This is a Demo release of DropTeam. This DropTeam Demo only has the following important restriction:
1. This release only allows you to play 1 of the game's many scenarios. The full version of the game includes dozens of scenarios and planets to fight on with more available for free by download update.
Apart from that restriction, this is a fully functional release, offering both Single and Multiplayer gameplay. This DropTeamT Demo includes all three OS versions together (Windows, Mac OS-X and Linux).
Players can use all of the dozens of vehicles (including the recently released infantry units!) and deployable items in the game. The included scenario is "Raid". It takes place on an inhabitable moon called Hopewell. Hopewell orbits a gas giant in the Wolf 9773 star system. Almost half of the moon's surface, called "The Scorch", is a radioactive Hell created by the destruction of an antimatter station that used to orbit the gas giant. The remainder of Hopewell has recovered from this disaster and is once again beginning to flourish with vegetation and a growing human population.
This DropTeamT Demo includes everything needed to connect to servers and play on the Internet or on Local Area Networks on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X Tiger. It also includes everything needed for players to run their own public or private servers.
A stripped down version of the game's manual is available in PDF format. This abbreviated manual explains everything players need to know about running the game and also what administrators need to know about running their own servers.
