Guten tag gamers!
It is hard to believe that Wolfenstein 3D, the original -- and now legendary -- shooter that set the gamer world on fire has turned 20 years old! Hell, it can almost vote and it can buy you a beer if you live in Paraguay (one of the countries where many escaping Nazi elite settled down) where the drinking age is 20...
It seems that Bethesda Softworks is in the mood to celebrate -- and so they are marking the 20th Anniversary of Der Wulf with a free-to-play browser version of the game. Mein leben!
If you are too young to remember this game -- you know, the game that launched the first person shooter genre -- well that's OK you Toter hund... You can now play the classic PC game directly in your bloody web browser -- or even your not-so-bloody web browser, they are not picky eine kleine Amerikaner! Just scream Alles ist verloren at your boss and point your browser at: wolfenstein.bethsoft.com or on the Wolfenstein Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/wolfenstein.
While you're thinking about this, why not check out this Bethesda Podcast video featuring John Carmack, technical director of id Software, as he shares his insights into the creation and the development of Wolfenstein 3D while playing the game:
Later today those worthy Roseknospe will also be offering Wolfenstein 3D Classic Platinum, available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, free for a limited time. To download Wolfenstein 3D Classic Platinum from iTunes visit: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wolfenstein-3d-classic-platinum/id309470478?mt=8.
Well there you have it... So... Eva, auf wiedersehen!
