MadSpace demo version

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.

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.
