About Sven Co-op with 12 comments by ukAdamR on Nov 27th, 2014

Remember that news update we promised to deliver many weeks ago? Of course you don't, but in case you do, we are sorry. We ran out of Ritalin for our trained team of monkeys who write our news updates, and the only one who could hold his concentration long enough to write a news update was our top monkey Nih, who is writing right now.

In this small update we would like to just go over a couple of the new features that are in store for 5.0. First on the table is Toon Run. Its creator Koelzk, has returned to give this beloved map series a makeover. Some areas have been reworked and some areas are completely new. And there are some pretty imaginative ideas. We're not going to spoil the entire surprise, but we are going to show you a couple of screenshots:

Next on the table is "item_inventory". This game entity can be seen in the change log we posted earlier, but we would like to introduce it a bit more. To this purpose, AdamR has recorded a video where he demonstrates some of the possible uses, seen below. We hope to be able to demonstrate how this feature can be used in a real map in our initial release.

That is all for now. We hope to be able to deliver another news update at some unspecified point in the near-to-far future. Perhaps before Christmas?.. Scratch that, let's just say near-to-far future.

This game is increadible. Half-Life has an SDK available for easily programming mods, as well as a mod managment device built into the client for simplicity of changing mods. Open-Source modding enviorments are a great way for companies to make the game popular and interesting. Anyone can create their own game based off of Half-Life's work (which I doubt anyone would like to program the entire thing). It also has an SDK and server for the Linux enviorment (most Open-Source Operating Systems have emulatory support for Linux now days, personally I prefer FreeBSD for security. Linux emulation makes this possible). The game itself, Half-Life is awesome. Gameplay length is great, I remember the first time I played it, I thought it was almost over, the time that I was drawn up the machine lift, I thought, "I'm up top already? Well the game is pretty short, but it was a great game". Then I found out I actually have to break through the numerous troops and enter a subdwelling, and then the game is just starting even then. Multi-player is great, I should not have to go into levels.

Run. Think. Shoot. Live.In Half-Life, players assume the role of the protagonist, Dr. Gordon Freeman, a recent MIT graduate in theoretical physics, and also a recent employee at Black Mesa. After an experiment that goes horribly awry when an unexpected Resonance Cascade (an apparently completely fictitious occurrence) rips dimensional seams that devastate the facility, Gordon must fight to escape the now alien-infested facility as creatures from another world — known as Xen — subsequently enter…
