A few notes about the Wanton Destruction addon..

First from Charlie Wiederhold, former Sunstorm level designer, and current developer on Duke Nukem Forever.

"I want to thank Anthony Campiti (who founded Sunstorm Interactive and gave me my first professional gig in the industry) for finding and passing along a CD of Wanton Destruction he found recently. We've been looking high and Lo for it for years but it seemed lost to the ages. I personally think this is the best Build Engine addon Sunstorm ever produced and I was always sad the Shadow Warrior fans never got to enjoy it.

Duke It Out in DC, Duke Carribean and Cryptic Passage were all created by a handful of people (literally, you could count them all on one hand). In 1997 Sunstorm was contracted to do two addons at the same time, so we decided to hire level designers from the Build community as contractors for the majority of the levels and Robert Travis and I worked with these designers to pull the whole thing together. When you read the credits list you might recognize a couple of them as they have gone on to professional careers in the gaming industry.

The Wanton Destruction addon was completed and approved by 3D Realms, but unfortunately didn't go any farther. Shadow Warrior was a dream to build levels for so I'm happy that the work all the designers put into it will finally see the light of day. Even if a little late. Enjoy!


Second, here's some notes from Anthony Campiti, former President and founder of Sunstorm...

When Shadow Warrior was released, it quickly became the favorite game in the office. Who could forget those damn sticky bombs! When we were given the chance to create an add-on for SW, we jumped in determined to make it the best add-on product on the market. Our level designers did incredible work and stretched the limits of the BUILD engine.

Unfortunately, due to various circumstances Wanton Destruction was never released. Years went by and we moved onto dozens of other projects. But, recently I was going through our software archives and I found a CD-R labeled 'Add-on Archive 1'. I'm happy to say it includes a complete archive of the Wanton Destruction project. I quickly sent and email to 3DRealms so they could get into the hands of the Shadow Warrior fans! Enjoy more Lo Wang!
