Release Date: June 8, 1999
Source Code Release Date: Not formally released

There's lots of game series whose entries reflect the evolution of gaming technology, but not many of them can lay claim to staring the series on the Apple II and Commodore 64.

Might and Magic VII: For Blood and Honor is the seventh entry in the mainlne Might and Magic series, which runs parallel to the Hereos of Might and Magic series. Released in 1999 (the Best Year for Gaming, Ever) it is the second game in the series to use a 3D engine. The OpenEnroth project aims to implement Might and Magic VI, VII and VIII, but at the moment only VII is playable.

Developer: Relic Entertainment
Release Date: September 28, 1999
Source Code Release Date: September 2003

I have some games on this site with lots of fans, but I feel like Homeworld has a particularly special cultlike following. Released in 1999 (aka The Best Year For Gaming, Ever) it is a RTS game set in a 3-D space, a novel concept for the time and one that's hard to match even to this day. It spawned a sequel and a pair of spinoff games, and a third game in the main series has been in the works for several years and should be delivered in 2024.

Relic released the source code for the original game in 2003 under the now defunct Relic Developer Network and it's been the basis of several source ports with a history more complicated than Dune lore.

NOTE: In 2013, Gearbox releaed the Homeworld Remastered Collection which featured enhanced versions of the first two mainline games as well as the original, and these are likely the only versions being sold today. If you use the data from these versions you will want to use the files from the "Homeworld1Classic" folder in the instructions below.

Bugdom 2 is a 2002 sequel to the original game. You play as a grasshopper named Skip who needs to retrieve his stolen knapsack from a large Bully Bee.

Half-Life: Opposing Force is the first expansion pack for Half-Life. It takes place during the events of the original game, but instead of playing as Gordon Freeman having a bad day at work you play from the perspective of one of the Marines sent into the complex. It was definitely an interesting maneuver, and one that avoided having to explain what happened after the end of the first game, they wouldn't go there until the sequel.

NOTE: the support for Opposing Force as a Xash3D-FWGS mod is still in development. You may notice quirks like glitches with weapon animations. For this reason I have labeled the game as "Early Access". If you're willing to ignore the issues you can go ahead and experience the expansion pack on your Mac again.

Developer: Gearbox Software
Release Date: June 12, 2001
Source Code Release Date: Not released to the public

OK, so here's the deal: around 2001, Gearbox Software was contracted to port Half-Life to the Sega Dreamcast. Seeing as how they handled making the Half-Life: Opposing Force expansion, it made sense to hand the task off to them. And just to make the port even more special, Gearbox made a second expansion pack, Half-Life: Blue Shift, that would be exclusive to the Dreamcast version of the game. Whereas the first expansion followed the original game's story through the viewpoint of one of the Marines sent into the Black Mesa facility, Half-Life: Blue Shift does the same but from the perspective of Black Mesa security guard Barney.

Gamers were annoyed at the prospect of a single player expansion they couldn't run on their PC, so Valve capitulated and decided to release the expansion retail for PC gamers as well.

And then the Dreamcast port of Half-Life was canceled at the last minute. Like, almost literally the last mintue - some number of press review copies had alredy been sent out. There's a very small number of actual copies of the game.

Then when Blue Shift finally came out for the PC, many gamers were disappointed with its short length, unaware of the Dreamcast back story.

In any event, one of the mods that the Xash3D-FWGS project supports is a port of Blue Shift, so I've updated the build to include it. You will need both the original game and the expansion. If you want more Half-Life, duty calls...

Source Code Release Date: Not formally released

Although not as popular as later entries, THe Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall still has a devout cult following today, so much so that there is an online effort to recreate it in an updated engine.

The Daggerfall Unity project, which like it says on the tin is a recreation of the game in the Unity engine, has been in the works for a few years now and for a while it's been mature enough to play through the whole game.

I had been keeping an eye on this project and the main reason I held off on adding it before was that it was an unsigned Intel-only app, and I would have built a Universal 2 version except I have no experience with Unity so I put it on the backburner. However, in light of recent developments with Unity I now don't see myself ever messing with it, and since there are technical reasons why it is Intel-only for now, I've decided to add it as it is.

For the game data, Daggerfall is free on places like GOG and Steam and the Daggerfall Unity project itself is available on GOG, but only for Windows, so I figured adding it here was still worthwhile.

When Tomb Raider came out, more than a few people compared the vibe to that of Indiana Jones, with the exploration and puzzle solving and action elements, a comparison exacerbated by the very uneven history of Indiana Jones games which ranged from excellent adventure games to mediocre side scrollers. So naturally the next step was to make a Tomb Raider game in the Indiana Jones universe. As a bonus it shipped as a Nintendo 64 exclusive, serving that market since the Tomb Raider franchise was a PlayStation exclusive.

Release Date: April 7, 1997
Source Code Release Date: Not released

The second half of the 90's saw the first person shooter genre open up enough to start exploring different types of settings, something other than gothic dungeons and space bases. Outlaws is an early example of a FPS set in the American Wild West. Using the same engine as the original Star Wars: Dark Forces, it features old firearms and a user interface germane to the primitive arcade machines of the day. The game had a free expansion, A Handful of Missions which is included with the digital distribution versions of the game.

Most of the time an expansion pack is just more content, usually some new enemies, etc. Star Wars Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith is an expansion to Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II but it featured more improvements like colored lighting and improved textures. It also featured Mara Jade, the most popular Expanded Universe character in history.
