Cannon Fodder 3 Actually Happened, Demo

See, that actually looks like Cannon Fodder.

Well here’s a thing. You may remember that last January there was a flurry of excitement at the prospect of a new Cannon Fodder game. The 1993 Amiga classic still generates a lot of love, and people especially like arguing about whether Cannon Fodder 2 was an acceptable sequel, and whether Stuart Campbell ruined it with his sticky-up hair. Let’s fight about that now! But a third never happened, until the peculiarity of Codemasters licensing the title for a Russian-only third part developed by GFI. Codies quickly distanced themselves from it, and things fell silent. But now every other site on the internet has reported the spotting of a YouTube video of some footage by Twitterite superannuation. And, well, it looks like Cannon Fodder with improved graphics.

But with the worst music imaginable.

There’s also an unverified demo linked from whoever wrote the YouTube description, which I’m about to check for viruses, etc, by installing… It seems to be clean, but it’s very much in Russian, and I’m a little rusty in the language so can’t figure out exactly what’s happening. Let alone get the resolution improved. Nor turn this hideous music off.

To get out of the first area, go to the top of the screen. But beyond that, not knowing what I’m clicking on in the menus means I keep restarting missions or going back to the main menu. Also, and I’m not quite sure, I think the game might be an awful lot racist.
