Release: Catacombs Pack
Venture into the depths of FPS gaming history!Catacombs Pack, a collection of games that lay the foundations of the first-person shooter genre on the PC bundled with their 2D dungeon-running predecessor, is available on GOG.com, for only $5.99.In 1989 John Carmack designed and released a top-down action game featuring a mage blasting his way through an old, moldy dungeon. Who would have thought, that this simplistic title would evolve into a series that would take gamers into a whole new dimension. There are other games often credited with creating the very first bits of the FPS genre, but if you asked John Carmack, he would probably tell you that it all began in the Catacombs.Catacombs Pack features five games. The Catacomb is a top-down dungeon-runner with simplistic yet exciting gameplay. Catacomb 3D: Descent takes that basic idea into the realm of 3D and into the first-person perspective. The trilogy that follows--Catacomb Abyss 3D, Catacomb Armageddon, and Catacomb Apocalypse--add a fantasy story of sorcery and blood on top of that, to create an experience that would capture the gamers' imagination and sprout into a whole new genre.Before the call of duty doomed you to roam unreal places and exterminate predatory aliens with a big freakin' gun, there were Catacombs.
