    Hey everyone! I'm currently working on a pixel perfect recreation of the 1977 version of Maze War for the Xerox Alto machine.

    Maze War was the first ever multiplayer first person shooter, and unlike old FPS games like battlezone, I think the graphic style is still quite appealing.

    It uses the original 606x808 resolution of the Alto Machine, although you can full screen it with large black bars on either side.

    Here's a screenshot:


    Here's the github page with full source code and info about the recreation process: https://github.com/Blueteak/MazeWar

    And here's a steam greenlight page I threw together in case people want to play the final copy, game will be free to play since it's open source, just a way to get people to play the original FPS game:

    Hope you like it!

    I love this!

    How can I find out more?

    I downloaded the source code but it was over my head.

    I want to play this game! And possibly port a version to the Atari ST...

    Thank you so much! (also the link for playing the game here does not work)
