ESF Is a Fast Paced, 3rd Person Fighter Based On The Hit Anime, Dragonball Z

Select your favorite character and fly, power up, transform, melee, and beam your enemies into pulp. Each character is given signature moves and abilities to compliment different style of play. Some are stronger in hand to hand combat, others are better with energy attacks. Play in three different game modes, deathmatch, team deathmatch, and capture the dragonballs. There is a learning curve so newbies beware. This is not your normal Half-life mod.

15 comments by Deverz on Mar 2nd, 2014


Sick of waiting for ESF:F to come out? Want to help speed up the process? Well here's how you can help.

Are you a skilled modeler or know someone else who is? Well contact us on our team speak server and ask how you can help.

We are mostly looking for people who can help work on our remaining characters. This will require creating a character model, building UV maps and fully texturing the model.

Please provide some samples of your work and be prepared to take on a project from start to finish. Please do not contact us if you are not prepared to follow through and complete your set task. It costs the development team time to train new artists on ESF's custom systems setting us further behind.

We are also looking for environment modelers (Mappers), Object modelers (To make the maps more lively) and Music Composers.

Team Speak can be downloaded from here

Our Team Speak server is you will normally find somebody from the team idling there. Raven and Mastasurf are the best people to contact.

We hope to hear from you soon.

ESF should move onto the HL2 platform soon. The game could become a lot better than currently is.

hmmm i dunno. what would the benefits be?

better-looking maps i suppose, better animations/physics, larger(?) playerbase; i don't think higher textures or polygon counts would be entirely necessary since they've gone for a very anime/cartoony feel, which looks excellent. there're also other dbz mod(s) on the source engine already. coding would have to be redone too, wouldn't it?

i don't really mind that it's just on half-life 1. i just wish there were people to play with.

I really wish this mod would come out for hl2.
I've played esf (along with dmz) in the past, but I've since lost my hl1 copy (and dont intend on buying another :-S )

Great mod though. the hl2 equivalent (dms) has nothing on this.

You can recover your Hl1 copy in steam. Give it a shot if you haven't.
