Soldat? What is this?

Soldat is a unique side-view multiplayer action game. It takes the best from games like Liero, Worms, Quake and Counter-Strike and gives you fast action gameplay with tons of blood and flesh. Soldiers fight against each other on 2D battle arenas using a deadly military arsenal.

It was made by Michal Marcinkowski back in (need reference). First public beta saw daylight in 09.05.2002 with number 0.9.4b. Michal has promised to release Soldat as open source if he ever stops working on it himself (roughly estimated at around 2008 or later). But after few years of his small activity on Soldat(due to work on other game, KAG) this idea was abandoned, and Soldat was taken over the wings of few community members that work for free to keep this game alive.
