Metal Gear Solid fans, here is something for you today. Indie developer ‘franfistro’ is currently working on a top-down parody game for the first Metal Gear Solid, called UnMetal. UnMetal is a 2D stealth/action game where the goal is to escape from an enemy military base, and you can download a free demo.
Now while franfistro does not use the same names or materials with MGS, you will immediately notice the similarities. And, to be honest, this looks absolutely retro-amazing.
franfistro also plans to release the full game for free on Steam on October 2nd. Also, and while there won’t be a native Linux or Mac version, the game will be compatible with WINE.
Now while this free fan Metal Gear Solid game is not as impressive – visually – as the MGS Fan Remake in Unreal Engine 4, it has all the elements of Kojima’s classic game. So yeah, make sure to not sleep on it.
This free demo contains the first level of the game and you can download it from here. Below you can also find the latest gameplay trailer for UnMetal.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
