It’s hard to pinpoint the “actual” release date of some older games, but it seems today (or around today) is actually the birthday of Capstone (The Pinnacle of Entertainment) Software’s final game built on the Wolf3D engine.
Operation Body Count is the younger brother of Corridor 7 by a few months, and while not remembered as fondly as other games at the time (As DOOM was the hot new game engine on the block), OBC still has a special place in many fans’ hearts.
To celebrate, why not listen to the 4-track soundtrack of the CD-ROM version of the game? OR you could make the first known released mod for the game?
Other Operation Body Count related things you can do:
- Check out Les Bird’s website! Les was one of the creators of Operation Body Count! His website is full of old-school gaming stuff he’s been a part of, including bonus Corridor 7 stuff!
- Civvie 11 makes entertaining videos about DOS games, typically criticising them in a comedic way. He has a 17 minute video about OBC, and it’s worth the watch..
- Visit this fan page for the game, by plasmapulse. Unfortunately the live site isn’t around anymore, and he never got to publish the cutscenes from the CD-ROM to the page, which is a shame.
- There is a fan-made total conversion of OBC to the DOOM engine. The closest we’ve gotten to a sequel.
