this is an request for the name of an old classic PC game..and for the life of me, I can not remember its name, but would like to look for and play it again. What strikes me is, that the name of the game seems so forgotten, that I can not locate it, nor the things, I can remember of it in any listings of classic games (GoG..others). If you are an older fellow(40-50+), who played them all, can you please help me out? Thank you in advance!
Now, please allow me to list, what I do remember about this game; it was all about exploration (an island? Very vast game.) and to find out what happened. Clearly FPS shooter.
The game began very slowly (if you will; boring) but picked up pace later in the game.
It had to do with a lot of experiments on animals (I seem to remember apes!) which materialized out of nowhere to fight you, the player.
Technically, it was clearly released beyond Doom original, Duke Nukem 3D original and before Halflife Original, Farcry original. System Shock 2 original?
This game, in its time, was completely overlooked and clearly underrated because of the success of the beforementioned titles. Do you remember a game like Chaser or Alpha Protocol? I am not certain; but I think, it fells in that area. Please mention any name, that comes across your mind; much appeciated - thank you in advance!
As far as I remember (I could be wrong) the only FPS to come out before the first Doom was Wolfenstein 3D, which is taut as being the first FPS.
Are you sure it was an FPS and not, for an example, a first person RPG/Dungeon-Crawler of some sort?
I found this on Wikipedia:
Hope it helps.

Takes place on islands, you're experimenting with animals but it's more RTS combat wise but if I remember correctly there are some either first or third person parts.
Released 2003 and it's on Steam.
I can't think of a game fitting the small description releasing prior to 1993. So i'm fairly certain it wasn't an FPS, probably more likely an FPRPG. I haven't been able to find abything related though.
But i suggest maybe broaden your search to other First Person genres, as memories can be a tricky thing.
Sorry i can't be of more help, but good luck with your search
It appears he thinks it was released between 1993 and 2004, at least that what I got from it.
"Technically, it was clearly released beyond Doom original, Duke Nukem 3D original and before Halflife Original, Farcry original. System Shock 2 original?"
Doom was released in 1993 but Halflife and Farcry in 2004.
Well in that case, time to go digging. 10 years of games to go through. Bright side is that it's not a game within the last 10 years or it would be close to impossible to find it
The title I was looking for is Vivisector; developed by russian company 1C in 2005.
Goodness; we've come a looong way since what was avaiable back then - still, I'm having fun with it.
I was able to locate it for download free of charge on myabandonware and yep; even running on an Win 10 machine (albeit 4:3).
Thanks again; have fun!
