Utilizing id Software's Quake engine, SiN is set in the anarchic future where local governments have hired private security agencies to help them stem the unrelenting tide of graft, crime and drugs. Players explore the chaos of the 21st Century as a leader of an elite strike force hired to rid the city of rampant crime and vice proliferation.
As they blast their way through vast and complex levels of unholy terror, players discover that the secret source of the crime epidemic is perhaps even closer that they first thought. Crawling with criminals and mutant foes, Sin features six distinct game environments, convincing graphic detail and a rich, engaging storyline.

Source code availabilityThere's a modding SDK. There were talks over the past decade to make the sources available under the GPL or even the MIT license. However with the transfer of ownership that has not materialized.
How-to-play On-lineSiN multi-player is currently only feasible on LAN or with a third-party server-browser. The digital version has severe game-breaking bugs and we would deem it unplayable. It is advised to play a variant of the disc version, which is uncensored anyway.
