Blood Omnicide is a project to port Blood Omen: Legacy Of Kainâ„¢ to 3D utilizing powers of Darkplaces engine. Main goal is to save original game feel and provide nearly same gameplay and balance. Second goal is to provide game SDK that is open for modifications and additions so Omnicide can be used as a base for expansion packs and mods created in the world of Blood Omen.
Being a legal modification, Blood Omnicide provides a patch that will port original game to new rendering pipeline, so would require original PC Blood Omen in order to play. For those who don’t have BO PC CD, a Sneak Peak Preview demo version fo Blood Omen which is freely distributed is included to the installer and can be used as base. However, it does not contain any FMV’s, barely playable (some models and sounds are missed, no starting scene) and will not receive updates in future releases.
