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.

The Dystopia broadcast event is coming up, hosted by the always-entertaining djWHEAT. Lots will take place, and we hope to see everyone there! Check inside for more details!

Posted by urinal-cake on Feb 27th, 2009


After a successful Steam release reeling in over 28,000 gamers, the Dystopia team has put together a fun-filled broadcast event. To make it as memorable as possible, we have partnered up with some big players including LA's compLexity Gaming Syndicate, ModDB.com, the GameSurge IRC network, server host Trinity Gaming, Noesis Interactive, Xfire and the World's Loudest Human, Marcus "djWHEAT" Graham!

The live broadcast, airing on February 28th 2009 at 5pm EST (10pm UTC), will have three segments. djWHEAT and Dystopia's very own urinal-cake will start with an introduction to the event and to Dystopia that will be followed by a Q&A with Dystopia developers, with questions coming from both djWHEAT and the community present at the event (through our IRC channel on GameSurge, our Official Game Group on Steam and by calling in over Skype). The broadcast event will end with a Dystopia scrim being streamed live with play-by-play commentary by world-famous video game commentator djWHEAT.

Our timing could not be better. ModDB.com will be releasing their 2008 Mod of the Year awards on Friday the 27th, attracting a lot of attention from gamers itching to play the best and latest MODs. Also, LA's compLexity Gaming Syndicate will be hosting a day-long Counter-Strike event to pick the next team they will be sponsoring. Dubbed the Creative Complexity Challenge, it will kick off on Saturday the 28th at 2pm EST (7pm UTC). djWHEAT will be heading up the broadcast of that event and will queue the LIVE Dystopia stream right in the middle of all that eSports action.

Whether you are a seasoned Cyberspace decker or just trying out your first TAC scan, be sure to tune in this Saturday right here on Dystopia's homepage.

Kind of last minute notice, but I'll be there. I've loved Dystopia since before it was even released and I'm thrilled to be able to celebrate its newest version like this.

Enjoy the party Dystopia team, you've earned it!

It was pretty good, you missed a fairly good scrim. You can see the recording over at UStream.

you guys need to hire djwheat more often o.O

dystopia is a really good spectator game and if you have someone commentating the games they are even more fun to watch.
