Firearms: Source is a team based first person shooter, rooted in the traditions of the Firearms mod for Half-Life. Firearms: Source brings the best aspects of Firearms to the Source engine, and then takes them a step further. You'll see a host of familiar weapons and maps, but you'll find the streamlined game play to be faster, focusing on aggressive, skilled play. From nearly the moment you spawn you can expect to be engaged in furious action.

Firearms: Source was just recently acquired by Spiral Game Studios and the Orion: Prelude team! New features and a brand new website... and dinos!

Posted by DysPatch on Apr 1st, 2011

Today, I am proud to announce that the Firearms: Source team has been acquired by Spiral Game Studios and the Orion: Prelude team. Under our new management, we have been able to add a feature that we have always wanted to, dinosaurs. We will also be adding new features like jetpacks, vehicles, and a bonus Nazi Dino Zombie cooperative gameplay! For this, I let our screenshots and our new website speak for itself.

Press Release via Spiral Game Studios:

Spiral wrote:CHICAGO, IL, April 1, 2011 - Spiral Game Studios, Inc today announced it acquired remote-based Firearms Source Development Team, a leading independent developer of action oriented computer and video games. As a result of this acquisition, Spiral Game Studios gains exclusive publishing and distribution rights to all FAS-developed titles, including the highly acclaimed source engine product, "Firearms: Source".

"People were wondering where all the KickStarter money went - now they know." said David Prassel, CEO and Creative Director at Spiral Game Studios. "The developers at FAS are a highly talented and highly motivated bunch and we think this is a perfect game to add dinosaurs to. We are on this sort of "Dinosaur Crusade" you could say."

The FAS development staff will remain independent and are allowed to remain where they currently are located. Spiral Game Studios will simply be acting as the umbrella towards all of their current and future releases. We have started integrating there products into our company projection and look forward to all the magic they will bring to the table.

"This 20k is exactly the motivation we needed to add dinosaurs to our game. Firearms was revolutionary... Firearms: Source was evolutionary and ORION: Firearms: Source will be Jurrassic" said Daniel Miede, Founder and Game Director for FAS. "Spiral Game Studios will provide us with the resources, the dinosaurs and the money we need to continue to build great products and to fill them with dinosaurs."

This is why I hate April Fools... No offense or anything, this stuff sounds retarded to add, but April Fools is that kind of annoying holiday where everyone can lie to you and laugh at you for being so gullible.
