Heretic (computer game)
Using a modified Doom engine, Heretic introduced the inventory manipulation feature on the FPS genre, while enabling an up and down viewing system as well.
Heretic also introduced multiple gib objects spawned when a character suffered a death by extreme force or heat. Previously, the character simply crumpled into a heap of jumbled body parts.
In early 1999, the source code of Heretic was published by Raven Software. This resulted in ports of Heretic to Linux and other operating systems, and updates to the Heretic engine which utilized 3d acceleration.
