Very well made :) Going to your site now! EDIT: Hey the site is sleek and I can see you misspelt my nick :p. Good luck guys. BTW, how long did it take you to make this mod?

What about groupies? :p

If I had to choose one of those spaces I'd say the left. It's a bit more homey and despite the awful decor (those plants look half dead) I'd feel more relaxed. Also it has a real 70s key party vibe to it. Don't you agree?

Great post. Can't wait for Nidhogg. Time to go check out MMGN! Don't know about us Aussies sticking together and all. We're a pretty smelly bunch.

The lighting is just phenomenal as far as I can tell. I would normally feel claustrophobic in a small environment like this so the windows are a welcome addition. I should get off my *** and become a Phan.

Which Source mod made in three weeks was better? I'd love to give it a go. And I'm pretty sure most people who bought HL2 have no idea about the modding scene.

Curse deserves it's hype. I liked it alot. Loved it. Does this mean I have an inferior preference in games?

As for your last comment. I cannot remember a time when there have been more quality Source mods in development then now. Tales From The Galactopicon, Blade Symphony, The Rising... just to name a few.

Cooler heads bro

I'm not so interested in moral choice type games. I thought your idea was fantastic as a means of showing historical and economic processes that so many real time strategy and role playing games fail at.

There are any number of 'simple' game ideas coming out of this conflict that could be designed in a conventional manner i.e. say a tower defense game - build and maintain barricades with your neighbours to protect your community from attacks by pro-regime police (just like they did in Tunisia).

Moral choice type games strive to be something they cannot because they are designed and built in conventional game structures that define how real those choices are. For the most part they are utterly superficial because they generally only consist of alternative narrative elements which only prolong the game itself by having people play the game repeatedly or in a different manner to their original method in order to be rewarded with an alternate ending or two.

I think an alternative to this method of game development that would present people with 'real' moral choices would be a game where you have to convince the inhabitants of the game world of an idea. How batshit insane would that be? Thats what i'd like to see.

Fantastic idea. Wouldn't call them riots though, just a bit of old school street fighting. Bye bye Mubarak

Abe's Oddysee for Playstation. Gorgeous artwork, intuitive gameplay, mad laughs and immensely fun. For the first time I didn't feel like I was playing a flat/linear time trial platformer. I'd played alex the kid, mario, sonic and they were fun but afterwards i felt nothing. As Abe I was leading a rebellion, inspiring my people, helping them. I had a goal, a purpose. And I just read that a HD release for PC is being worked on!

So glad you've started this project. It's a great idea

Same here. Good luck though. Maybe I suck at reading between the lines so can you confirm this mod is 'dead'. I thought the post was a little ambiguous about that.

Great work. The explosions are pretty funny. Particle effects have been done to death though. It's like every source mod comes with a bad case of dandruff these days.

It's not clear to me either and the blurbs read more like standard profile descriptions rather then explanations as to why the recipients have been bestowed such an honour.

Obviously not all mods can be as genre defining as Team Fortress or Defense Of The Ancients (yes I know about AOS), so perhaps that space could be more informative.

Just a thought, perhaps a new page for each mod with developer/industry interviews/quotes on why these mods matter.
