Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory six years old today!

May 29, 2009

The Splash Damage astrolabe and sundial are in agreement, the Twelve Tapir Sages nod in unison: there can be no dissent – somehow it’s six (6) [SIX] years to the day that Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory was released. No, wait. There is absolutely no way that can be true. Really? Really? OK. OK, if you say so. Crikey.

A massive, enormous, colossal, firm yet still sensitive thanks to everyone who made Wolf:ET (and not-very-indirectly-at-all Splash Damage) the success it/we is/are. It’s been and remains a splendid and extraordinary ride and we have you to thank for it.

For old time’s sake, why not take it out for a spin? Coincidentally, we’ve cobbled together new portal-ish page for Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory with download links, a leaderboard, and other helpful bits and pieces. And while you’re at it, why not take Salteh’s Wolf:ET birthday quiz?

I’m just about to be nailed into my transport crate and sent to E3 to babble like a brook about our seekrit, unnanounced oh no, wait, BRINK, BRINK BRINK BRINK.

Odd to think that on this day in 2003, we were off to our very first E3, our hair neatly parted, our spats shined, our high girlish sopranos splitting the blue sky with peals of nervous giggling. Several eleventybillion game hours later, we’re still at it, thanks to you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
