Daikatana, a legendary first-person perspective shooter by the one and only John Romero, famous for its borderline-insane difficulty level and featuring many fresh ideas, is available on GOG.com, for only $5.99.
"Suck it Down!". No, we did not invent that tagline. This was one of the original slogans this game used when it first launched in the year 2000. It wasn't even the one that sprouted controversy--that would be "John Romero's about to make you his bitch", a one that the talented developer regretted ever since, as it practically ruined his good standing with the gamers' community. Whichever slogan we take into account, the message was clear: "this game is hard as nails". And so it was. It was dubbed unfair by some, and infuriating by others. However, those who managed to finish it walk tall and proud among the gamerfolk.
Daikatana is a FPS that brought many fresh ideas to the genre, even if it was a tad late to the party. It has a very retro-futuristic feel to it, mixing the 1990s and 2000s aesthetics. It features a slew of original maps, interesting mechanics, and fancy weaponry--including the titular Japanese long sword. Most importantly: its just as much rewarding, as it is punishing. Because, you know, "no pain--no gain".
Accept John Romero's challenge and prove everyone, including yourself, that you can beat the legendary Daikatana, available on GOG.com for only $5.99.
