me, the special version for 5 usd, because we were in the eastern block, I had only one evening to play it because the next day I had to go to a stupid camp on the beach for students who had the best success in our district, but in reality there was all kinds of idiots too, imagine how I felt, thinking about playing Unreal again, I had only just gotten out of Vortex Rikers. But to be honest I had to force myself to play it, it was just too dark for me in both senses of that word. I only finished Unreal in autumn of 1999. Out of the holy trinity of Unreal-Half-Life-Thief, I only really love Thief, but Unreal still holds a special place.

From 10am PST you can grab a free UGold on either Steam or GOG. Temporary promotion.
That's all there is! Didn't expect really much compared to the JJ commemorations but I was surprised they decided for the free route instead of a sale.

Happy 20th birthday to Unreal and the mother of all Unreal engines! :D

Seeing as I was too busy to prepare anything special for today's commemoration, I thought I'd drop this thing so as to not come empty handed - an .flv file for those who would like a quick peek into part of what I have slowly been making in order to complete that old UED game of telephone map (excuse the lack of editing - you can skip the first 20 seconds):

Cheers everyone :tup:

Happy birthday! It's awesome how some people celebrate the anniversary by showing new content. In that regard, I also found this updated video of Krull0r's Remake Project:

I still remember picking Unreal out for my dad's birthday when I was little. Such a great game.

God I got old :)

I never get tired of replaying this game. It's always going to be close to the chest for me, as will this place.

I really should go and try maps I haven't played. Saw many interesting ones while browsing for screenshots for 4chan.
An opportunity like that only happens every 20 years :) https://boards.4chan.org/v/thread/417200068

Happy Birthday to the best game ever.

Happy Birthday, Unreal!


[EDIT:]
Just watched your video, Sat42, and I really love what you've done with my original area - really captured the kind of atmosphere I was aiming for. Hope you'll be able to do a final release soonish! :D
