(That bit was written june 6th 2003, hey, less than 20 days before i'm 19!), New edit to the text file, on my birthday
XD, anyway, the file is now being uplaoded to /idgames. This is Bughunt, an old, and never really finished
PC i created back in 2000, youve been sent back in time to 1996 and shrunk down the size of an ant to do
research on ants in somebody's back garden, but something went terribly wrong!, the ants have attacked the base, and
the only survivor with a re-enlargement machine has been carried off to the ants nest, so you have to fight your
way across the garden to save him, good luck!

The story of it:
The hell wars are going bad-millions dead,even more possesed and fighting against people who where only weeks ago
friends,lovers and relatives.Total war has raged for nearly 20 years.The jumpgates that started it all keep going
wrong,except in one place-a sucsessful gate has been made,not for travelling through space though,this one travels through time (this is sounding like twice risen eh?).Several old films where recentley uncoverd,including 'attack of the
giant killer deadly ants from zargon'-this gave scientists an idea,maybe giant cybernetic ants could be used to fight the
hellspawn,they spread like anything,and arent too organised and after hell was defeated would be easy to get rid of.
You step up to the gate,a person sitting at a desk seems indifferent to the fact that he's sitting next to THE technoloigal
achevement."name" he asks,you say it and then walk forward,theres is a bright flash of rainbow coulours,suddenley you are in a different place.As soon as you 'arrive' you look forward at a calendar-june 16th 1996-A scientist tells you to sit on a chair,you do.Another bright flash and your suddenley in a big black place,You look up-the scientist is HUGE!-Youve been shrunk down to about the size of an ant 'figures' you think,a factory making giant cybernetic ants in 1996 might stand out-any hint that whats happing is from the future warp the entire universe out of existance,or worse.
You enter a box that the scientist puts down,you feel movement then end up on the windowsill,looking out across a huge forest called the back garden,Several other soldiers are waiting next to a large jet plane,well large from your point of view-to normal people it would like like a toy.You get onboard and a few more people join you.When the plane is full you fly out over the garden,taking in wasps and flies bigger than buses "Pretty amazing huh" says a woman next to you "just think of those things killing cacodemons and stuff,people in this time dont realise how important they're gonna be"
You arrive at the base,it seems like your on simle gaurd duty,that and getting drunk lots.Sometimes the ants advance to the base,a few blasts from the giant machine guns stops them though.Then for a week,nothing-they willingly get captured to be studied and experimented on."This is getting spooky" you think as you walk to the bar,hours later you stagger towards the cabinet in your room,thinking 'dayyyyy wont mi-nd ifff i slep innn dooor'.Later that night,you could swear that your headache feels like gunfire,among the swirling darkness...
You wake up,something is wrong,none of the machinery you can usually hear is on,gripping your pistol you step outside your room-the base is devastated!-celings collapsed,fires burning,and blood all over the floor...
