A shareware demo disc including versions of two FPS-style games from Capstone Software: William Shatner's Tekwar (mistakenly called "Tekwars" on some of the packaging) and Witchaven. Although the file timestamps on this CD-ROM appear to have been overwritten in its creation, the file hashes for the demo EXE files indicate that they match the following demo version dates: Tekwar - 1995-08-15 Witchaven - 1995-07-21
