MDDClone Novagen / Szymon Ender 2006

This is an on-going project that brings the Mercenary series of games (released on Atari ST and Amiga computers and elder 8-bits for Mercenary) to modern computers. In early 2004, an anonymous programmer created MDDClone, a Windows program that plays Mercenary, and was soon expanded to include The Second City as well. In 2005, Damocles was added to the game. And as of August 2006, MDDClone was expanded to include a complete implementation of Mercenary III: The Dion Crisis too. Originally designed by Paul Woakes, Mercenary is one of the best vector-based space flight/exploration games ever made. In the same vein as Elite, only not as famous, Mercenary casts you as the mercenary in the title who just crash-landed on the planet Targ. After exploring the planet for a while, you will eventually discover the main plot which offers you a lot of choices. You could work for one or both of two warring factions, the Palyars or the Mechanoids. Once you collect enough money (mostly by running errands as mercenaries typically do), you could buy a ship capable of intergalactic flight and get off the planet for good. MDDClone-SDL is an SDL port of Mercenary I: Escape From Targ and Second City (Mercenary I mission disk). The software version (mddclone-sdl-gfx) looks just like the original with small enhancements, while the hardware version (mddclone-sdl-ogl) aims to add new eye-candies to the game. It has anti-aliasing in both versions, twice as big resolution as in original in the software version and arbitrary resolution in OpenGL version, camera shake while walking, game state save/load, and 9 languages: English (default), Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian and Polish.
