in the days when H&D2 screens could be counted
on the fingers of one hand two of the original
H&D team Michal Bacik and Radek Bouzek left Illusion
Softworks and formed Lonely Cat Games. They took
the rights to the original Insanity engine with
them and the enhanced version Insanity2.
Their first project "Atlantica" looks very impressive,
but they have been keeping another project very
secret. A few screenshots of H&D running on the
enhanced engine looked pretty good, they clearly
saw some potential and now have announced a completely
new version of what is still one of the finest
WW2 games around, Hidden & Dangerous Deluxe.
The new game will feature the original game combined
with the add-on "Fight for Freedom" / "Devils
bridge" making a whopping 32 missions. Using what
is now called the Insanity3d engine the game will
feature a long list of improvements, enhancements
and most important bug fixes! and an Editor.
All the latest windows versions will be supported
along with modern, faster graphics cards taking
advantage of those advanced features. This is
sure to appeal to anyone who is a fan of the original
games. The game is due for general release on
original game plus AddOn Fight For Freedom
in a completely revised engine.
Gameplay with dozens of new features

exchanged over the Internet with other
