Games and things by IT-HE Software

Misbehaving in the Ultima Games

Ultima 5 - Lazarus

Six-score-and-ten oblations to a malefic Avatar

The fantastic remake of Ultima 5 in Dungeon Siege, as you haven't seen it before.
"Now go back into the sea from whence ye came, and wade your way west until you come to Blackthorn's Island. Beam yourself onto the island, and using two glass swords, kill both demons. You will have two more wonderful spellbooks."

Ultima 6

Things your mother never told you about Ultima 6

How to kill Lord British, visit the Land of the Dead, create very strange objects and much more.
Also features, Ultima 6 World Editor, Several Add-on worlds, and a character creation patch..

Ultima 7, Parts 1 and 2

A Fistful of Ultima 7

"The key to this game is not through following the Eight Virtues.
The way to succeed in Ultima 7 is serial kleptomania!"

Now featuring Fear And Loathing in Forge-Of-Virtue, a 'walkthrough' for the twisted Avatars out there.

And: Further Drug Experiments

"Hard drugs are actually a good thing, because they tend to kill off anyone stupid enough to use them."

Serpent's Isle: cosmic balancing act

"D!ckhead ran around the town of Monitor, killing cats with what I believe he described as a ****-off big hammer"

Now featuring: Starless and Bible Black, Serpent's Isle finally yields and a new Anti-Walkthrough is born!

Ultima 8 - Pagan

How to be a complete b*stard in Pagan

A walkthrough for Pagan, with an attitude problem.

"Get yourself juiced up on the magic mushrooms as often as you can and kill some of the blue theurgists. Get them when they start to turn red as they look just like Santa Claus."

Things to do with the cheat mode

"You're all-powerful, so don't bother to go through the door, just make one yourself."

How to kill Beren without cheating

"Beren must be fed to the Lurker. The only question is how."

And I said it couldn't be done. Hey Beren, fancy a swim?

The Magna Carta

"No free man should be hanged twice for the same offence"

Beren can be your friend if you let him

The Gallery of Absurdities

"But what Beren doesn't know is that the Avatar has been deallocated by the heap manager..
Beren now administers Justice to segment address 0000:0000...
...bringing the game to it's inevitable conclusion."

Ultima 9 - Ascension

Whacked Out Ultima 9

A collection of criminally insane screenshots.

"Greetings, tree."

Ocean Travel Without A Boat

Probably THE most abnormal way of completing Ultima Ascension

"Save, and restart.. QUICKLY! The game is not well!"

U9 Drug Nightmare

Linux and Ultima 9 meet. Linux spikes Ultima 9's coffee with acid.

"Muh.."

The Oracle: A Sham Exposed

'nuff said!

Things To Do

Stuff you can do if you get bored

"Okay, hide the body somewhere. Find another volunteer and try again."

System Shock - a complete (mental) breakdown

System Shock - the hacker's guide to sin

"What the hacker lacks in toes and legs, he makes up for in his arms.
In fact, the hacker has these wonderful gibbon arms that are thirteen foot long."

Deus Ex

Deus Ex - Sunglasses at night

Another brilliant game from Warren Spector is twisted into uncomfortable positions

"Head back to Tamagochi Road and look for the maid, who is still sleeping happily on the tarmac after her passage through the window."

This revised version (3/1/2003) has a few corrections and additions, plus the new 'Saint Paul' section..

Deus Ex - The Camera Eye

Screenshots to make your mind water

Deus Ex with a headache. Levitations, Rocket Fishing and stuff that can't really be described.

Deus Ex - Things Never Seen

Deus Ex gone horribly, horribly wrong

"Legs are fairly easy; if the doberman won't eat them you can always jump down too far and break them. Arms should be eaten."

Arx Fatalis

Ars Fatalix - The Quick and Easy Path of the Dark Side

Arx Fatalis gets the treatment.

"..go into the prison cell, where we weren't told the King was being held, if he was still alive, which he isn't anyway."

Am Shaegar's Diary

Fun stuff that wouldn't fit in the walkthrough.

Thief

Thief - Drugs, drugs and violence

At last, Thief.

"Garrett is now lying on his side and full of 'H'. Unlike the Quake marine, who just lies there drooling with a vacant expression on his face, Garrett can still scoot around on his side, and even steal gold."

Thief 2

Thief 2 - The MeNtal Age

Like Thief 1, but bigger, better and with more pottery.

"If you throw a flash bomb inside the girl's chamber, it will detonate blinding both her and Basso. This is amusing to you, but the game doesn't like it one bit and starts to panic. Basso and Jenivere will now both be doing Zombie impressions, and everything starts to come apart."

Return to Castle Wolfenstein

RTCW

What could be more pleasing than running around the lush countryside of Nazi Germany committing random acts of terrorism?

"In stark contrast to Quake, where the end boss is a sea anemone that sits there waving its fronds oblivious to your presence, BJB has to fight the forces of darkness incarnate in a final confrontation in a steelyard somewhere near Grimsby."

Wolfenstein - The New Order

Wolfenstein NO

A brain-damaged psychopath in his mid-40s goes on a killing spree in an alternate 1960

"BJB commits a few more murders, kidnaps Anja, the only survivor of the Mental Hospital Massacre, and then escapes in a car. Incredibly, nobody stops an obviously-stolen high-ranking vehicle being driven too fast by a mental patient in a blood-spattered hospital gown who's never driven a vehicle with a synchronized gearbox before."

Fallout 3

Fallout 3 - Capital Punishment

In which we go around cutting people's fingers off and looking for 200-year-old ready-meals.

"I am stuck in this f***ing hole in the ground, ten years old and apparently being forced to relive sucky parts of my childhood. Please send help."

Fallout 3 - New Vegas

Fallout 3 - New Vegas

Fear and loathing in New Vegas

"The Omertas! THEY robbed my dog!"

Morrowind

Morrowind - The Adventures of Cat-Dude

"The main difficulty is getting [Qa'Dar] out of his cage. Far and away the most reliable method I have found is mass-murder."

Oblivion

Oblivion - The Cat Came Back

"During the day, it's a crap-shoot... about half the time they will rightfully scream blue murder. The rest of the time - Chestnut Stables in particular - the entire team of stable-hands will stand around and watch lazily as each [horse] is systematically bereft of its mind, body and soul."

Skyrim

Skyrim - A Game of Dragons

"However, there is a way to fix the problem. Both problems, in fact. As with most things in this game, it involves beheading people."

Doom Add-ons

The Blessed Engine - "a patch for Doom that is so twisted, you'll never be able to look at an Imp again."

The Sky May Be - Probably the strangest Doom level in existence. New graphics and special effects -probably- not seen before.

Kansam's Trial - A new episode for Doom by a real perfectionist.

VSB Doom - an engine patch based on Voyage of the Space Beagle by AE Van Vogt.

DuckShoot for BOOM - a popular fairground attraction, for the BOOM engine

Binary Doom - attempts at binary logic gates implemented in Doom with Dehacked

PCI Soundcards for Ultima 7 and other great DOS programs

PCI Soundcards

More personal pages (Ultima, Doom, System Shock) may contain strong language.. you have been warned.
This page could probably be 15-rated or maybe even PG. Extremely sensitive people might be offended.

These pages are in a state of perpetual imbalance.
