Tempest 2000 is known for its techno soundtrack by Imagitec Design, Inc. in redbook audio format across a variety of platforms. However, the MS-DOS version has optional AdLib/Sound Blaster music that can be enabled in the configuration program. I’ve decided to make it available here. (I also would like to note that the DOS version also has MT-32 music, and that maybe someone with a real card could also make it available some day.)

I’ve decided to name the tracks that were variations on the CD tracks accordingly while leaving original tracks untitled. Enjoy.

Russian retro guru Dmitry Bachilo joins yours truly to discuss our (limited) experience with DOS multiplayer technologies & games. The kind of stories you’ll only hear from Russians. So grab yourself some vodka, caviar & a bear, relax & enjoy.
MadSpace is a Russian first person shooter developed by Maddox Games and published by Auric Vision in 1997.
The game has quite a few unique features including non-Euclidean geometry, 3D glasses support, speech recognition & multiplayer up to 16 players. Although the game was published in Russia as well as some other territories (in English), it was a commercial flop & physical copies are extremely rare.
This is a video of a four pre-recorded demos that are included with the demo version. The game has a high resolution support (640×400 only,) but even back in the day it would make it rather sluggish even on a nice Pentium. I couldn’t capture it in that mode without sacrificing the frame rate, so I settled on a standard VGA mode instead.
