I can't believe I missed this announcement but on January 20, 2017 Treadmarks (released January 14, 2000) was made free and open source under GPLv3.

I still enjoy playing this fast-paced tank FPS. The controls do take some getting used to. Can be played with Joypad or keyboard/mouse. Multiplayer support.

Ah, Seumas McNally's game. Great game and even greater programming. It is nice to see its source code.

Great, someone asked me to help hunt down all the old demos for this game a while back (was it leileilol? VirtuaIceMan? I forget).

Sweet, thanks DosFreak. And a belated thanks to leileilol, I was able to snag that Shadow Warrior for the short time it was free. I think it was only free for a day or two.

Thanks, grabbed it. Any idea if it's the DOS or Windows version?

Just installed it. It's the windows version. The readme file in the folder mentions the DOS version though, so it's kinda meh. Still, get to play this for free.
