The NeuroGen Incident

After four months of hard work, today we are massively proud to announce that our very first full co-op experience has been released!

Interstellar Marines is a game built on the promise of awesome co-op, and The NeuroGen Incident is the first time we've unleashed the full power of our co-op experience. Built in a level 6 times the size of our largest multiplayer map, The NeuroGen Incident allows you to play through one of the pivotal stories in the development of the Interstellar Marines program.

With difficulty levels ranging from Easy all the way to the legendary Interstellar Marines, The NeuroGen Incident can be played through multiple times with a different experience and path every game. You and your co-op friends will be fighting intelligent enemies, in different areas with divergent paths to success each time you fire up Interstellar Marines! We've even added several new Steam achievements for you to achieve during the fight.

Version: 0.5.13
Released: 18th September 2014

The kickstarter may have failed but ZHS are not giving up and neither are we, the fans.

To help this awesome project get funded every one needs to ship in. Go to their website and pre-order! And then buy atleast one support medal every month to give them some regular income.
