A friend of mine recommended the game to me, and I bought as a reward to myself for surviving 8th grade (this was 1998).

And I hated it.

I tossed it aside for a while. But the joy of vacation turned into the summer doldrums, and I gave Deadlock another shot. This time it clicked (don't know why I didn't like it the first time). Played the hell out of the game on and off for the next few years. I even liked it enough to make a rudimentary campaign setting for pen and paper gaming (don't think I ever got a game going with it though).

It stuck with me all these years, and I bought Deadlock 2 from GoG.com in 2015. It was fun to revisit the old races.

What really put Deadlock head and shoulders above other games was its personality. The science-fiction setting is humorous, but has a surprising amount of detail given the era in which it was made. I've always been a little disappointed that it never seemed to gain that big of a cult following.

I've heard one of the streamers I like to watch talk about Deadlock games so I decided to check them out. Ashamed to admit I've never heard of Deadlock before that. Better late than never though, right? haha

Hello Wassner, welcome to GalliusIV.

You can share the video to the community (if you wish and, due to forum rules, if it has no blatant advertising).

Thanks.
