The updated release of Blood from Nightdive has been released on Steam and GOG.

I was only able to play for about five minutes last night to test, but I am happy to say that I have already blown myself up at least twice.

Is that an actual objective of the game, or just a happy Ack-cident?

The game gives you dynamite early on and Ack is not good at using it. But if you really want a game that will blow you up, play Dark Forces. The thermal detonators are not thrown far enough to avoid self damage unless you backpedal as you throw, and every weapon with AOE has a huge splash, so you can't safely use them in the narrow corridors that make up most of the game's levels.

:lol:
I've played the first handful of missions in Dark Forces before, but maybe that wasn't far enough to find any thermal detonators. You're talking about the first game, right?

I do suck with them, but there is an achievement for doing this ten times, so I would basically run around in the first level and then frag myself when my health was low.

Being able to mouse-look without the fear of throwing up is a lovely new addition.

Ha, throwing yourself off the train in E1M3 apparently counts as blowing yourself up. Also, some of these super secrets are a pain in the ass to get without killing yourself.
