Classic first-person shooter Blood just had its source code leaked online

Classic first-person shooter Blood just had its source code leaked online

If you thought you’d seen it all in the past few days, you probably have another thing coming. Joining the list of classic titles that have just had their source code links dumped online, a classic first-person shooter from the 1990s called Blood is now up for grabs unlike ever before.

It is worth noting here that the party involved in this matter who has managed to hack into the game’s database to dig up the source code is none other than “x0r_jmp.” If that name doesn’t ring a bell, let us remind you that this is the same organization that came up with the canceled Duke Nukem 3D: Reloaded build leak.

«x0r_jmp” has been updated since then and now includes a link to Blood’s source code, should you choose to venture out and verify the essentials of the 1990s first-person shooter for yourself.

The summary:

  • Retro first person shooter Blood which was released in 1997 for MS-DOS had just had its source code leaked online.
  • Blood has now joined a couple of other games that have recently been dumped on the internet, including Mortal Kombat 2, Dungeon Siege and even Doom 64 which had its beta ROM leaked in the past.
  • The leak apparently comes from the same figure that exploited the shelved Duke Nukem 3D: Reloaded build. This hacker party goes by the username “x0r_jmp.”
  • Blood’s source code is now available on this Rentry website. Proceed with caution while downloading the file on your site.

The leak was first discovered by a Twitter page called Build engine aesthetics. Sharing with us some of the basic images related to the source code, here is what the site tweeted online.

As usual procedures, the source code of any software allows a developer or someone with the right programming expertise to change the essentials of the program in question. However, Build Engine Aesthetics makes it pretty clear that this isn’t going to be the case here.

Apparently, a GitHub link has already been prepared for the source reconstruction, so the latter has already gone down. The recent source code link to the anonymous figure will only continue to serve a comedic purpose, assuming there are certain grievances built into the Blood code.

In addition to that, a certain history will be preserved with the game, given how famous it was at the time. A significant amount of critical acclaim was headed Blood’s way at the time of the shooter’s release. From the title’s style of jokes to its intricately designed levels and fun gameplay, Blood didn’t take long to sell well and make a name for itself in the community.

We’re pretty convinced it’s leak season at the moment. 2023 has had a good start to its name, with several classic games coming into the spotlight when it comes to getting leaked and putting out the most important things in the front.

To talk about one, the canceled Duke Nukem 3D: Reloaded build appeared online, and that too in the hands of the same organization as the one in question. Moreover, Mortal Kombat 2 also suffered from a source code leak, not to mention Dungeon Siege – another classic RPG – facing the same fate.

However, that is not all. Doom 64’s beta ROM was also out in the open recently, making it possible to visualize what kind of content the developers scrapped right before the game’s actual release.

The leaks are coming left and right these days, to be fair, and we’ll have to keep an eye out in case more decide to pop up.
