Unreal Tournament (commonly called Unreal Tournament '99 or UT99 to differentiate from later games) is a first-person shooter (FPS) video game co-developed by Epic Games and Digital Extremes. It was first published in 1999 by GT Interactive for PC. Infogrames released it for the PlayStation 2 and a company called Redversiongamer released it for the Dreamcast home consoles. UT was designed as an arena FPS, with head-to-head multiplayer deathmatches being the primary focus of the game. Players can also play against computer-controlled players called "bots". UT is known and widely praised for its bot A.I., the product of programmer Steve Polge who had earlier risen to fame by designing the Reaper Bot for Quake, one of the earliest examples of an effective deathmatch bot. Unreal Tournament received widespread critical acclaim. In March 2000, Unreal Tournament was second on a list of best-selling games in Computer Dealer News trade magazine, behind Quake III Arena.
