C-Dogs SDL, the classic run and gun game has a new release

By - | Views: 9,189

C-Dogs SDL is something of a classic. A free and open source overhead run-and-gun game that continues being updated and a fresh release is out now.

What is it? C-Dogs is the followup to Cyberdogs, a classic from back in 1994 that ended up being really popular. Originally created by Ronny Wester as a freeware DOS game back in 1997, it was later open sourced and now it continues on with it using SDL for more modern platform support.

The new C-Dogs SDL 0.9.0 release is a major upgrade, which brings with it a complete Doom campaign filled with secret levels, ammo/health pickups and persistent guns.

There's also now feet colours, new hair/hats, the AI can make a sound when they 'wake' from seeing a player, the pause menu got improved with a background overlay and weapon selection will have menus disabled if there's none available as a small quality of life fix. Not only that the game editor also saw numerous improvements like static pickups, multiple exits, player template editing and multiple new options.

Lovely to see another classic still alive and well.

You can pick it up on GitHub.

I was a big fan of Cyberdogs. I remember when C-Dogs came I was like "nope. Not the same enough". But it was still good.
