Dystopia is a is a total conversion of the Source Engine that places players into tense combat situations in a high-tech world spanned by computer networks. As Punks or Corporate Mercenaries, players will fight through the physical world to gain access, via Jack-in Points, to cyberspace. Cyberspace is a three dimensonal representation of the world's network. In cyberspace, players must fight off enemy hackers and launch programs to gain control of critical systems and to affect the physical world. Gameplay progresses through inter-linked physical and cyberspace objectives, and players must work together to achieve victory for their team. Players will be immersed in action-packed battles, whether as a heavily augmented combat mercenary armed to the teeth with the latest in firepower and cybernetic implants, or as a twitch-reflex cyberdecker racing to infiltrate a cyberspace node.

Clocking in at almost 5 minutes, the trailer provides an amazing overview of 1.2 for both returning players and newcomers just getting up to speed with Dystopia. This trailer, created by level designer and artist twincannon and featuring music by the ever-talented bioxeed, is the clear sign of the coming release.

In addition, two of our Insanely Dedicated community members, Zero-Flame & KindredPhantom, has put together an in-depth player guide for 1.2. This new player guide goes over all of the new features for new players, and old players alike. Be sure to check it out!

Release Party Coming Soon we will be having a release party soon for Dystopia. for now, Play Dystopia!Noesis Interactive will be on hand to give out at a few prizes to the masses, with support from the kind people of GameSurge. Make sure to jump in IRC and the official Dystopia game group chat to partake in the festivities. After the release, we will be jumping in some official Dystopia servers provided by the great guys at Trinity Games, to play some Dystopia Steamworks at excitingly fast speeds! Also, we'd like to take the time to thank the guys at ModDB for coordinating with us to establish a great profile on their site!

I cannot install games through the steam website because it does not recognize the steam protocol, is there an alternate way to download this?

That link along with everything else I've tried just gets me an error. "Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (steam) isn't associated with any program." Reinstalling steam doesn't help, using other browsers doesn't help. Vista just doesn't recognize the steam protocol at all and wont open anything containing it.

Try directly on Steam; from the STORE tab home click game mods under the free stuff section on the left hand side. All of the Steamworks-enabled mods should be listed on there. Click on Dystopia and then the green INSTALL button underneath the image and description. Good luck!

I got it, I had to manually go into the registry and set permissions to admin on the part of the key dealing with the protocol. For some reason I wasn't allowed access to that part of the registry and that's why it wasn't working.

Go through the Store tab in Steam itself. In left margin, about halfway down the main page, there's a section called "Free Stuff."

Go to Mods, and Dystopia will be on the first page. This should bypass any issues you're having with Fx/Steam compatibility.

Edit: not to self - read other posts on page before replying. Fail. :(
