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.
A pilot by day and a DOS enthusiast by night (and sometimes the other way around) Chris Olson joins yours truly to discuss a rather popular (back in the DOS days) genre of flight simulator games. Unbuckle your seat belt, sit back, relax, and enjoy the flight.
A cool animated logo of a Russian company Nikita only featured in one game (as far as I know) – White House Siege (aka Super Toppler), a sequel to their first international hit Perestroika. Sound from PC Speaker.
The music is a classic tune by Mikhail Glika which was modern Russia’s first anthem (no lyrics) before the USSR anthem with new lyrics replaced it.
