Damage Incorporated is a computer game for Mac and Windows made by Paranoid Productions (ported to Windows via MacSoft) in 1997 that uses the Marathon 2 engine. The player commands a squad of four marines in counter-terrorism operations. The game features network deathmatch, but not co-operative multiplayer.

While mostly a first-person shooter, it included elements of squad planning reminiscent of real-time strategy games. Graphics and animations are displayed using the Marathon engine's multi-floor 2.5D system. Critics panned it as bland and unexciting, compared with other war shooter games.[citation needed]

Richard Rouse, one of its creators went on to work on the 2004 game The Suffering as well as the 2005 The Suffering: Ties That Bind.


The title of this game was taken from a song named "Damage, Inc.", a thrash metal song by Metallica off from their 1986 album Master of Puppets.

The opening song is Death's 'Cosmic Sea' from the album Human.
