    .kkrieger was created to be a tech demo to see how small a game could be made. Not short, but small... as in capacity. Boasting beautiful graphics, textures, lighting, intricate level design, spooky enemies, small arsenal of weapons and sound effects. In its unfinished state, .kkrieger is about 100Kb in size. This is the most code optimized game ever made.

    Note: click debug to see errors and bugs

    If you want to run .kkrieger in full-screen, you will need to set your Linux Desktop to 1024x768 or 800x600

    Conclusion:
    .kkrieger ran perfectly as expected. I doubt the packages were even necessary, but I always install them as a base just in case. I played it windowed without any problems. At the end of the 10 min demo it says "... to be continued" but I haven't see any further development on it or anything like it. I have read that it was a programmers nightmare because of the huge amount of work it takes to keep a game this small in capacity. I'm thankful someone actually tried it. Its so small that it could play on just about any device.
