Daedalus - No Escape now available
Thanks everyone !
Release date: 2014 mid year
Daedalus - no escape is a pure action 2D top down shooter. It is inspired by games such as Quake 3 and Unreal tournament in terms of game modes and gameplay, and also by the old Alien Breed games for the top down 2D view.
The control scheme is the same as for a first person shooter, so if you like arena first person shooters you will love Daedalus !


  • single player, multi player
  • game modes: highscore, deathmatch, team deathmatch, capture the flag ...
  • different control schemes: FPS-like, fixed camera, centered
  • cool weapons
  • lots of maps
  • map editor
  • original soundtrack
  • windows, linux and mac support

Try it !

An alpha demo is now available for Windows, Mac and Linux ! It features:
  • one map playable in deathmatch or team deathmatch
  • local play
  • internet play (server located in France)
Please note that this demo is not feature complete and quite old (October 2013). A new demo will be released in February.
Also as the internet server is located in France, you may encounter some lag playing outside of Europe. The final release will have servers in Europe and America.

You can download it from Daedalus website:


Hi! My name is Patrice Meneguzzi, I'm not a studio, not even a small one, I'm just a software engineer that decided to create the game on his free time :)
I wanted to play a game like Daedalus for a long time but never saw it coming ... so I decided to make it. I've been working alone on this project since the end of 2011, and I take all the time I need to deliver a fun game .. I hope you'll like it!
You can find more infos on me and the game on the official website[].


The game is running on Windows, Linux and Mac.
It requires on opengl 2.0 compatible graphic card.
After release, a demo will be available to ensure that Daedalus is running correctly on your machine.

Hi Buddies ! What's Up ?

Daedalus' is a Quake ( 3 Arena ) like , indeed we find the same nervous and intuitive gameplay than an Unreal or a Doom , easy to play for zero blabla or time lost about the choice of weapons in menu !

So , this game is made for past your nerves of a bad day to kill bots or friends and destroy the environment , if you hate Cod or search an alternative game , just try it !

You can also check a gameplay of the demo here :

Don't forget to support the game if you like it !

Good Game & See You ++

I have the latest as of June 26 daedalus-windows32-0.8.11demo. I'm using Windows 8.1 and I have a buddy also on 8.1 with the same problem I have. We'll watch for more players in the future :) Thanks

@Hollywood: Indeed there are currently not enough fans of the game to have constantly players connected on the demo servers. Don't hesitate to talk about the game to your friends to bring new players in ;)

For the launcher can you tell me what version of the game you downloaded ? There were some bugs in the first version of the beta demo, but the latest one ( 0.8.11 ) should be fine. Also what is your operating system ?
If you downloaded the game from the official website you should already have the latest version and the patcher should not even try to patch :)

The launcher fails to patch and all the servers I can see have 0 players. Am I missing something?

Thanks all for your comments ;)

@ricardocasama: sorry but I don't plan to translate it. The game has no story or anything like this, so I don't think that english only is a real issue

@Sweatshirt: you should try the latest demo ;)
