Spring 2020 Online Gaming Event

While all of you are doing the socially responsible thing and staying home, we thought it would be nice to do a little online gaming during what was, until recently, a LAN party weekend.

We’ll be gaming online from 3 pm (CST) to ~11 pm. All announcements and coordination will occur on the Laclede's LAN Discord!

The Games

Team Fortress 2 is a multiplayer first-person shooter game developed and published by Valve. Players join one of two teams, RED or BLU, and choose one of nine character classes to battle in game modes such as capture the flag, king of the hill, and payload. Team Fortress 2 has received critical acclaim for its art direction, gameplay, humor, and use of character in a multiplayer-only game and is a stable PC game to this day!

TeeWorlds

TeeWorlds is a free, open-source side-scrolling multiplayer shooting game originally created by Swedish developer Magnus Auvinen and now maintained by the community. It features simple cartoon-themed graphics and physics and relies heavily on classic shooter weaponry and gameplay. The game also sports a grappling hook and double-jump mechanics for maneuvering.

Pirates, Vikings, & Knights II (TeeWorlds alternate)

We may chose to end TeeWorlds a bit early for Pirates, Vikings and Knights II; a multiplayer team-based first-person action video game, developed as a total conversion modification on Valve proprietary Source engine. The game is set around three teams, the pirates, the Vikings and the knights—each with distinct classes and abilities—battling in a variety of game modes across various Medieval, Norse and Caribbean environments.

Unreal Tournament 2004

Unreal Tournament 2004 is a first-person shooter representing a fast-paced extreme sport of the future. The game, designed primarily for multiplayer gameplay, offers multiple ways of movement including double-jumping, dodge-jumping, wall-dodging and shield-jumping. UT2004 also features an extensive array of weapons, all of which come with a secondary fire. Some of them were designed specifically for use in vehicle-based game types, and typically appear only in those game types such as the Anti-Vehicle Rocket Launcher (AVRiL) and the Grenade Launcher. More than 100 maps are included in the game for all new and existing game types.
