After lots of hard work with fixing bugs, wondering why said bugs exist, handling crashes and playtests..
I can finally say that the sequel is on the workshop.

So stop reading this and load it up! Aim for the head, get up close and shoot lots of bad guys. Pew pew.
Features custom voice acting, textures, kickass music, beer and general madness.

If you haven't tried the previous maps yet, I strongly recommend you check them out first.

I enjoy your game and I can't wait for summer update to visit Zen, And hopefully more additions to bring life to Multiplayer because at this point people prefer to play the original Multiplayer rather than this, Maybe you should offer something new and unique like a Co-op campaign or something.

When I compare this game to Renegade-X, Starcraft Mass Recall and the upcoming Warcraft: Armies of Azeroth, they have more quality advantages over this one overall and even those are free to play and download. I am not paying a single cent for this indie game even when Xen is released despite under the Source Engine 2013 and limited multiplayer. Probably by then when this game is finished the graphics will be outdated compared to the more developed Unreal Engine 3 and 4 games, free or not.

I am already utterly disappointed with the developers using Valve's permission to sell the remake even when it's not worth anything at all.

then dont get it. If you dont like fps dont get this.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

Um. Excuse me, but it seems more like FPSs aren't your cup of tea than the game being low quality as all the games you compared this to are RTS not FPSs. It is more proper to compare this to games like DOOM and COD. Also, graphics aren't everything. Who gives a **** whether a game is made in Source, Unreal, Unity, or any other engine (unless it is some crap engine made by 3 russians in a basement)

Hahaha. He compared RTS games to a shooter game. Lol GTFO.

A lot of questions here. Here is a post answering a lot of them.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes

What is the difference between this mod and the one on Steam?
Why should I spend 19.99$?
Are both the same?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+4 votes

this mod is now officially dead.

The steam version will include mutiplayer, lastest updates and xen.

I personally fell like this is a game, because of all the original content the devs made to it.

If some modder that made his mod free come and say "**** you, they reused assets!" Also remember that The Stanley Parable ALSO used some assets, but still is a game and an awesome one. Why all this rage? Honestly they have spent 8 years on this and I wouldn't mind paying 20$ since this is a great title and almost everyone on the america is full of money.

(The rest of the comment wasn't for you, but mostly to the people who say this sucks, sorry any disturbance).

The mods not dead, they already said they are going to port over fixes and other things from the steam release to the mod when they get the time to.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

No. They are not planning to release any bug fixes of continue to support it as stated on their Steam FAQ
"Will the mod be updated with Xen and other features when it’s finished?
Unfortunately it is impossible to backport our new features to the mod engine. With the retail version we have access to parts of the engine we could not touch in the mod version."
