Play as the Crash Impact Dummy with unbreakable charisma.

CID The Dummy, Oxygen Games’ entertaining and all-new action multi-platform game will be released in Q1 2009. Today Oxygen Games are pleased to release the first playable demo for CID which can be downloaded from

The Demo contains a tutorial to let you get a hang of CID with his tricks, skills and weapons and then it lets you unleash what you’ve learned onto one of the best (and scariest!) levels from the game – The Graveyard!

For the first time meet and play as CID, a loveable and impact resistant hero. CID is set in a near-future version of our own planet. Litigiousness and refusal to accept responsibility has grown to such an extent that any product manufactured or sold by anyone, anywhere, has to pass a near-infinite barrage of safety tests. Be it a steamroller, a plimsoll, or even a book, it’s got to be safety checked by independent government bodies in triplicate, and only after long-term safety testing can it be unleashed on the general public.

It’s in this world, with its laser-tight focus on safety, and rife with please-don’t-sue-me attitudes, that the lowly Crash Impact Dummy rose to occupy its current position of importance. Back in the old days, Crash Impact Dummies were only used when studying car crashes. As lawsuits became more prevalent, though, Professor B M Werken and D-Troit, joint owners of one of the main Crash Impact Dummy manufacturing plants, saw a gap in the market, and started creating Crash Impact Dummies for other things. They started off with more obvious uses like construction cranes and level crossings, but now make Crash Impact Dummies responsible for checking the safety of sponges, dog toys, contact lenses, you name it. But now all is not well between the Professor and D-Troit and some evilness is afoot…..
