The world of 7th Serpent is set within the near future of modern day Earth. Advances in biotechnology and nanotechnology have allowed for biological enhancements that raise the bar for the quality of life. The government has decided to relax laws limiting cloning and intrusive surgical procedures in the interest of these advances. Serpent Industries, on the other hand, has found another application for these breakthroughs. They have developed a patented method of creating personal soldiers with distinct abilities and no remorse. The result is the perfect killing machine. Informant leaks to the media have partially exposed Serpent Industries shady projects and the public has risen in outrage against them. Constant rallies and protests have followed Serpent Industries CEO, Frank Serpent, for months, yet his only answer is that these are only false accusations crafted by rival corporations. Serpent Industries claims to be nothing more than a high-tech biopharmaceutical conglomerate dedicated to improve the quality of life for all.

The pressure is mounting on Serpent Industries as politicians start to back down to the public and introduce more restrictions in the biotech field. Violent outbreaks have taken place as the public decide to take action into their own hands, forming resistance groups. H.A.B.I.T. – Humans Against Biological Intrusive Technologies being the most radical of all resistance groups. H.A.B.I.T. wish to eradicate SI and everything they think it stands for, claiming that SI will not improve the quality of life, only the quality of death – as in the death of humanity. Nevertheless, Serpent Industries uses its massive stranglehold on the biotech and pharmaceutical markets while promising better life through nanotechnology to maintain power and control in and aging techno savvy culture.

You will play the role of Vince Petero as you awake within a mysterious underground facility and discover you have been subjected to experimental confidential military testing. The military has contracted Serpent Industries to do genetic experiments in order to create the ultimate soldier. As the 7th and most advanced serpent prototype revision, you are sent out against your will to complete a "field test" that coincidentally benefits Serpent Industries.

Max Payne 3 has just blown into town like an old lover so why not reminisce about the old days by replaying the original two games.... Modified!

Max Payne

The Real World
It wouldn't be a Max Payne 1 mod if we didn't have some high flying kungfu and bullet dodging now would it? The most recent of all the MP mods to be released, however it is only a demo. Lets see where they go with this!

Neo Trinity

It seems you got anime in my angsty. Katana draws you into the violent and chaotic world of an Assassin on the run: - from his Order; from the shattered remains of his past; and from the haunting screams of the countless people he's murdered.

Godlike Ass kicking

Max Payne@University
This mod was acutally modeled after a real university and a story played around it! It makes use of a few other mods like Kung Fu 3 Deluxe Engine (by Kenneth Yeung, MrUniq) and the Enemy Kung Fu (by Ghasp) engine to round (house kick) out the mod.

No safe place Stewie died for a reason

The Family
The Family is a truly unique modding experience, as it follows the story of the young gangster Tony in an entire black and white film noir-ish world of the 1930's mafia era.

In-game In-game

Max Payne 2

Payne Effects 3
It wouldn't be a modding guide without one overhaul mod, and this one is really good. With new spectacular unique effects and with lot of key features that will drammatically change the original gameplay. Everything is created to improve the original feel of the game without loosing the Max Payne signature.

Payne Effects 3 Features Payne Effects 3 Features

7th Serpent: Crossfire and 7th Serpent: Genesis
Thrusting players into a world of corruption, secrecy and vengeance. Two different chapters within the same universe. Made by ModDB's ye'old editor Stenchy and his team, so you know it is good!

Train Wreck Gameplay

Mona: The Assassin
Mona Sax is a contract-killer, a job at which she excels. When a Mafia boss sends his army of mobsters after her, assaulting her hideout and forcing her to flee through the city streets, it gets personal and real nasty. Play through a fan story of Mona Sax!

It didn't work, downloaded the whole mod size and then it crashed, telling me that there are errors upon installation. Why can't they just let me download the mod's installation EXE or zip into my HDD and let me take it from there?

Great work on the 2nd mod, exponentially better than Crossfire! I'd love to see it combined with Payne Effects 3, would make it one of the best mods for the game if that happened... hopefully we might see a continuation of this with MP3.

Sorry, but no. As it happens we work in the industry nowadays (DICE, Crytek) and I doubt we have the stamina to keep doing mods on our spare time. :)

I played through both mods, GREAT WORK, first of all, as I play all these mods and I see what's possible with the modding tools I don't understand why so few have been released after 6 years of this game being out. I hope you guys keep going.

The story confused me though...

At the beginning of Genesis, it says 'damon price is being sent to eliminate terrence whoever' but wasnt that the first one? Damon price wasnt in the second one...It seems like the intro for Genesis was more suited for Crossfire, and the ending for Crossfire more suited for Genesis..unless I completely missed something here??

Thanks for making this mod

it was a intro to tell you whats going on, at the beginning of Genesis Damon Price was also sent to do his mission. Its more like backstory really. So no the ending of crossfire is not suited for genesis, as you pretty are killing off other executives.
