It's high noon in deep space.


Gunman Chronicles is a retail mod created by the now defunct Rewolf Software. Gunman Chronicles was orignally a Quake deathmatch mod named Gunmanship 101, then it was moved to Quake II's engine before becoming a Half-Life mod. At the Half-Life Mod Expo in 1999, Gunman Chronicles stole the show and Sierra approached Rewolf to make a retail version. After significant work, Rewolf was given some office space, funding and a mapper (Jeff Lane) by Valve Software to help complete the project.

No patches were ever released for the game, though further development of multiplayer continued sometime after release.

Gunman Chronicles is not available on Steam in spite of the fact that Valve Software owns the rights to it. It was planned as a free game for owners of Half-Life. In 2012, a group called 'Petition: Bring Gunman Back' was opened on Steam by the Team Lead of the Gunman: Reloaded mod project and multiple members of Lambda Generation, the Valve Fansite. The group is attempting to persuade Valve to a Gunman Chronicles Steam Re-Release.

Trivia

  • The company names Rewolf is a reversal of creator Herb Flower's surname.
